Audi R8 V12 TDI Concept production cancelled
Few days ago unofficial sources confirmed that the Audi R8 V12 TDI has 50/50 chance to enter production. Today these chances simply vanished due to Michael Dick, head of development at Audi AG , who confirmed that the the Audi R8 V12 TDI will remain only a concept car.
However we still have some good news: the Audi R8 will feature a diesel engine, the smaller 4.2 TDI capable of developing 326 hp, but we do not know exactly the launch date.
With 4125 cars built in 2007 and another 5000 planned for 2008, also the production of the spider version togheter with the diesel version was postponed. According to Michael Dick these versions have great chances to hit the showrooms in 2009 more exactly at the end.
