I think a direct injection turbo diesel V8 is as awesome as it gets and I would prefer it over far more powerful petrol v8 turbo.

But, in my opinion, powerful diesel engines are not for acceleration times. They are rather for effortless fast cruising and pretty damn sweet roll on acceleration when you need it.
