The second such representative in a car the world simply is not present. It is safely possible to name also our today’s visitor Audi Q7 V12 TDI Quattro 2012-2013 brightest representative of German design thought.
Are ready for more details? We will consider advantages of the most “adult” representative of Audi, and of course one of the fastest: 6-litre engine V12 TDI came from motor racing, engine power of 500 HP, a twisting moment – up to 1000 Nanometers, acceleration to 100 km/h in 5,5 seconds, the maximum speed 250 km/h (limited by electronics), the sizes of a body at length more than 5 meters, an all-wheel drive Quattro, an adaptive pneumosuspender, the maximum ground clearance in 240 mm, seven-seater interior (can be six- and five-seater), extremely rich filling of the car by functions of comfort, entertainment and safety, refined materials of furnish of an interior, phenomenal roadability.
Traditionally automobile reviews begin with the description of an exterior of tested model, from a photo of a picture and video, in rare instances, when the participant of the test is sport penalties focus attention on characteristics of the engine and speed indicators. In our case we begin with the engine which installation caused weight of changes in appearance of usual Audi Q 7. The reader can think — why from the engine?

Thanks to two systems of Common Rail under the pressure of 2000 bar is injected through spray jets with piezo elements. Thus the motor compact, length only 684 mm, and thanks to a mirror arrangement of six cylinders is ideally balanced and counterbalanced. The huge twisting moment is transferred to wheels through 6 step automatic transmission. It is necessary for potential owner to address very accurately with an accelerator pedal, by insignificant pressing gas it would seem heavy new Audi Q7 V12 TDI Quattro in weight 2605 kg amazes with temperament. It seems that the fallen lace from your boot causes instant reaction, sufficient for explosion in a motor compartment. High capacity needs to be had, it is necessary to realize motor potential competently.

Established wide wheels of 295/40 R20 (as an option wheels are accessible 295/35 R21), — for which even it was necessary on 26 mm in front and 30 mm behind to expand wheel arches. For more rational and correct receipt of air to radiators of intermediate cooling turbo compressor on a front aerodynamic panel there were the huge air intakes covered with beautiful grids. The basic air vent of a radiator enclosure — a firm trapeze of Audi with the rounded off corners. The front bumper besides additional air intakes received weight of aerodynamic elements and stylish tapes of light-emitting diodes of the day running fires consisting of 12 bulbs on each party of an aerodynamic panel. At any angle review of Audi Q7 V12 TDI Quattro looks impressively powerfully, it is sports and it is purposeful. The car is created for “consuming” of kilometers of a road cloth on in other words speed for many off-road cars far for 200 km/h.

Getting to interior it is marked high-quality materials of furnish of the interior, the verified ergonomics and a German pedantry under the relation even to trifles. In interior it is simply pleasant to touch all, the convenient multifunctional steering wheel with under wheel pedals of change of drives caresses hands, ideal “handle” of the selector of an automatic transmission as if poured in settled down in embrace of a palm, the button, the handle, decorative inserts from carbon — a class!
