Audi never was alone on the I-5 route. Since the late '70 Daimler-Benz
builds a 300D, which is a modifed 240D (4cyl) with just an added 5th
Merc naming convention 300=3 ltr 5 cyl (=.6ltr per cyl)
                       240=2.4 ltr 4 cyl (=.6ltr per cyl)
                       D stands for diesel
Mercedes later also added a turbo version.
