0-60 in 3.7 will embarrass 99% of cars, lol. Gotta love Quattro.
Just imagine what the RS6/RS7 is going to do.
I suspect the skidpad numbers are much less than the regular A6 due to them not having the best test surface wherever they were testing in Europe.

Also interesting the S6 and Boss 302 have the same EPA fuel economy.
I have to stop this idiot from deminishing my credibility every time he posts because my usernsme is in his sig.
5000rpm!!!! Can't do that with a regular auto.TEST NOTES: Launch control is activated in D sport with ESC off. Just stomp the gas with the brake and it zings to 5000 rpm, lift and it moves out.
More impressive is the fuel economy for the capacities of the car.
