Talk about a POWERFUL diesel!

I read from the morning paper that the new VW Touareg (sp?) will have an optional 5 liter, V-10 bi-turbo diesel engine that makes over 525Nm of torque. Damn! It will have the ability to tow 3500kg as well.

The other engine option is a 3 liter V-6 turbo diesel.

When the X7 comes out (if), I wonder if BMW will install some massive diesel powerplant as well.

Hmm, I think the 4.0 Liter Diesel which came on the previous 740d comes to mind. Common-Rail-Injection and 560Nm.

How's that ?
