Audi is to fit its Le Mans-influenced 5.5-litre diesel engine into a production car: the R8 super-coupe.

Seen in Detroit in 'concept' form, but said to be very close to production, the road-going R8 V12 TDI is thought to deliver around 500bhp and 738lb-ft of torque (as in the upcoming Q7 V12 TDI), giving 0-60mpg in just 4.2 seconds. Fuel consumption is estimated to be a very un-supercar-like 23.5mpg.
