626lb ft Torque

Could make all the other 4x4's a bit underpowered. Is this the engine which will end up in the R8?

I believe the R8 diesel is having the V12 that's going in the Q7.

I just don't know why they don't go straight for the W16 instead

That V12 R8 is going to be mad

Big fan of the facelifted Touaregs (with larger wheels) full stop. Disguise their bulk very well, as does the Merc ML for that matter, but not so the new X5 IMHO - looks huge compared to its predecessor! Still looks good though...

I'd like a big 4x4 but not sure I could stomach the running costs, but there you go.
