Sounds horrible, but better then the previous V12. Mind you, the old 908 didn't make a noise of any sort - just a whistle.

Diesels will never be able to sound like a wailing petrol V12 or a petrol gurgling V8. Not sure why diesel was ever allowed in motor racing.

I like the Audi R18. may not sound like a full on V12 petrol car but the car looks great. sounds ok.

it also has new 6speed gear box in the car aswell

Doesn't really sound great that 908. Mind you the Audi doesn't really have any noise to speak of.

It looks quick, but one thing it's not is pretty. Neutral

Anybody else noticed that the lights on the R18 have no.1 in them (@ 0:23 on the vid)?

actually i want to bring up the subject of the fia mandated fin.

now i think sav has something to do with it, as it looks like it's the fin that caused the peugeots's 2 blow overs in testing. Me thinks its his way of getting more safety cars into races.

Well you know sometimes its hard to disguise bringing out safety cars with on-track incidents, because there may not be any incidents. So if cars take off the ground, then it guarantees there will be safety car period's.
