Audi R18: Next generation Le Mans racecar to be unveiled December 10, going closed cockpit?

Audi R18

Street word has it that Audi will unveil its generation Le Mans racecar, the Audi R18, at December 10 and surprise, surprise: it will feature a closed cockpit!

Perhaps even more intriguing is that the story suggested the closed-top R18 successor to the R15 would be introduced officially in an event happening on December 10. The idea was news to us and though we’re often quite skeptical about motorsport rumors in the press this particular press source adds a bit of weight. Le Mans Live is produced by Michelin, who themselves are an official partner to Audi Sport. If the R18 had an official launch date we’d guess Michelin would be clued in.
