As some of you know, I have a real fondness for performance VW/Audi.

Today, I purchased an Audi A6 Avant. The car has 230bhp, 6 speed motorsport bred transmission and of course quattro 4wd. Torque comes in at over 320Nm.

All I can say is wow, what a car! The performance is simply mind-blowing as is the un-frugal 20mpg.

For the 1st time in a very, very long time I am depressed at the thought that this car will be sold before long.

If you get a chance, drive one, it will be the experience of a lifetime. Porsche performance for Mondeo money.

What is it...a 2.7 6 cylinder turbo? must be quite something.
Still reckon if you're only going to get 20 mpg, might as well go for a V8! I'm presuming you've bought it to sell on.....hope you got a good deal.....

2.2 Straight 5 with a honking huge turbo.

BTW the torque is 350.

0-60 in 6.6 seconds.

Going to sell it on Dave once it is prepared and I have enjoyed it for a couple of weeks, will be a wrench though.

Picture will be posted once prepared.

Oh yes, the old 2.2 5 cylinder....as for the models K,L,M ish?

i.i.r.c. the Volvo T5 had a 5 cylinder turbo.....dad and I burned a few boy racers off with this!

I've never been into Audi....don't know why, I think my experience of trying a few coupes (1980s) put me off. Having said all this, even the old ones look good still, thanks to the galvanised panels.....as do some Porsches.

Huge brakes all round Nico, the suspension is a little twitchy for my tastes under extreme driving but then it is a heavy car.

Reckon your CLK would do me after the initial drag Nico, mind you, this baby has enough juice to spin all 4 wheels off the lights when absolutely booting it in 1st gear.

Cant wait to take her out today again, I think I will loiter at traffic lights awaiting the arrival of morons in corsa's etc and then onto the kiddies in jap-crap!

Must get it onto a track before I sell it.
