Those figures could be true. Looking through the 7/8/1991 issue of AutoWeek
I see a 0-60 test run done by the V8 5 speed in 6.7 seconds, and I see a
statement that Audi's speed claims are conservative. I imagine that if the
V8 times are conservative then the 200q20v are also pretty conservative.

What we need is a run off between the V8 and 200q20v listers and then a cool
down with various brewskis to see what the fastest times are. My gut feeling
is that the 200q20v will snatch the 0-60 since they're lighter but the V8
guys will capture the cool down since they're usually older and with bigger
capacities for good ale...:-)
