Porsche stops Diesel-sale: BMW 750d back to the top

The most powerful luxury sedan with Diesel power to ascend, sometimes no increase in power use: The BMW 750d xDrive has the title practically without a fight conquered, because Porsche has with views of the persistent problems with the cleaning of exhaust gases of Audi supplied engines apparently decided, on the sale of vehicles with a Diesel engine for the time being, completely to abandon. This applies not only to Macan and Cayenne, the Porsche Panamera Diesel will not be offered any longer.

There is also the Audi A8, 400 d, 50 TDI and Mercedes S far from the performance data and the Performance of the BMW 7 series with Quad turbo-Diesel is removed, the BMW 750d xDrive is the sovereign of the crown under the Diesel flagships. So far, the 400-HP, Bayer had to settle just behind the Porsche Panamera 4S Diesel with a V8-Biturbo, this was with 422 HP and 850 Newton-metres of torque, the most powerful Diesel offering in the Segment.

With the ability to accelerate in 4.6 seconds from a standstill to 100 km/h, the BMW 750d xDrive is currently out of competition – if one leaves out that the BMW 750Ld xDrive long-wheelbase only a tenth of a second slower. The fastest Mercedes S-class with a Diesel engine of the S 400 d – after all, the strongest ever in the series-built Mercedes-Pkw-Diesel, but with 340 HP far from the 750d. This is also the Sprint from 0 to 100 km/h, because here the Swabian needed according to factory specification 5.2 to 5.4 seconds, and putting it on a par with the BMW 740d / 740ld to xDrive.

Whether the new Audi A8 D5 returns one day with a powerful V8 Diesel, is currently in the stars. After Porsche has apparently capitulated, looks set to be Audi with a corresponding offer on intensive investigations. At least for the foreseeable future there is likely to be from Ingolstadt is no real opponent for the BMW 750d and 750Ld.
