Default From Automobile:

"Except for the badging and the low redline, there are simply no clues that anything but a gasoline engine is under the hood. The V-10 starts immediately, idles silently, and when pressed sounds exactly like a gasoline V-8 with a low redline. This is perhaps the V-10s greatest asset and what would make it viable in the U.S.-there is simply no aural indication that this is anything but a gasoline engine.

Typical of diesels, the V-10 comes in with a staggering torque figure. Coupled with an excellent six-speed automatic, 550 pound-feet of torque is ready to move the over two-and-a-half ton Phaeton smartly at any speed. Although the gasoline 4.2-liter V-8 and even the 6.0-liter W-12 make more than the diesel's 313 horsepower, they cannot touch the effortless neck-snapping torque. Volkswagen quotes a top speed of 155 mph and despite the cholesterol-like traffic on our way to Dresden, an indicated 155-mph came easily and quickly. The four-hour high-speed cruise from Frankfurt to Dresden returned a trip average just over 22 mpg--not bad for a vehicle that weighs as much as a Chevrolet Tahoe."

Thanks. Is that the whole article? I'd like to know the tow rating.
