Car magazine (or something else, I forget...) says not only Audi is
debuting the S6 in the coming car show (where?), but also the A8 with
the W12. The W12 is rumored to hustle the A8 to 62mph in under 5 seconds.

Now, somewhere in that article, it also mentions VW is also going to get
that W12, but also W8 (typo?), a 3.2-liter V6, and 5.0-liter V10 -- all
fitted with Audi quattro mechanical, rebadged to 4-Motion for marketing.

Oh, the big Jetta will not be using Audi's aluminium ASF, but
iron-equivalent of it. Hmmm...
