I have a chance to run Audi A8 (the latest model) with 4.0TDI engine.:)
Owner says it has 275BHP and 650NM which seems to be right for a stock car. He says that he wants to go from 10KPH up to 170KPH.

Do I have any chance at all? Should I accept his offer? Let me know what you think......if I accept I will post a video of our run.;)

You'll win.

I've not done the power to weight calc, but I'm pretty certain the A5 is better.

This run is done and the fact is that I am surprised, the question is whether in a good or in a bad way....I will post the video very soon, for now tell, what result would you expect?

Alejandro - I'm with Ianhp1 on this. Surely your A5 has a better power weight ratio. As long as your gearchanges and timing are ok you must win??

Looks about right to me... The 0-62 on a standard A8 4.0 TDI is 6.7s, so with your 'power box' to boot, I'm not suprised.

Such videos can't be left on the internet for too long as in my country people tend to report to police very often. Basically video was from 0 to 170KPH and I pulled 3-4 car lenghts on him by the end of video.

I was having same opinion until I one day saw a video of my friend on our local TV......I don't need to say that he had his license suspended for 2 years and huge fine. He was driving Gallardo fast and had a video on YouTube.

I am not paranoic, I am just careful.
