    Just shows how far diesel engines have come! that and the audi at le mans. I'd be happy with just one of those engines with 750nm of torque! may have to extend the bonnet slightly though

    We should have drove in front of them during the record bid at 15mph....see how they like it!

    Andy Green also drove Thrust SSC and is the only man to go supersonic in a car.

    You watch what happens next.
    Audi will stick one of those Le Mans winning V10 TDi's into an aerodynamic tube, bolt on some wheels and break the record again.
    Well done to JCB, but I can't see that record standing too long, it's too juicy a PR apple now it has raised it's head and made the press.

    However I read that Peugeot are entering a TDi in Le Mans next year as well so it may take Audi's mind from the record for a while.
