Wink Audi A6 4,2 vs 911 3,2...

At a set of traffic lights, I sat next to a 05 Audi A6 4,2 Q sedan today
It was a deserted road with great visibility.
Light turns green, and the 911 pulls ahead on 1st gear. 2nd gear and I still pull slowly but surely away from him. 100-120-140 160 klms/h, 4th gear, and I am 2 car lengths ahead of him at 180 klms as we both slow down. He waved positeively on my at the next set of lights.
I know that the Audi is quite heavy, but it also has 335 healthy bhp against my (sometime ago...) 231bhp. My car is a 78SC with a 87 Euro engine. Has covered 125k miles (203k kilometers). What should be the 1/4 mile run on the Audi ?


That felt nice so i had to post it

You have to acccount for the driver too. It depends on if he was pushing it and or shifting properly vs. your driving style. Its hard to compare because the driver is a huge factor. I think its definitely possible. Since its an 05 Audi, you should be able to find the stats on their website.
