รีวิว Q&A audi a8 tdi for sale

Why do we not use a diesel engine in a sports car?

Why do we not use a Diesel engine in a sports car? There are actually a handful of them available for several years, but unfortunately they are out of most people’s budget. Petrol engine is always lighter than a comparable Diesel engine of the same capacity, and much more so in the past. And petrol (gasoline) engine revs higher and at a much faster rate than a Diesel engine. That is why petrol engines are more desirable in a sports car. But don’t forget that Diesel engines produce much higher torque than petrol engines, which helps in moving the vehicle easier from a full stop, even from low RPMs. And the introduction of a turbocharger (and Intercooler - Wikipedia ) to Diesel engines make them produce comparable power to similar size petrol engines, albeit still at lower RPMs. So in effect, the much higher torque and similar horsepower will make a Diesel-engined car accelerate as fast as a petrol engined one. The Diesel engine itself has grown lighter, therefore bringing down the total weight of the car. Long time ago, Diesel powered cars were much heavier than their petrol models and hence, combined with the much lower power output, gave the negative notion that Diesel powered cars are slow. But no more of that. Just take a look at the Diesel powered sports cars available in the showrooms now: currently there are at least 10 fast cars that use Diesel engines (The fastest diesel cars on sale ): Porsche Panamera 4S Diesel BMW 435d xDrive Audi A8 4.2 TDI BMW 335d xDrive Bentley Bentayga Diesel Audi SQ7 Audi A6 3.0 BiTDI BMW 740d xDrive Audi A4 3.0 TDI BMW 640d All those cars can carry you and 4 passengers comfortably and safely but still have acceleration figures that can match any sports car out there, and don’t forget that they are all powered by “the humble” Diesel engines. So, in my opinion, the low number of sports cars that use Diesel engines only come down to one factor - sound. No matter how strong and fast a Diesel engine is, the sound it produces while accelerating through the gears cannot match the aural (some might say feral) sweet sound of a strong sporty petrol engine, especially the 6 cylinder variants and above. But if you’re talking about pure sports cars, as in roadsters/cabriolet just for 2 people, then as far as I can tell there is none available, well, none that really captivates the heart like Mazda Miata, a lightweight roadster with a perfect weight distribution and excellent handling, for example. But it has a petrol engine. VW, Audi and Peugeot might have tried rolling out Diesel powered cabriolets before but people are just not really buying them. The reason is such sports cars have to be ultra-light weight to be nimble and people buying them are even more interested in hearing the lovely vocals coming out from the engine, than engine performance itself. So a Diesel, no matter how refined or quiet, just won’t do in a small sports car.

Who is the astronaut in Audi R8 Ad?

Audi, which sat out last year's Super Bowl for the first time in seven years , is back in the game with an ad portraying a retired astronaut who rediscovers his zest for life thanks to a new Audi vehicle. The 60-second ad, called "Commander," was released today and will air in the first quarter of Sunday's game. The agency is San Francisco-based Venables Bell & Partners . The soundtrack for the ad is David Bowie's "Starman," which plays as the astronaut drives an all-new Audi R8 V10 plus, conjuring memories of his glory days in space. The vehicle, which Audi calls the "fastest and most powerful Audi of all time," goes on sale this spring. "Audi reminds us that amazing things happen when we shoot for the moon," the brand said in a statement. Super Bowl ads have played a key role in Audi's pursuit of a "progressive luxury" positioning in recent years. In Audi's 2008 Super Bowl debut the brand introduced the first-generation R8 supercar with a commercial parody of "The Godfather." Ad Age recently ranked that spot as the 37th-best Super Bowl ad of all time. This year's ad comes as Audi parent company Volkswagen deals with an emissions-rigging scandal that broke late last year. Some Audi vehicles were implicated in the case, which involves charges that VW installed "defeat devices" that can evade emissions testing. Recent Audi TV ads, including the Super Bowl ad, no longer carry the tagline "Truth in Engineering." Asked about that, an Audi spokesman stated in an email: "Given some of the current sentiment surrounding the TDI emissions issues, we have suspended it in certain marketing materials. But, Audi remains proud of its strong record of innovation, its robust engineering heritage, and the employees that strive every day to build, sell and service best in class vehicles for our customers.'' On Tuesday, Volkswagen Group of America submitted to U.S. and California regulators a draft plan to recall and repair thousands of 3.0-liter diesel vehicles containing illegal emissions software. The proposal comes after the California Air Resources Board and the EPA said in early November that 3.0-liter diesel engines used in Audi, Porsche and Volkswagen models since 2009 contained three emissions control systems that weren't disclosed as required by law. One of the systems was the "defeat device" that masked nitrogen oxide emissions in lab tests that were up to nine times permissible levels in the real world, according to the agencies. Audi said in a statement Tuesday that it is fully cooperating with the authorities to make the 3.0-liter diesel compliant, and its draft recall plan was submitted on time. "Now the authorities will review the plan and determine whether it meets their requirements," Audi said. "We hope to receive a decision in the near future." The 3.0-liter diesel V-6 engine was used in some versions of the Audi A6, A7 and A8 sedans and the Q5 and Q7 crossovers, along with Porsche Cayenne and VW Touareg, as far back as the 2009 model year. About 85,000 vehicles nationwide are affected, according to regulators.

Which hybrid vehicles will be launched by Audi?

Some Audi hybrid vehicles listed were concept vehicles, which utilised an internal combustion engine and an electric motor, and were used for r esearch and development(R&D) for potential future use of the technology into possible series production. Audi had launched its first hybrid concept car in 1989 called the Audi Duo and was the first European company to sell a hybrid in 1997, though only in very small numbers. Audi Q5 hybrid -The Q5 is Audi's first large-scale production hybrid model on sale first announced at the end of 2010, and sales started during 2011. Powered by a 2.0-litre TFSI turbocharged and direct injected petrol engine, producing 208 bhp, and a 33-Kilowatt electric motor providing a combined total output for the hybrid system is 241 bhp and 354 lb-ft. Drive goes to all four wheels, and the gearbox is an eight-speed automatic, but without a torque converter as the electric motor also acts as a starter motor and as a generator. The 1.3 kW lithium-ion battery sits under the boot floor Other production models - Audi A8 hybrid at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2011 Audi A6 hybrid (2011), 2.0 TFSI petrol engine and 53 bhp electric motor, generates a maximum of 242 bhp. Audi A8 hybrid (2012), 2.0 TFSI petrol engine and 53 bhp electric motor, generates a total of 262 bhp also, some concept models are - Audi A1 Hybrid Audi A 4 TDI concept e

Are Audi cars reliable?

I’ll preface by mentioning that I’ve driven nearly 2 million kilometers in a variety of American, Japanese, British, French, German and Swedish cars. My father was a mechanic. My brother was service manager for both Toyota and VW dealerships. I’ve had VW cars and vans and still own the last VW truck sold in North America (bought new in Oct. ‘92), we’ve had 2 A6 wagons, 1 A6 twin-turbo sedan with 6-speed manual, I’m driving an A4 Quattro Avant now, and I’ve also owned Mercedes S-Class, and I have a ’93 300SEC Cabrio (the last year that they were hand-built by Karmann, with global production less than 1,000 units). If you are talking about Audis built in the last 20 years, the answer is YES they are reliable — provided that you perform the maintenance needed. If you have a turbo engine, such as the 1.8t or 2.0t (or TDI) then you must spend the $$$ for the approved oil. If you think you are saving $$$ by using normal oil, you will find that the oil is cooked as it goes through the glowing-hot turbo and turns into goo, and you will discover VW/Audi’s infamous “sludge problem”. The sludge problem is not a vehicle problem. It is an owner problem. Putting in cheap oil will not save money. Our 1998 A6 wagon (that was the old style, the sedans changed in ‘98, but wagons weren’t updated till ‘99) was purchased with > 200,000 MILES on it. My 2000 A6 2.7t had 170,000 miles on it. My wife’s second A6 wagon, a 2001, came from Utah with 168,000 miles on it. And the 2006 A4 was bought in Vancouver BC with 117,000 kms (due for a timing belt) and rattling like a diesel because it had no oil-pressure due to sludge, because the idiot dealer that bought it at the auction did a quick $29 oil-change on it. (the 2.0t takes oil that is normally CAD$17/litre but it comes on sale at Canadian Tire a few times a year for half that price). The cars are supremely reliable and parts are dirt-cheap online. But they CAN be expensive to fix if something breaks, and they are heavy so things will wear faster than a Japanese tin-can, so I’ll provide some advice for those looking at buying a European car in general, and Audi specifically: SERVICE: Take the car to the dealer while it is under warranty. But once the warranty is over, stay away from the dealer. They are too expensive. Find “the local guy” for your make of car (there’s at least one, in nearly every place) where people lineup to get their car serviced. THIS APPLIES TO EVERY BRAND OF CAR! (not including exotics) AVOID: the 1990s to mid 2000s V6 engines due to the high cost of timing belt replacements. Avoid the V8 due to the high cost of everything!! The 4-cyl. turbo engines, and the later V6 with the timing chain are your preferred engine. (and any version of the TDI diesel is great too, but I’m in Canada, where those are rare). GET THE QUATTRO! That means that you get a “Real transmission” too. There are Front-wheel-drive A4 models with a CVT transmission. Most have no problem, but some fail, and they aren’t something you can fix in your back yard and will be expensive. Personally, I would avoid the CVT. (I’d go for a manual, but my wife wants an A/T even though she’s owned 5-speed cars too). Plus, you’ll get more $$$ at re-sale if the car has AWD. At least anywhere that gets snow, or has dirt roads. IF you buy a high-mileage car with Auto trans, go get the tranny fluid changed, just as a preventive maintenance thing. If you’re getting the engine oil changed, then the tranny fluid change is probably well under $100 and its cheap insurance. (I’ve done this with VW, Audi, Ford, Volvo, etc. cars. I’ve never had an A/T fail. I’m not sure it helps, but it makes me feel better knowing that my car’s transmission with 200,000 miles on it has new fluid) CHECK the FRONT SUSPENSION on A4, A6, A8 if over 150,000 miles. These are heavy cars. Like the BMW 5-series, Mercedes E-Class and S-class, the front suspension will wear faster than that of a Civic or Mazda 3 or even Golf, Jetta, A3, Beetle, etc. and the A4 and larger has (had) a “virtual link” front suspension with 4 control arms on each side, each with an inboard bushing and out-board ball-joint (yes, 8 ball-joints in the front, versus a typical American or Japanese car with 2). However, due to their popularity, there are many suppliers offering replacement parts. You don’t change the ball-joint and bushing, you just swap out the entire arm. Miele “10-piece kits” with 8 control arms and 2 tie-rods (the steering linkage) can be found online under US$500. Labour is a couple hours per side. So budget $1000 to replace the front suspension/steering components when you’re getting closer to 200,000 miles (320,000 kms). And that service requires a wheel alignment too. BTW: This is what a 2001 A6 Quattro Avant with 185,000 miles look like after spending $1k to replace the front suspension, plus $700 for an Eibach Sport Suspension kit (springs and shocks) and $520 for 17″ S6 wheels with Falken Ziex tires. My wife’s 2nd A6 in Regina Saskatchewan on our annual cross-Canada (Vancouver to Ontario) road-trip, which we completed in 2 days (cruise control @ 140 kmph across the prairies). Yes, I was stopped by the RCMP, but only once, and the constable spent over 10 minutes asking questions about the car before letting us go without a ticket :) CHECK THE MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE BEFORE BUYING. The used car lots around here have lots of Audis with around 115,000 to 120,000 kms. That’s when they are due for a timing belt ($1,500 for 4-cyl, but $3,500 for older V6), DSG fluid change, differential fluid change, radiator flush, brake-fluid flush …. around CAD$3,500 in service for the 4-cyl turbo engines! The owner sees that quotation from the service department, and says “how much is it worth as a trade-in?”. The cars get traded, and rather than do the expensive maintenance, the dealer sends them to the auction, and they land in a used-car dealership. But THE CAR NEEDING MAINTENANCE COULD BE THE BEST DEAL. If you do one thing: get the dealer to have the timing belt changed at a VW or Audi dealership, and include the receipt for the work (for warranty purposes) before you buy. Example: in 2016 I found a mint 1-owner 2006 (first year of new body, so looks “newer”) A4 2.0t Quattro Avant that’s NOT Silver on Black with all the power-memory-seats, front/rear heated seats, automatic lights and wipers, etc., but 117,000 kms. I got the VIN and checked Audi, and they had no record of the timing belt being changed (VW/Audi are on one database, so I can get a VIN for a car in Florida and check the service records for free at any Audi dealership in Canada for example … they will also print out wiring diagrams and stuff for you for free too, so you don’t need to buy manuals … important if you are importing US cars and need to modify lights to DRL). Similar cars were around $14k at other dealers. This dealer had dropped their asking price down to $12k. I bought the car for $10,500 with taxes IN, and the timing belt replaced by the VW dealer a few blocks away (the Passat and GTI had the same 2.0t engine). If I back out the taxes (12%) and $1,500 timing belt change (with new oil and filter) then the car cost me $7,875 … and now its good for another 117,000 kms. I did have to deal with the sludge. Online, VW owners in the US are spending US$1200 to have the dealer clean out the engine and install a new oil pickup. My German mechanic, Verner, (he was a BMW mechanic in Germany before immigrating to Canada) removed the oil-pan and cleaned everything out, cleaned the original oil pickup, re-installed with sealant to prevent leaks, filled it with the best synthetic oil, plus the optional Audi hi-volume oil filter for under CAD$650 including taxes. That fall, we drove the car to San Francisco, and then down the coast to San Luis Obispo just for a fun road-trip. It now has > 150,000 kms and has only had oil-changes and new tires. SUMMARY: Buying a 5 to 10 year old Audi, I get a car with 100,000 kms on it for 20% of the cost of a new one (an A4 Allroad with options like our A4 is CAD$55,000) including an investment in maintenance. Brakes are cheaper than Japanese cars and last longer. The exhaust systems will last 500,000 miles. You have to replace tires, wipers, and batteries regardless of the car, and the costs are pretty much the same. I would drive from Vancouver to Key West in this car with no hesitation (and I’ve driven that in the past, via Cape Breton Island going south, and via San Diego coming home). And I know that if I get in an accident, my chances of survival are much higher than in a common American or Japanese car. Meanwhile, I get to enjoy a superbly comfortable car with good handling, a good audio system, AWD for those rare days when we have snow, fantastic climate control, the insanely fast window defrosting typical of German (and also Volvo) cars for less than my friends buying a new Altima or Camry or Accord. Oil changes definitely cost more, but that applies to ALL turbo engines, including the new Hondas, etc. YES Audis are reliable. And they last a long time. If you don’t screw up on the maintenance.

What is the reason behind using a petrol engine in a sports car rather than using a diesel engine?

Some of the answers are correct, in that petrol engine is always lighter than a comparable Diesel engine of the same capacity, and much more so in the past. And petrol (gasoline) engine revs higher and at a much faster rate than a Diesel engine. That is why petrol engines are more desirable in a sports car. But don’t forget that Diesel engines produce much higher torque than petrol engines, which helps in moving the vehicle easier from a full stop, even from low RPMs. And the introduction of a turbocharger (and Intercooler - Wikipedia ) to Diesel engines make them produce comparable power to similar size petrol engines, albeit still at a lower RPMs. So in effect, the much higher torque and similar horsepower will make a Diesel-engined car accelerate as fast as a petrol engined one. The Diesel engine itself has grown lighter, therefore bringing down the total weight of the car. Long time ago, Diesel powered cars were much heavier than their petrol models and hence, combined with the much lower power output, gave the negative notion that Diesel powered cars are slow. But no more of that. Just take a look at this comparison between 2 cars from the same manufacturer, from the same year, same engine capacity, and from the same model (BMW 5-Series), one with a turbo Diesel engine and the other with a turbo petrol engine: As you can see, the weights of the 2 cars only differ by 15kg, which is easily countered by the Diesel’s mightier torque number (380 Nm vs 270 Nm), while horsepower are amazingly equal at 181 bhp. And to help dispel the notion that Diesel powered cars are slow, just take a look at the acceleration figures, in which the two are again a match for each other, which top speed is imperceptibly the same at around 230 km/h. And to drive my point, currently there are at least 10 fast cars that use Diesel engines (The fastest diesel cars on sale ): Porsche Panamera 4S Diesel BMW 435d xDrive Audi A8 4.2 TDI BMW 335d xDrive Bentley Bentayga Diesel Audi SQ7 Audi A6 3.0 BiTDI BMW 740d xDrive Audi A4 3.0 TDI BMW 640d All those cars can carry you and 4 passengers comfortably and safely but still have acceleration figures that can match any sports car out there, and don’t forget that they are all powered by “the humble” Diesel engines. So, in my opinion, the low number of sports cars that use Diesel engines only come down to one factor - sound. No matter how strong and fast a Diesel engine is, the sound it produces while accelerating through the gears cannot match the aural sweet sound of a strong sporty petrol engine, especially the 6 cylinder variants and above.
