If I were to describe to you a machine that had supercar performance, a mid-mounted engine and the ability to hit the rough stuff you might think I was describing a Group B rally car. You would be wrong. The more car news conscious of you might think I was talking about the bonkers ItalDesign Giugiaro Parcour built as a thing of fantasy by its designer. On that guess you would be getting much warmer, but still no cigar. No, this car that I speak of wears an Audi badge and is diesel!
Looking at the Audi Nanuk concept you can clearly see that Parcour influence and this is because Audi partnered up with its makers to produce this beast. Powered by a 5.0 litre V10 TDI, that is right it is diesel, the Nanuk can sprint from 0-62MPH in just 3.8 seconds on almost any terrain. Packing 544BHP and 737lb ft of torque it has a top speed of 189MPH. Now, that engine is the really interesting thing about this car as Audi have ben making plans for a diesel R8 for years. Have we just had a sneak preview?
