Audi, for one reason or another, has been known for publishing
conservative performance numbers.  I'm guessing it's due to some tax
implication in Europe.

I wonder about a 0-100 run.  Either way, I think the V8ers would take
the "cool down" since there's no wastegate to expel unused ale to
contend with...
