The German based automaker Audi has recently announced that a new BiTurbo engine has been launched, this time in a diesel configuration.
After the competition from BMW recently announced its tri-turbo 3.0 liter six-cylinder engine, it’s now time for Audi to make its move, ant the Ingolstadt car manufacturer has recently announced that a 3.0 liter V6 TDI engine, which is using a biturbo setup, has been launched. According to the carmaker, the 3.0 liter V6 TDI engine is developing a total output of 313 horsepower, between 3.900 and 4.500 rpm, and it has a peak torque of 650 Nm (479 lb-ft), available from 1.450 to 2.800 rpm. The unit has been fitted with new technology like the start/stop system, and efficiency has increased.
Audi says that the new engine will make its debut on the A6 sedan, where it will be mated to an eight-speed tiptronic transmission and the company’s Quattro all-wheel drive system, which will allow the model to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds, before stopping at its electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). The new engine will also be offered on the A6 Avant and the A7 Sportback, where the two models will be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.3 seconds, while burning an average of 6.4 liters of fuel every 100 km (44.1 mpg UK / 36.7 mpg US) and emit 169 grams of CO2 per km.
