You just have to  s t r e t c h  your imagination a bit.
The V6 30V is a development of the V6 12V which is derived from
the V8 which is derived from the VW I4 and that shares the same
basic components and design as the Audi I5...  Pretty "race-inspired"
to me :-)

96 A4 2.8 quattro
84 5000S 2.1 turbo
