2007 Audi Q7 V-12 TDI - Car News
Audi introduces a mega-torque V-12 diesel for European Q7s.
BY DAVE VANDERWERP, September 2006


Audi’s Q7 will soon have the option of a V-12 diesel, the first in a passenger car. Not to be outdone by its little brother, the VW Touareg, which has a 310-hp, V-10 diesel, the Q7’s 5.9-liter V-12 makes a massive 500 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque.

According to Audi, this diesel beast sprints to 60 mph in less than 5.5 seconds, which is more than two seconds quicker than the 350-hp V-8 in the gas-powered Q7 4.2. Audi says the diesel’s fuel economy approaches 20 mpg, a hair better than the Q7 4.2.

The twin-turbo V-12 has the latest 29,000-psi Bosch Common Rail fuel delivery system and meets 2010 Euro 5 European emissions regulations.

Q7s in Europe already have a 233-hp, 3.0-liter V-6 diesel option, and that powerplant is rumored to make an appearance in the U.S. in 2007. However, Audi says there are no plans to bring the V-12 diesel here any time soon.

The V10 desiel for the Touareg was here is 04'. Cant wait to see the price tag on the Q7 V12, probably at least 80k. The Touareg V10 fully loaded is a little over 70k and thats before taxes, licensing and all that bullshit.

This is a modern European diesel. It's not your 1980's stinkers.

That's sick, but we'll probably never get it. Also, I wonder what numbers that thing would make with software. Probabley some huge torque numbers. Probably kill the tranny.

cayenne turbo is 450hp does 0-60 in 5.4 and 13.8 @ 102 1/4 mile

turbo S is 520hp and does 0-60 in 4.8 and 13.5 @ 104 1/4 mile. So I would say probably not.

My fiance and I went to look at the Q7 4.2 the other day (as her vehicle). I think we may end up with the Volvo XC90 though. Turbos to play with there too.

Thinking about the horsepower and torque that twin turbo V12 diesel monster is giving me a headache.

Chipping it indeed will be redickulous. Bye bye Cayenne Turbo! [race]

leave it to the germans to once again, redefine the state-side perception of "sport-utility" vehicle.

both the sport and the utility

also, perhaps, RE-defining crossover?? at the same time? [eek]
