There has been much debate about older A7 models, S-Tronic/Tiptronic gearboxes and what engines they were featured in. My own Feb2013 3.0TDI 245ps had an 8-speed Tiptronic that some forum members thought was not possible in the UK! I have attached extracts from the A7 2012 and 2013 UK brochures below. Hopefully this will help those interested in buying older cars and what is available. Getting hold of one of these 245ps 8-Speed Tiptronics could be fairly rare but if you do find a car with this combination, it is an absolute joy with massive amount of torque. Even more than today's 55TFSI.
