Following on from our front page news....

Audi is taking TDI technology to a whole new level with the Audi Q7
V12 TDI quattro, the most powerful diesel-powered passenger vehicle in
its class. The V12 engine under the hood generates 368 kW (500 hp) of
power and 1,000 Nm (757.56 lb-ft) of torque from six liters of
displacement, enabling the big SUV to perform like a sportscar. The new
Audi Q7 V12 TDI quattro represents a combination of superior power and
efficient fuel consumption, an Audi hallmark. With its sporty chassis,
modified body and exclusive equipment, the Audi Q7 V12 TDI quattro is
the consummate high-performance SUV. quattro GmbH, a wholly owned Audi
subsidiary, is responsible for production and development of the
vehicle. Series production of the Audi Q7 V12 TDI will begin this year.

Audi, the inventor of TDI technology, is penning a new chapter in
the history of diesel engines with the Audi Q7 V12 TDI quattro. The
world's first V12 diesel engine in a series-production vehicle moves
this big, high-performance SUV with supreme confidence and composure.
On demand, the six-liter engine catapults the Audi Q7 from zero to 100
km/h (62.14 mph) in 5.5 seconds like a top-class sportscar. Speed is
electronically capped at 250 km/h (155.34 mph).

What will it sound like? V12 now thats a lot of black smoke [:O]

This is a tame version of the le mans engine im guessing?
wow that will be amazing! even quicker when they figure out a remap for it!

I suppose its competition is the cayenne and x5? M class?
There is no doubt Audi Q7 is an amazing drive. But you cannot compare it with Cayenne. No way!
The front brakes on my Q7 keep squeaking under light braking. I have replaced the pads and now the discs but the squeak persists. I have read elsewhere that using ceramic pads is the answer but am reluctant to buy these in case they too don't work and I've just thrown good money after bad. Any advice anyone?
