New V6 Audi TDI tops

Audi V6

What about the future S6 and RS6? For now, Audi prefers to focus attention on its offer oiled, with its new V6 TDI. And raises some questions …

Obviously, it is rare that a subject with no spark is present in our columns. The traditional dogma cars are not incompatible with progress of course, but certain principles are inseparable from a certain idea of ​​good manners motorized. It is hard to imagine the gurgling of a V8 or the roar of a 6-line stop at 4000 rpm … However, if diesel driving pleasure and rhyme together in a curious way, some oiled muscles are real curiosities techniques.

And then we do not hide, most modern diesel 6 cylinder rivals in terms of accreditation with the petrol engines of equivalent power. Finally, some … not in terms of pleasure certainly not noble. The breath of diesel always stops where begins the theatrics of a petrol unit well born.No need to remember, the high performance diesel entered morals. Including the premium and the premium, the vast majority of S-Class, Series 7 and A8 being passed in diesel engines, despite the enormous progress in terms of gasoline consumption.

Economic imperatives and incentives (carbon emissions, without thinking of the particles, although an effort was made by the manufacturers) have nevertheless kept the oil in a state of grace, not always correctly, especially on niche upscale . How to advance the argument of economy as the extra cost compared to gasoline equivalent is close to five figures?However, Audi furthers its TDI technology. During the presentation of the new A6 Avant wagon, the rings announcing the arrival of a 313 hp variant of the 3-liter V6.

Result, the figures claimed are outstanding: 5.3 s to bring down the 0 to 100 km / h or better than the V6 3.0 TFSI, and consumption of 6.4 l/100 km announced. Brown optimistic, but admit …

Remember: 313 hp, power was claimed some years ago by another diesel. The V10 5-liter TDI diesel which dramatically opened the principle of “boiler luxury.” Downsizing is revived on diesel … Ultimately, this engine to replace the V8 4.2 TDI, in a variation approaching 350 hp. And even to appear in the covers Porsche , Cayenne and Panamera, as entry level already share the 245 hp V6 with Audi.

Assume that a yield of 104 hp / l is honorable, but the question remains whether the reliability follow. The ability to collect the constraints and pressures booster injection have limitations, as we have seen a few years ago with the advent of high-performance diesels. Logically, the mistakes of the past were included. To be confirmed over the years …
