Pic Of The Week: Audi R18

We generally do our best to respond to popular demand with POTW. So, after Tuesday's story about the new Audi R18 Le Mans challenger's test at Sebring precipitated a gaggle of calls for the car to be made the subject of pic of the week, that's just what we've done.

But instead of the rather unglamorous shots taken at Sebring (yes, the location is pretty exotic, but the photos don't really do it justice), we've gone for this stark but menacing studio shot, which should please the PH detail fiends no end.

The only thing we worry about is that it might seem a little scary when you're at your most delicate. So try not to spill your coffee over your keyboard when you turn your computer on first thing in the morning - which is exactly what happened to us...

It really is quite a menacing sight - you would certainly move out of the way pretty smartly if you were driving a GT2 Porsche and you saw this closing in on you down the Hunaudières straight...

    Where is this car actually made and designed? Is it a UK made car from someone like Lola wearing a badge of convenience or is it designed and maunfactured by Audi in Germany. A quick google reveals little.
