    ” but we do have some details on the A8 TDI – 0 to 60 mph for the Audi A8 TDI comes in 3.4 seconds with estimated fuel-economy figures coming in at 24/36 mpg (city/highway)”

    3.4 seconds 0-60 in an A8 with a 240hp diesel? I’m guessing there’s a correction coming. Either that or the A6 with the same engine is so fast 0-60 it affects the rotation of the earth.
