With the reveal of this car at the NAIAS in Detroit, the Audi R8 V12 TDI must be done.

The look, colors, style are even more impressive in this guise and I want one.

That Audi looks way cool, Kyosho already announced making the R8 V12 TDI? That's pretty quick.

Yeah, I love the NACA-style duct, but it's the colors that grabbed me by the short & curly's. :giggle

I am not a fan of the TDi version of the R8. Aesthetically, it looks like a botched up design job by an aftermarket aero-kit manufacture. All of the refined details that made the design work for me are gone, overpowered by combination of crude details.

:storm

The diesel tie-in between Audi's race car and production car would make sense. I just wish they made the design differentiation of these two versions in more of a subtle way.

The Superleggra looks awesome. I am looking forward to the Maisto(?) version.

:cheers

I really hope someone makes the R8 V12 TDI too.  Maisto is making the Gallardo Superleggera I can't wait for it.

Thats the regular R8. He meant the V12 TDI Concept. Is that what you're saying?

That TDI looks like a brute. I like 'em both, but I'll pass on the Lambo.

The Granturismo is already produced by an unknow maker, Mondo. At least I've never heard of them.  There are several to be found on eBay.

I'd like to see the '61 Dodge Polara released in 1/18 diecast.  This is mainly for sentimental reasons, my dad had one, a metalic copper colour,  in which we vacationed down to the U.S. east coast one summer to Plymouth, Maine.
