5V first showed in the 1.8 4-cylinder A4 as far as I know. The 5V
was in the 1.8 before the V6, right?

Toyota sell a 1600cc 5V per cylinder here in South Africa, very
impressive but to me it feels like a copy of the A4 motor. 115 kW from a
1600cc street car NA is alright, isn't it? 207km/h max, 0-100km/h in
about 7 seconds. Just their basic RSi thing.
