Rumours are saying that this beast will sprint to 100 km/h in less than 5.5 seconds. That’s over two seconds faster than the gas-powered Q7 4.2 V8. Design changes will be the big air intakes in the front and fenders that are a little wider; note the small black strips on the fender openings.
The car pictured here is completely undisguised except for a couple of thin black vertical-strips of metal at the outside edges of the front bumper’s lower air intakes. At the rear, it has a badge saying 4.2 TDI, but that is deliberately incorrect. The front-end styling shows that this is really the 6-liter V12 TDI, not the 4.2. The huge lower bumper air openings are on the V12 only.
