I actually recall, I'm 99% sure, that the sales brochure claimed 0-50
(yes 50) in 5.3 secs. Reason I think I remember this is back in '90 or
so when the DSM Talons etc were hot - I recall them being rated at about
5.9 secs 0-60- and I was all excited that my beloved turbo quattro coupe
as I called them back then was faster at 5.3 secs - til I realized that
was only 0-50....so that was a letdown...
So that is my 17 year old recollection....

I was just reading the July issue of Winding Road -- which I highly
recommend you download/subscribe to/ read online -- whatever. It's a
free webzine founded by David E. Davis. Anyhow, the editor there has
soft spot for Audi coupes and they tested the S5, so why not a
history of Audi coupes? I found one glaring error from the start
(page 55). The Urq, with it's 2974 lb curb weight and 160 hp would
make 0-60 in 5.3 seconds (must'a meant kilometers). Especially since
the 2862 lb Sortquattro with 306 hp on tap did 0-60 in 4.8 seconds :-
D He, he. Entertaining nonetheless.
