Audi news

Hi all,

This week's Dutch AutoWeek reviews the first V6 2.5TDI, in the A8. It's
considered to be about the perfect engine for this car, being quick (9.9s
0-60mph), quiet and torquey. The Tiptronic disappointed, but the 6-spd
manual was considered to be very good.

Audi's going to introduce a lot of new cars this year. First there's
(probably) a slightly revised A8, and the A8 TDI mentioned earlier. The end
of October will see the introduction of the S4 and S4 Avant, and the S3 is
rumoured to come out at the same time, along with the 5-door A3. In
December we'll see the new A6 Avant.

Remember, all these are European launch dates. No furter announcements
about the rest of the world...

           Now I see that I should have been more specific.
