    Default Audi A8 Diesel...

    After the start of the new Top Gear last night, I went back and watched one of my favourite challenges - Driving the Audi A8 to Edinburgh and back...

    Now, let's be honest here - you don't buy an Audi A8 4 Litre V8 Twin Turbo Diesel to be economical. However, the fact that it CAN do 40 to the gallon has to say something for it... Granted, he had no heating, no lights, and never went above 1200 rpm, but in the long run it might not be as expensive to run as one might expect. Until it came to having it serviced of course...

    Jeremy reckoned it would do 21mpg normally, but even if I got it to do 30, that's still as good as my old 2.2 Direct Signum Elite... For motorway cruising, it would be a beauty, with HUGE amounts of torque and power when needed. Having looked on autotrader, you can pick them up for about 12 grand now on an 03 plate, which was the age of the one they used. New, you're looking closer to 70, but it's certainly something to think about and would mean you could actually say you drove a 4 litre V8 Twin Turbo...

    Would keep Baillies1992 happy anyway....

    I drove one of these recently and gas mileage aside it was a fantastic experience. Bags of power delivered so smoothly it was like yoghurt whisked by three dutch girls on speed. ( I hope you like the Clarkson analogy ). Great Car! Wished I could have afforded to buy one!
