RE: No Audi content, but interesting ovloV deal

       Also, I have heard some aquisations that Volvo basically copied Audi's
20V I-5 design for the 850R.  I don't know how much truth there is to it, but I
find it kinda odd how the Volvo I-5 is 2.3 liters, and the hosepower and torque
are very close.  The layout is also very simmilar with the exception that the
Volvo's engine is horizontally mounted while the Audi's are longitudal.  The on
ly thing I wonder is, what kind of turbo does the 850 have?  Well, looks like
they took a great desighn and ran with it, and once again, Audi gets's no publi
city/credit.  NJTH.

  Sure, Audi gets the credit and very publicly, imitation being the sincerest form of flattery.....
