1000$ tune= an extra 200hp

Diesels will outlive gas engines. There much more powerful and have alot of untapped potential. they def. Belong in sports cars. A diesal will destroy any gaser the same size. Period. Anyone who disagrees never owned a diesal and modified it.

Diesel is great and all, but why is the cover photo of this article a pagani wheel and caliper?

I live diesels in proper applications. unfortunately a sports car is not one of them even this

I like diesels a lot, would like a tdi jetta or 335d.

Diesels are sick. Get some common sense guys. They've come a long way with computers. CHIP IT!!!

Diesels have been tearing up LE Mans proto 1 for years now. And they are surprisingly quiet too.

Max Bonds Jul 18, 2012

Brian A. Hatcher Jul 18, 2012

the body-color emblem is odd but i kind of like it
Description: We may even see it arrive as early as the Paris Motor Show this September. The best part? Power could come in the form of a triple turbocharged six-cylinder diesel with 400 horsepower. Although nothin...

Otherwise couldn't provide. But today's v8s put out so much power, 16 cylinders isn't ever necessary, it's just a show off move.
Jason Brower Jul 19, 2012
The veyron has 16, it's not impossibly difficult to make. But the usable applications for them are very few. They would have to go in a mid engine car so as not to ruin handling/steering. The car would also have to need that power that a v8 or v12
Kyle Hardisty Jul 18, 2012
I agree with Lukas. We need to brin the big v8, v10, and v12 back. Gtr with v6 is good. But Not these four or 2 cyl. engines
Lukas Lebs Jul 18, 2012
Lol earlier this month i posted a comment of BMW sizing down cylinders and putting on more turbos and i was right when i said by 2015 motors will come in 2Cyl .5L and 4 turbos...sad sad times

Is the R18 a joke because of it's diesel engine?
Christian De Prisco Jul 18, 2012
Perhaps they will make a c class or an e class, maybe an ml class but IMO not turn the Sls in a joke
Description: For Mercedes to jump into the game with a diesel-powered version their halo model would not only be incredible, but it also makes a decent business case considering the company's two main domesti...

I saw it on top gear, it's dead silent
Grant McHendry Jul 18, 2012
That's absolutely amazing.
