    New A5: 3.0 TDI can smoke a CTS!

    Sorry guys, but the new A5 turbo diesel can smoke the current CTS. It has a 5,9 on the 0-60. How about that?

    I see some people are intimidated? The A5 is about the same size as the CTS and only 200 pounds lighter. IMO it is the first turbo diesel that I know of that can put that diesel torque into serious speed.

    You are still more than .1 short Nick. Plus the 5,9 is for 0-100 km/h and that is 62.1 Mph. Hehe
    Plus it is the listed time, so you could improve that in reality.

    VERY impressive! And I don't know much, so I wrote 'that I know of' Thanks for the enlightment

    It is modded though and the A5 comes like that. Imagine modding the A5.


    Oh, before you think I am all pro-Audi; forget it! But I was imtimidated!
    Same thing when I was passed by an Audi S6 combi with V10...
