Audi’s Diesel V10 SUV Supercar Somehow Gets 30 MPG

• Wired.com
 It’s called the Audi Nanuk concept, and if you’ve ever wanted a high-riding diesel supercar, your prayers have been answered.

Debuting at this week’s Frankfurt Motor Show, Audi says the Nanuk concept combines the grippy driving dynamics of a mid-engine sports car with the functionality of an SUV. But with a 5.0-liter V10 mounted amidships, there’s no space for Fido and a carry-on.

While the race-derived V10 is only good for a paltry 544 horsepower, like all diesels, it’s about torque, and the Nanuk packs 738 pound-feet of the stuff. Combined with a specially tuned Quattro all-wheel-drive system and a 4,189-pound curb weight, Audi claims the lifted coupe is good for a 0-60 MPH run of 3.8 seconds and a top speed knocking on 190 MPH, all while returning over 30 miles per gallon.
