Audi just won 24 Hours of Lemans race in France with their new diesel-engined racecar, the first ever diesel to win a major race. Using diesel technology inables the car to reach peak horsepower at lower rpms...The result, which a friend witnessed, was that the car basically only made a whistling noise while the other cars screamed past. The other amazing thing was that he said that the engine´s torque was so high that the tires literally ripped the asphalt from the track...and the engineers actually had to decrease the potential acceleration because the drivers couldn´t handle physically handle it and got what is called a "red out" from blood rushing to the head. the professional drivers admitted that the car was so powerful in acceleration and breaking that they had to learn how to drive again...leave it to the Germans
