H Audi ανακοίνωσε έναν νέο bi-turbo 3.0-λιτρο πετρελαιοκινητήρας ο οποίος θα αρχικά θα τοποθετηθεί στα A6, A6 Allroad και A7 Sportback. Αποδίδει 313 άλογα με 650 Nm ροπής και συνδυάζεται με έναν 8-τάχυτο αυτόματο tiptronic κιβώτιο το οποίο στέλνει την κίνηση σε όλους τους τροχούς μέσω του συστήματος quattro.

Το A6 Sedan, με τον κινητήρα αυτό, κάνει τα 0-100 χλμ/ώρα σε 5.1 δευτερόλεπτα, το A6 Avant σε 5.3, όσο και το Α7 Sportback, με την τελική ταχύτητα και στα τρία αυτοκίνητα να περιορίζεται ηλεκτρονικά στα 250 χλμ/ώρα. Συνδυάζεται με σύστημα Start/Stop, καθώς και με ένα πρωτοποριακό σύστημα θερμικής διαχείρισης το οποίο φέρνει γρήγορα το ψυκτικό υγρό και το λάδι σε θερμοκρασία λειτουργίας. Χάρη σε αυτά τα συστήματα, έχει μέση κατανάλωση 6.4 λίτρα/100 χλμ με εκπομπές CO2 169 γρ/χλμ.

Τέλος τα αυτοκίνητα που φοράνε τον κινητήρα αυτό, διαθέτουν ένα σύστημα ήχου το οποίο προσομοιώνει τον ήχο του TDI κινητήρα να ακούγεται όπως ένας σπορ βενζινοκινητήρας. Περισσότερες λεπτομέρειες μπορείς να βρεις στο δελτίο τύπου που ακολουθεί.

The most potent Audi V6 TDI ever to enter production powers executive class Audi models to 62mph in a fraction over five seconds and returns up to 44.1mpg

  • Advanced new biturbo TDI engine heads diesel line-up in A6 Saloon, Avant, allroad quattro and A7 Sportback ranges – OTR prices from £43,810
  • Available now in A6 Saloon and Avant and A7 Sportback, and later in 2012 in A6 allroad – first deliveries in spring
  • 313PS from 3,900-4,500rpm, 650Nm from 1,450 to 2,800rpm
  • A6 Saloon 3.0 BiTDI quattro – 0-62mph in 5.1 seconds, governed 155mph top speed, combined MPG 44.1, CO2 169g/km
  • Sound actuator in exhaust system accompanies remarkable performance with sports car exhaust note

Knockout punch in a velvet glove comes courtesy of a formidable new 313PS Audi biturbo TDI engine, which is now available for A6 Saloon and Avant and A7 Sportback models. The new twin-turbo V6 is notable not only for being the most powerful six-cylinder diesel engine ever offered by the Vorsprung durch Technik brand, but also the sweetest-sounding. Available now in A6 models priced from £43,810 OTR, and from £51,645 OTR in the A7 Sportback, it combines trademark Audi TDI refinement with an exhaust-mounted sound actuator that enables it to deliver its mighty 650Nm output to the tune of a distinctly sporting soundtrack.Slotting in above the single-turbo 204PS and 245PS versions of the 3.0 TDI that already feature in the A6 and A7 Sportback ranges, the latest V6 has a two-stage turbocharger group that delivers a maximum boost pressure of up to 3.2 bar, helping the A6 3.0 BiTDI quattro Saloon to lunge at the horizon and pass the 62mph marker in as little as 5.1 seconds, and the A6 Avant and A7 Sportback to do the same in just 5.3 seconds. An electronically limited top speed of 155mph is common to all versions.

Like the existing TDI engines, the new star performer is backed up by technologies from the Audi modular efficiency platform, including start-stop and recuperation systems and the innovative thermal management system that quickly brings the coolant and oil up to their operating temperatures. With their help, combined economy in A6 and A7 Sportback models is on an equal footing at 44.1mpg – an impressive figure given the high outputs and low acceleration times involved.

Sound actuator

Thanks to an innovative actuator in the auxiliary channel of the exhaust system, the BiTDI A6 and A7 Sportback models don’t sound like they should be capable of such level-headed economy figures. The actuator system essentially consists of a speaker which imposes a defined oscillation pattern on the exhaust flow and transforms the typical TDI exhaust note into a more sonorous roar that is closer to the output of a high-performance petrol engine.

Without exception, power is transmitted from the BiTDI engine via an eight-speed tiptronic transmission to the latest generation quattro all-wheel-drive system, which features a self-locking centre differential and torque vectoring for optimum traction and stability. A sport differential which distributes power in continuously variable proportions between the rear wheels is available from the options list to sharpen and quicken response even further.

The mighty new BiTDI engine is available in conjunction with SE and S line specification in the A6 Saloon, A6 Avant and A7 Sportback. The forthcoming A6 allroad quattro, due to open for order in February, will also offer this exceptional unit.

Stand-out features common to all these models include satellite navigation linked to a 6.5-inch retractable colour monitor, Milano leather upholstery, the Audi drive select adaptive dynamics system controlling throttle response, transmission shift points and steering feel, the Audi parking system plus, light and rain sensors, cruise control and keyless go push-button engine ignition.
