    Exactly. Intended for heavy-duty butt kicking.

    I'd love to see a text of the R8 V12TDI filled with biodiesel vs. the CCXR that runs on ethanol.

    I'm also curious if this doesn't mean the replacement for the Audi A8 W12 won't use diesel instead of petrol?

    The CCXR still will smoke the hell out of the R8 but the Audi will no doubt be one of the most fuel efficient supercars in its class.

    Most probably both petrol and diesel powered 12 cylinder engined A8s will be offered.

    the W12 will be phased out in 2-3 years from now....(heard that from somebody who uses Audi engines for a racing car).

    And won't they make a new 12 cylinder engine (or an 8/10 cylinder engine with a similar output)?

    I don't know. If they already have the diesel, why should they?

    That being said, how many people buy a sports car for it's fuel efficiency?

    Anyways, this is purely for henk4 and all those that are also interested (but mostly henk4), a visual guide to the behemoth.

    It's V-12 not a W-12 right? Whats with all the talk of the W-12?

    At anyrate though, this fits better with their marketing strategy with them racing a TDI powered car. Though in reality the engine weren't the same(I doubt it shared anything with the race car, other than the technology maybe to cast a aluminum block for the diesel motor, and perhaps the crazy high pressure TDI fuel system).

    Yes it is a V-12.

    They were talking about what engines will possibly go into the next A8 and Henk said that the W-12 will be phased out in the next 2-3 years.

    i didn't buy it for it's fuel efficiency but it's fuel efficiency certainly helped the decision
