Audi Australia has expanded the 2011 A8 line-up this week with the addition of two diesel engines, one an entry-level 3.0 litre V6, and the other an upgraded version of the range-topping 4.2 litre V8.

The TDI diesel engines, along with the existing 4.2 litre FSI petrol V8, are available with both the 'regular' A8 and the long-wheelbase A8 L.

The 3.0 litre TDI V6 represents the entry point for Audi's flagship sedan, producing 184kW and 550Nm of torque between 1500 and 3000rpm - an increase of 13kW and 100Nm over its predecessor.

Fuel consumption for the diesel six is listed at 6.6 l/100km, a drop of 1.9 l/100km - while the 0-100km/h sprint is covered in 6.6 seconds.

The upgraded 4.2 litre TDI V8 produces 258kW and 800Nm of torque between 1750 and 2750rpm (up 18kW and 150Nm), covering the 0-100km/h run in 5.5 seconds.

Fuel consumption for the V8 is listed at 7.6 l/100km, shaving 1.8 l/100km from the figures of its predecessor.

The two engines join the A8's existing 4.2 litre FSI petrol V8, producing 273kW and 445Nm of torque, driving the big saloon to 100km/h in a claimed 5.7 seconds.
