Default Bi-Turbo diesel Audis now on sale



Audi may have the answer to disappointed M550d fans.
Quote:
Still reeling from BMW's announcement that the diesel 'M5' will not make it to the UK? Well Audi may just have the answer in the guise of a new bi-turbo diesel powered engine.

Available in both A6 saloon and Avant guises, the A7 Sportback and later in the year the A6 allroad, the new bi-turbo powerplant churns out a rather healthy 313hp and 650Nm of torque. This should see a 0-62mph time of 5.1 seconds for the A6 saloon (5.3 for Avant and A7 Sportback) with a limited top speed of 155mph common to all models.

In all cases power is transmitted via an eight-speed Tiptronic transmission and Audi's latest generation quattro all-wheel drive system. This features a self-locking differential and torque vectoring, but should you wish to go further a sport differential is available from the options list.

Despite the increased power output the new 3.0 BiTDI (yes that is what Audi calls it) should still return 44.1mpg with CO2 emissions of 169g/km - meaning road tax of just 190. The efficiency is thanks to technologies such as start-stop, energy recuperation and a thermal management system that quickly brings coolant and oil up to optimum temperatures.

The new BiTDI range is on sale now with prices starting at 43,810 for the A6 saloon, 45,650 for the Avant and 51,645 for the A7 Sportback. Prices for the A6 allroad quattro will be announced closer to launch.
