Torque show

Turbodiesel V8-engined Audi Q7 packs 561lb ft of pulling power

Audi Q7

Audi's determination to offer a car and engine combination for every possible eventuality is demonstrated by another Q7 model, the 4.2 TDi. 

With its V8 engine belting out 321bhp and 561lb ft of torque, it's a powerful machine capable of 0-62mph in 6.4 seconds and a top speed of 146mph. 

And with careful use of the engine, it could return 25.4mpg combined economy.

The rest of the 4.2 TDi is standard Q7 fare, albeit loaded up with luxury kit as standard.

No prices yet, but the wraps come off at Geneva tomorrow and the Q7 4.2 TDi reaches the first UK customers in June.

Now share it...
