The Audi R8 is not only the best-looking car in its category, but it is also one of the fastest, although it’s 6.0-liter V12 engine does mean that it is one of the quickest fuel-burners as well. However, this means that the car is one of the most powerful as well.
This soon-to-be best car lease deal was first introduced earlier in 2008 at the Detroit Motor show, a brilliant red two-seater sports vehicle packed with 500 horsepower. The original R8 was donned in silver but after much internal debate, according to Audi, red was the chosen color to highlight the diesel feature of the car. A chrome finish for air intake and aerodynamic aid tops off this car, inspired by the Audi Le Mans diesel endurance racers.
The TDI has a new engine cover, wider air intakes, a new rear wing and more aero-dynamic parts to match its speed. Another intake is mounted on the roof as well as blade-like spoilers inside the front intakes. One might liken the design to the 1991 Audi Avus concept car. Inside, the cabin is smaller and there is no space for storing luggage due to the larger engine. In fact, the engine is so large the rear view mirror is virtually useless. A reverse camera has been fitted to the adjustable wing in the rear to compensate for this.
The car can hit 0-62 miles per hour in 4.2 seconds with a top speed of 200 miles per hour, much faster than the V8 gas version from Audi. There is also a new wheel-mounted start button that allows the priming of the ignition on an initial press. The second press starts the V12. The engine is not as loud as many might expect. This best car lease deal lets out a metallic buzz more than a soaring scream as the rev increases. Response, however, is not an issue.
The Audi R8 V12 TDI will go on sale perhaps in 2010 and there is the very real chance that it will be limited in stock. However, this is the world’s first diesel-powered super car and there will definitely be no shortage when it comes to getting behind the wheel and fulfilling one’s need for speed.
