  2. According to a German paper, on the 11th of March, Lotterer did a 1:42.6!! in the new 2014 R18 e-tron quattro when Audi and Porsche was testing their LMP1s at Sebring, before the 12 Hour race

  3. @olzoemt yes. nobody can believe about this quickly. Listen, i really ddnt expect that i will get such a cheap deal for my brand new car from this site. its worth a try here =>

  4. @chicago2699 yeah I know man, it's one of the best channels on YouTube I just don't like this guy on it. It ruins it for me when I see a new video posted that I really want to see and it's a shakedown with Leo.
    I hate all the videos where they just talk in a studio. Everything else though is perfect! I love this channel

  5. Wow, Baretsky's right, with all yhe knowlefge and genius he has now after building the ultimate diesel, imagine what he could do to a petrol engine 0.o

  6. Yep. It's a pity that Peugeot got away. They ran brilliant last year and just made Audi's victory even more outrageous. What a race.
