It was rumored for some days now, but with the wrong model. The Audi Q7 will receive the V12 diesel engine derived from the Audi R10 diesel race car with 500 bhp and 1000 Nm torque! Wow, that's great news and once more Audi is proving their Vorsprung mentality.
You still have to wait until 2008 to see, feel and hear the Audi Q7 V12 6.0 TDI (sounds pretty impressive!) on the roads, but that's absolutely worthwhile.
In 2010 the V12 diesel engine will also be placed into the next-generation Audi A8.
