Audi R10 On Display

I’m attending this annual conference in DC this week and have a lot of notes to follow up on soon. But a pleasant surprise was walking out to the front of the hotel and finding a diesel-powered Audi R10 race car parked like any other car. So I whipped out the camera phone and snapped away. A real treat.

As you can see I’m no photographer but there are some interesting tidbits about the car. The steering wheel is not real – kind of like the TVs you find in a furniture store, it’s for display only. Notice the bottle of Mother’s wax in the interior. Lots of ducts, vents and scoops.

For more on the R10, Wikipedia has a good article, as does Mulsanne’s Corner.
