Where/when was the 90 20V ever published at 7.2 ?? That would be an
astounding time for that car. I have the 1991 Audi sales brochure and
the claimed 0-60 time for both the Coupe Q and the 90 20V is 8.1.
I certainly never thought that my 91 Coupe Q was doing it in less than
8 seconds. There was a 1991 R&T six car comparison test whcih included
the 90 20V and they recorded a 0-60 time MUCH slower than the Audi
claimed 8.1. I'll see if I can pull that article out tonight.
