Well...
http://www.touringcartimes.com/2016/...-new-rs-3-lms/
-The Audi is more expensive than the current cars in TCR, with (TCR promoter) Marcello Lotti setting the target price around the 100,000 €. Yours is 130,000€. Do you see that as a hindrance to the success of your car?
-We are selling an Audi, so our priority is to present a top product to our customers. We will have special safety features, a roof edge, a seat that is GT3-homologated, and other features that are Audi Sport standard, and which are for the customer to value. If the customer wants this premium product, we ask that price which, for us, is reasonable, given what the customer gets.
Let put parts from R18 and pump price to 200.000 because we are Audi Sport...

Speed must come first, not premium-ness IMHO.

One potential advantage is the saloon body style, better straight line speed?

For the sake of BoP, the speed can not come.

When BoP equalizes the speed, the focus of the developers has to shift to other fields to convince potential customers. After-sales support, affordability of parts, reliability, drivability, etc. These are all fields where Audi Sport has tons of experience, and a good reputation as well.

Why not just set a fuel flow limit and then let the engines be free to develop within a certain framework?

Cause free development doesnt work in this type of racing anymore. Thats why they've gone with BOP.

Doesn't work from a financial standpoint or a performance standpoint?
