Audi Le Mans confirmed
As we were practically assured more than a year ago (AW, Feb. 16, 2004),
Audi confirmed plans to build a flagship sports car starting in 2007 based
on the Le Mans quattro concept that took the AutoWeek Editors' Best Concept
award at the 2003 Frankfurt show.
Reportedly dubbed R9, the production car will be based on the Lamborghini
Gallardo-mid-engine, all-wheel drive-and will be powered by either a detuned
version of the Gallardo's 5.0-liter 500-hp V10 or the Audi RS4's 4.2-liter
420-hp V8.

Well, uhmmm I was hoping for a 600hp tt as originally touted.
Which begs the question, "If a car is DEtuned can it be REtuned?"  A morning
at uncle bob's followed by parts pick up at Rossato's should do it I think.

Bill ~wondering where to get 20" snow tires? (and the cash) M
