Audi Q7 V12 TDI quattro

German carmaker developed the new Audi Q7. The model is powered by a 6.0-liter V12 TDI engine capable of developing 500 horsepower and 1.000 Nm of torque. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.5 seconds and to reach a top speed of 250 km/h. To send the power to all wheels, the carmaker used a 6-speed tiptronic transmission with superior shifting comfort. The new Audi Q7 has an adaptive air suspension and shock absorbers which are being electronically controlled. The output is being transferred the road through 20-inch wheels and some 21-inch offered as an option. The German specialists have made different exterior changes concerning design and offered leather-covered seats and carbon fiber inlays for the interior. Here the designers have focused on sporty, luxurious equipment which includes electronically adjusted and heated seats, Bose sound system and electrical tailgate. All the elements and equipment mentioned above refer to the model line offered for sale in Germany.
