gonna do it. According to a
, they're putting a race-derived 6.0-liter V12 TDI in the
SUV for 2008. The street version of the V12 TDI will be the most powerful passenger car
in the world, with -- get this -- 500 horsepower and a staggering 720 lb ft of torque on tap. And it doesn't end there. According to the same report, the monster diesel will find its way into the next
sedan, due in 2010.
Unless you've been living in a cave, you know that the V12 TDI is the engine that led the Audi R10 to American
Series dominance this year, and powered Audi to overall victory at the 24 hours of Le Mans.
Now, the million-dollar question is this: Will we see this engine here?
We sure hope so. Keep your fingers crossed...
