New A6 Info
Fellow Audians: One interesting technological tid-bit from the German
Audi page regarding the new A6 --
"The well-proved 1.8 litre four-cylinder TDI is more sporty in
character. It packs a 110 kW punch (150 bhp) and, like the petrol
driven V6, profits from the advantages of the five valve mechanism:
high power efficiency, smooth torque characteristic, low fuel
consumption and exhaust emission. Its spectacular torque curve offers
a constant of 210 Nm in an engine speed range of 1,750 to 4,600 rpm."
A five-valve per cylinder diesel that's making almost the same power
as its 1.8 litre gas brother! I wonder if we will ever see one in the
states? In an A4 Avant? I'd actually like to try it. I don't know why,
but I've always had a certain fascination for diesels.
