There are A6 Q and A4Q in Europe with 2.5 L diesel TDI (Turbo with Direct
Injection)  5 cyl engines. Those are most likely the first quattros ever made
with diesel motor. The engine is excellent,  about 150 HP, with flat torque
curve. But, it (probably)  will never see (spoiled) North American market.
