Audi has released the final specs of its upcoming 2009 Audi Q7 V12 TDI performance SUV. Powered by a mighty but fuel efficient V12 diesel engine, the premium SUV will take only 5.5 seconds to accelerate from zero to 100KM/H and will deliver fuel efficiency of 20.8 mpg (11.3 liters of diesel fuel per 100km). Not bad for such a monster of a car.
Although the diesel-powered Q7 can not beat its main competitor -the 2009 Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG 4MATIC with its 5.0 seconds 0-100km/h sprint and a base price tag of only €101,800- the 2009 Audi Q7 V12 TDI still represents an interesting -but pricey- deal.
The huge crossover SUV comes equipped with an aluminum chassis with a double wishbone suspension set-up up front and sports an adaptive air suspension as well as electronically controlled shock absorbers with dynamic roll stabilization. Sporting a set of standard 20-inch wheels and steel brakes, the car may also be fitted with 21-inch alloys and 20-inch carbon-ceramic brake disks with eight-piston brake calipers front and four-piston on the rear.
The Q7 V12 TDI also sports new body kit with more prominent wheel arches, steel underbody protector, darkened tail lights, and dual oval exhausts. There is also an optional panoramic sunroof and this sort of things.
