Audi R18 LMP1- Hot or Not?

With Audi retiring the R15, the Audi R18 is really bringing up some conflicting commentary amongst us at the “Starting Grid”. As endurance prototype racers go, we are vastly greater fans of the closed cockpit design (+1). However, the “shark fin” on the back which has been infesting automotive design lately shows up as a massive fail on our books. (-1). However if it turns up to be faster than the Peugeot 908 update/replacement, we might let that shark fin go.

We have no idea on the amount of torque that this machine will put out, but knowing Audi…<evil smiles>
