Firstly, the stuff i got said the same thing, but it makes absolutely no 
sense.  I think it was a typo, i looked at the 0-30 and then the 0-60 and 
it was just slightly slower than the S4.  This isnt actually the S6.  
This is just a midrange between the base A6 and the A6 4.2

liters...hehe...that one will be fun...
