This is awesome...diesels in sports cars....who says diesels are sluggish...

being a diesel fan...i would still prefer a petrol in a sports car. simply because you get more rpms to play with...any idea what is the redline on these engines?

LOL!! I know Rudra. But the fact that even a diesel powered sportscar is possible and nearly as much the same fun as a petrol one just makes me smile. Waiting for the performance of the V12 CDI engine.

Default Mercedes SL/SLK/CLK go diesel.



So finally we have some diesel sportscars from Mercedes Benz. The SL400 CDI Biturbo, SLK320 CDI Tri-Turbo (Yes TRI-Turbo) and the CLK320 CDI. Specs of the SL400 are not yet released , but it does accelerate to 100 in 5.8s. Quite quick for a diesel.

Chk out the links here :

2005 Mercedes-Benz SL 400 CDI

2005 Mercedes-Benz CLK 320 CDI

2005 Mercedes-Benz SLK 320 CDI Tri-Turbo

All the above are at present show cars. But they could possibly make their way to production.
