S4 or Bora VR8?

I just read about some serious competition for the new S4, M3, C43, and 
the like.  The Bora (read Jetta) VR8 Volkswagen is testing.  Either a 
3.7 or 4.2L VR8, 270 and 300 hp respectively, same sizes as the A8 
engines, but a totally different engine, I assume a similar narrow angle 
"V" as in the VR6. Oh, and it's all-wheel drive.  Supposed to be at the 
Frankfurt show in Sept. and launched next spring (read 18-24 months form 
now). Source: Automotive News, March 29,1999
