Gearing on 86 4000 quattro sedan

Why did they gear the 86 4000 quattro sedan so low? At 120 mph 
the revs are already well near 6000, and it would seem that it
wastes gas. I have an 84 non quattro coupe that I am selling,
and it has a similar 1st, 2nd, and third, but 4, and especially
5 on the coupe offer a lot more leway. I think it is at about
5000 rpm at 120 mph. 

Is there any simple mod to lower the highway revs in 5th gear?
