The new 6.0 - litre V12 turbodizel can replace large W12, which is equipped with masthead version of Audi A8 with long wheel base, because the company intends to withdraw from the production of gasoline version of the engine due to too high costs of assembling the required standards and inconsistencies toxicity. In addition, the line will add a few more "charged" with the new units for gas distribution system. The base model, as before, remain peredneprivodnoy, while more expensive versions equipped with a full drive Quattro.
