When we were down at Mt Baker last month, we met a couple pulling a mid size Airstream (~6000 lbs) with a Ram Cummins. We got into the usual discussion about tow vehicles as we were pulling our trailer with the Beetle to everyones amazement.

They said that this truck was new because their brand new Eco diesel blew up on the their first trip and was replaced with a Cummins equipped truck.

The CVT Nismo RS has a top speed of 200 kph, the manual 220 kph.

Here's a 0-230 acceleration run of a 3.0 TDI Audi with the CVT:
