Those are some very nice benefits to the new motor. Not to mention the fact it is much more easily tuned than the old V8 with big gains to be had with just software alone.

So, at 3895 pounds it is capable of hustling to 60 in 4.8 seconds and through the 1/4 mile in 13.4@106. And that is for the 6-speed manual version. The S-Tronic dual clutch will be a little quicker as a recent comparison test of the manual and dual clutch gearbox with this motor shows.
Overall, Audi simply continues to impress and continues to improve their cars. Keep it up Audi and you most certainly will deserve to overtake BMW as the number one luxury automaker.
