Yesterday, Audi rolled out its Q7 TDI V12 concept — an ultra-swank wrapper for the Le Mans winning dozen-banger that will show up in a production Q7 this year. As announced earlier, the pedestrian version of the largest and most precise of Audi's TDIs will have 500 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque. Plenty enough to pull horse trailers on Sunday and chase the pool boy down the drive in a jealous, gin-and-tonic-induced rage on Monday.

I usually find the Q7 to be a rolling stain on Audi's usually lustrous badge. The V12 option seems to make up for the the rest of the horrid Q7s somehow. I guess 738 lb-ft of torque can do that to a guy.
