I would definitely love to see the W12 engines on the Q7 and the Touareg if not the R8.
Atleast they have enough torque to overcome their weight disadvantage ( though they are fast still - the higher end versions)

I donno about the Q7, but the Touareg V10 TDI is pretty freaking fast! And MORE than enough for Indian roads.

You both actually think that Diesel Audi R8's and Porsche Cayenne's will put out smoke? GUYS!! Even a Diesel 3-series doesn't put out smoke, forget about the more expensive, more refined cars! These aren't Ambassadors or buses!!

And as a sidenote, even the latest buses don't give out smoke.
No, it isn't. You are thinking of a petrol engine that is essentially two V6s put together.

Maybe it happens. But all the cars I've mentioned which I've seen....well, let's just say you wouldn't guess they were Diesels at all. And I'm sure MOST people who buy a car that expensive will take care not to f*** it up with bad fuel.
you cant always be sure of the quality of diesel from where your filling. what if you have to fill from an unknown place sometimes? then? big deal if theres a little smoke when its revved.

He clearly said it's going to be a W12 TDI engine. I asked him again to reconfirm, and he said "Yes, W12." .

I'm not thinking anything, I'm just passing on what he told me.

F450.
Its not a w12 but a v12.
The W12 is a petrol engine and rightly mentioned before as 2 v6s joined together.

Sorry about that. I might have gotten confused. Or maybe he got confused.

Thanks for the correction!

Only if India could get good quality deisel, the v12 tdi would be a hit with people looking for high performance and low running cost ( not too low though)

Actually it would be difficult. I think some one summarized it best by saying "Lamborghini made space for the wheels,the engine,the suspension and everything and then they are like , oh hey, some one has to drive it! Then they chiseled room for a driver and a passenger."

It is comfy if the driver/passenger are less than 5'10. Any more and knees will be at eye level!

I'm a shade over 6'1 and I have sat inside a Murciélago. It was quite tough to get inside. Was crawling my way in. Very snug inside, I quite liked it. The Veyron, in my opinion, was even harder to sit inside - but possibly because I didn't even really want to touch it as I sat within it. So I kinda liquid popped my way in.
