    Super Audi!

    Supposedly Audi have just started with this concept and started to put it into production- its a beast 4.8 V10 twin turbo 620BHP £60k for one 5000 going to be made!

    Taken from Audi's website:

    With Audi's dominant endurance racers in its genes, the Audi 'Le Mans quattro' design study combines shattering performance with stunning looks. A 5-litre biturbo V10 sits behind the cockpit, developing 610 PS and an impressive 750 Nm of torque, driving all four wheels for the ultimate in traction and roadholding.

    Other Audi innovations include FSi direct fuel injection, pioneered on the Le Mans racing Audi R8 but now available on many Audi roadgoing models, and the aluminium Audi Space Frame (ASF) keeping weight down to just 1530kg.

    For a high-performance machine the cockpit is surprisingly spacious and civilised, with the touches of quality that Audi's interior design is known for. And outside? With its poised, muscular stance and dominant trapezoidal grille it couldn't be anything but an Audi; a perfect synthesis of motorsport technology and road car design.

    More info

    Audi's new supercar, the Le Mans quattro, has been given the go-ahead for production, the Ingolstadt company confirmed this week.
    First shown in concept form at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2003, the sports coupé, essentially the same shape as the concept, is aimed squarely at Porsche and Ferrari.

    The engine is thought to be a development of either the RS4's 414bhp V8 or the Lamborghini Gallardo's V10 (the concept was powered by a 602bhp twin-turbo V10), although VW will be mindful of not treading on the toes of Lamborghini, a stablemate of Audi.

    Audi says it does not yet know when production will start, or how much the Le Mans quattro will cost, but an output of 3,000 to 5,000 cars a year has been suggested, and the price will almost certainly be at least £60,000, putting it firmly in the path of the 911.

    Sales are expected to start at the beginning of next year.
