Not read the article, but that must be to do with the transfer box causing drag when turning and effecting MPG?

 

 

 

No, it is the emissions test cheat. Their software detects the turn of the steering wheel beyond 15 degrees which equates to actual driving in which case the defeat software is disabled. If the steering wheel isn't turned then they assume the car is on an emissions test bed and the defeat software comes into play.

But come on - Audi’s are at their best in a straight line?

 

they are famous for getting the tail out on rally stages. Well as much laryness as the Quattro system allows.  Not many straights in a rally.

Remember seeing them many times in the 80’s - much preferred the 038 Lancia’s though!
