Audi unveil R15's full colour scheme

Audi R15 TDIAudi have unveiled the new R15 TDI in its full colour scheme ahead of its debut at the Sebring 12 Hours later this month.

The first images of the successor to the all-conquering R8 and R10 in testing were revealed by last month, but Audi have now officially launched the car in the traditional silver and red factory colours.

Audi motorsport boss Dr Wolfgang Ullrich is confident that the R15 is capable of continuing his company's long run of sportscar success - the marque having won the Le Mans 24 Hours for eight of the last nine years.

"The R15 TDI has many detailed technical solutions never seen before on a sports prototype," said Ullrich. "To a certain extent we followed entirely new routes. With the R15 TDI we have created the base to be in a position to win also in 2009."

The factory Joest team will run two R15s at Sebring and expand to a three-car line-up for the Le Mans 24 Hours. Those events are currently the car's only confirmed 2009 outings as Audi have withdrawn from both the Le Mans Series and American Le Mans Series.
