Audi unveiled their new Bluetec TDI Q7 this afternoon alongside the V12 TDI Q7 Concept, which twists out a rather stonking 1,000 newton-meters of torque (738 lb. ft). The scuttlebutt on the street is that the R10-derived mill is a likely candidate to take up residence under the hood of production models in a year or so. Then Seal (a man who knows a thing or two about genetically precise German women) popped up and sang his 1991 hit "Crazy," pretty girls whipped the tarp off the white-on-white concept truck, flashbulbs popped and we all went off to see Mercedes' version of what DCX exec Thomas Weber called the "Ace Capades." Photos after the jump.
