Audi has rolled out the first performance variant of its flagship SUV - the Audi SQ7 TDI. The SQ7 TDI is powered by a 4.0-litre V8 diesel engine with two turbochargers, producing 435PS and 900Nm of torque. The engine also features an electrically driven supercharger which is spooled by a 7KW DC motor. The motor is able to bring the supercharger to its 70,000rpm limit in under a quarter of a second. This more or less does away with any turbo lag by providing instantaneous boost even at 1,000rpm.
This results in a 0-100kmph time of 4.8 seconds, with the SQ7 topping off at an electronically limited top speed of 250kmph. Read more about the Audi SQ7 TDI in our first drive review. For the rest, here is a quick look at Audi's flagship performance SUV.
