"Despite covering five times the - 6 - 31. Internationales Wiener Motorensymposium 2010 mileage and generating a higher specific output, the failure rate of engines is now lower than that in 2000. This was achieved in the design layout, using extremely tight manufacturing tolerances, using more durable materials and surfaces, and ensuring flawless quality control for each individual part. When it comes to the connecting rod bearing, for example, the slightest fluctuation in the alloy or a minimal deviation from tolerances can make the difference between the engine covering its full mileage potential without a problem and an early failure."

Other than both being V10's I don't see much else in common... As it should be, as one is a mass-produced engine while the other was a (almost) no-budget limit race engine. Brilliant marketing IMO.
