Audi brings world’s most powerful diesel SUV to NZ

Audi Q7 V12 TDI fq

Audi is pushing its TDI technology hard with the Q7 V12 TDI quattro being the world’s most powerful diesel engine SUV. With a completely redeveloped common rail injection system the twelve-cylinder delivers a mighty 368 kW (500 hp) and 1,000 Nm of torque from a capacity of six litres — giving the big SUV the sports car performance.

The world’s first V12 diesel engine in a series-production vehicle moves this high-performance SUV very rapidly. On demand, the six-litre engine catapults the Audi Q7 from zero to 100 km/h  in 5.5 seconds. Speed is electronically capped at 250 km/h. The chassis of the Audi Q7 V12 TDI quattro, developed and produced by Audi subsidiary quattro GmbH, is another indication of the vehicle’s dynamic potential. Modifications to the design and the range of luxurious standard equipment underline its status as the top dog of the Q-series.

The new Audi Q7 V12 TDI quattro will be available in New Zealand around March 2009 and is priced at $275,000.  Audi TDI models have been very popular in New Zealand representing around 43% of the total new Audi vehicle sales.
