Still want an Audi R10 TDI? It was unsold at 2012 Le Mans Classic Artcurial auction

By Johan Laubscher

The annual Le Mans Classic event hosts a very special auction. The auction is run by Artcurial and always includes very special Le Mans memorabilia and actual race cars. The 2012 edition was no different and the auction held on 7 July 2012 had a very special Audi race car. The car that was set to go under the hammer was a 2007 Audi R10 TDI. Specifically this R10 TDI is chassis #201 which twice raced at Le Mans and won the 2008 LMS championship. Audi Motorsport Blog published the original story last week, which you can read HERE.

The R10 which was entered in auction lot number 187 had an estimated auction price of 1300000 to 1600000 Euros. The car has been reported as unsold on the auction website results, due to the car not reaching its reserve price. It did exceed 1100000 Euros on the stand but this was still bellow the intended reserve. So this means there is at least one Audi R10 TDI that is still for sale on the market. A unique opportunity to own the only Audi R10 TDI in private hands, a very special piece of Audi and Le Mans history.
