We told you all about the coming of Audi's R15 TDI Le Mans racer and now we can bring you images of the car itself.

Audi has been kind enough to release an official shot of its latest foray into the world of diesel powered 'arse-kickery', and we like what we see (who wouldn't).

The R15 has some big shoes to fill as the R10 was a dominant force during its tenure on the track. Reported to be sporting a "smaller, lighter and more efficient" TDI engine than the R10, the R15 will contest its first race at the 12-hour event in Sebring Florida on March 21st.

The R10 was powered by a twin-turbo 5.5 litre V12 diesel engine utilising Audi's common rail direct-injection technology. The R15 is reportedly a bigger step-up in technical innovation than the R10 was to the R8.

Sebring will be the test for the new R15 (as it was for its storming oil-burning forebears). Audi is confident the new car is up to the challenge. That means "look out Le Mans".
