Sooooo, is the engine an Audi or a BMW? Seems like a BMW.

Looks like the original engine was a BMW race one built by a Swiss place. Raced by Abt on the Audi TT V8 and then bought for this project by Getrag.

May just be me, but at least 3/4 of the lap the guy looked like he was willing to wreck the car and anyone who was in the way.

-Looked ok to me, but you have to put into context the fact that all the drivers out there know what the rules of the track are - unlike normal roads.

It looks that way, but every "serious" Nurburgring lap I've seen looks the same...the car is very fast. I'm guessing 2400 lbs and close to 500hp (the Abt TT-R made 455hp restricted and was about 2200 lbs - see http://www.whel.de/Cars/abt_tt-r_2002_specs_en.html) It dispatched what looks to be a prepared 997 (turbo?) pretty easily as a gauge...and a few M3's were pushed aside like golf carts.

I love the opening scene down the front straight...raw, violent, unending acceleration. It's a German missle!

Cheers

Wow!!!!! This guy knows how to get around the place although he slipped up going onto the long straight. Amazing performance from a well setup racecar seemed to handle the bumps especially well, and what raw power.
