Audi is showing a cutaway model of its V12 TDI engine at the Detroit Motor Show. Remember, this is the most powerful diesel engine of the world. That’s why it’s great to see it in detail as shown here. Interesting article, enjoy!
While Audi’s race-winning V12 engines use a 90-degree bank angle to minimize the trade-offs between packaging, center-of-gravity and aerodynamics, the R8’s street-going version will use a 60-degree angle. This makes it a better fit for the narrower engine compartments of not just the R8, but also the A8 and Q7.
