Yeah.  Actually, it has very little in common with the R8.  In reality,
you can think of it as a re-skinned Lamborghini Gallardo.  As you may
or may not be aware, Audi owns Lamborghini, and has provided a *lot* of
input to the development of the new Lambo Gallardo.

As such, the Le Mans quattro concept car is not far removed from
production reality as far as technology is concerned.  If Audi management
feels that there is a market for such a car, then it could be easily
developed into production.
