Sorry, I've waited a long time to do this....

BBBZZZZTTT!!!  According to AoA material, the A6 2.7T is getting the same
250hp motor as the S4.  I unfortunately read the figures wrong and was
comparing the 0-50 time of the S6 with the 0-60 time of the S4 (apples to
oranges).  Thanks to Pete we get the whole story.

It seems that regardless of the wieght difference, the A62.7T is only just a
tick off the 0-50 time of the S4!
