Re: Why They Didn't Build the Avus (W engines exist)

Anyone remember the Vector W8 Twin Turbo?
Wasn't it a true W config, I would assume because of the name, but if I
recall the car was priced obnioxsiously high, like $350,000 USD.  I could be
mistaken about that.

P.M. Hall
'86 5000S
'90 V8q
'87 944s

P.S.  I find it confusing that Audi is goin to name the new "sport" A4 an S4
this will really confuse some, me, if people don't put years in front of the
car are they talking about an S4 from the 92-93 period based on the I5 turbo,
or the new S4 based on the 4 series.  I think a much better name would be an
A4S, but keep the names S6 and S8 since they haven't been used.  I wish Audi
would stick to 1 nameing system like Mercedes or BMW.  Just my .02.
