Autobahn A8 runs between Munich and Stuttgart. The white Audi Q7 is headed for Augsburg. On a flat, straight stretch of autobahn, the tachometer is redlined at a leisurely 4200 rpm, yet the digital speedometer readout climbs to 287 kph – nearly 180 mph. That’s what the world’s only production twelve-cylinder diesel engine can do in a nearly three-ton SUV.
This 5.9-liter V-12 does Rudolf Diesel proud.
