Of course, thats 2 cylinders in an aluminum block! I would be willing to
wager that the 8cyl long block is lighter than the cast-iron 2.7tt block.
I am equally disgusted about the recent weight gain in the Audi model line.
My 100LS weighs 2100lbs and the CQ, I am shooting for 3000 even but we'll
Audi has become a luxury car company! I mean, they used to have a blend
between luxury and sportiness, but now I think they have thrown big hp
numbers at a luxury sedan and called it a sport sedan
Just my $.02
