Audi has unveiled its latest R8 V12 TDI concept at the Geneva Motor Show. While it looks like the currently available R8 (V8), the engine in the new concept is the 6.0 liter V12 diesel used in Audi’s R10, the two-time Le Mans winner. The motor produces 500 horsepower and 738 ft-lbs (at 1,750 RPM) of torque. This allows the new R8 concept to sprint 0-62 mph in 4.2 seconds.

Highlights of the car includes an all-glass roof, all-LED headlights, more carbon fiber, larger air intakes, and refreshed front and rear aprons. The engine also gets revised: narrower 60 degree cylinder bank angle and a new chain drive.

No idea about pricing or availability. But, I’m pretty sure it’ll cost an arm and a leg.

More pics after the jump.
