Why would you compare a V12 petrol engine to a V8 diesel engine?? The A8 W12 will probably go as fast as the 760il.

VEry good car!!
Very beautiful and quite fast aswell.
Sure i don't think it will beat the 7-series like the 7 series owned the S-class in speeds beacause the 760li can go over 300km/h and for a big luxury sedan it's a hell of a fast car!!!

It undoubtedly a great car,we can say that even this early,and it doesn't even need that V12 TDi,maybe just for showoff...

What a terrible diesel engine

It is just as terrible as you are clever. I think this is the best large passenger car diesel in the world. It beats VW own 5.0 V10 TDi and beats Mercedes mighty 4.0 "420" CDI v8. Audi V12 TDi of course is more powerful but it's let down by price.
