A Monster Diesel from Audi

Audi Q7 SUV
Audi's high performance diesel prototype racers have given its competition a tough challenge on the race tracks for the last decade. Now, Audi is taking its high-performance oil-burning tech and dropping it into the company's flagship Q7 SUV to create the new SQ7 TDI.

Under the hood, the SQ7 comes packing Audi's new 4.0 liter, twin-turbocharged, diesel V8 engine with an electric compressor.

The result is a luxury SUV with 435 horsepower and 664 lb. ft. of torque while achieving a manufacturer claimed 32 mpg.

According to Audi, the SQ7 is good for a sprint to 62 mph in just 4.8 seconds and an artificially limited top speed of 155mph.

That's impressive for such a large high-performance crossover SUV.
