The first orders for the Audi Q7 V12 TDI quattro has already been placed, despite the fact that the car is not on sale yet. But the diesel SUV launched this year at the Geneva Motor Show comes with a very bad news: it will be priced around 180,000 euro (that’s around $283.000 - almost 5 times the price of the Audi Q7 4.2 Premium! - $58,600). Sales of the Q7 V12 TDI quattro will start by the end of the year.

The Q7 V12 TDI quattro is powered by the world’s first V12 diesel engine that generates 500 hp of power and 1,000 Nm (757.56 lb-ft) of torque from six liters of displacement. It makes the 0 to 60 mph sprint in just 5.5 seconds while the top speed is electronically capped at 250 km/h (but on the speedometer, the range extends up to 310 km/h).

The all new 2.1 liter CDI diesel engine which can produce a 204 horsepower. This simply means that the new engine could produce a fuel economy in the mid range of 40 mpg.

If I ever was in the market for a SUV, this is the one I would buy. 500hp, diesel engine with enough features to embaress BMW and Mercedes anyday.0to60 in 5.5 seconds. True the price is high, but then that is just speculation at the moment..

Audi is pricing themselves right out of the market.

They have got to be kidding, they better plan on offering other ’services’ for that price!
