Hence my words, 'albeit in a smaller scale'.

In the grand scheme of things though, it's just a 5 seater car like the A2 (though some A2s were only 4 Seater) so in the terms of the number of human beings it can move from A to B it's actual identical in function. In that sense Audi did indeed already do it nearly 2 decades ago with the A2.

Audi A2 3l all were only 4 seaters if I have read things right. So its not a same thing at all as the A8 D2.

- Common thing is that any can reach 3 liter fuel consumption figures easily if designed for efficiency. And much lower if you don`t drive 100 km/h speeds.
- Both cars can also relatively fast at the same time (Audi A2 or Lupo 3L were slow as hell) but they could be fast at the same time if needed.

This summer my A8 1.2TDI will show how fast it can be with this small 1.2 TDI engine.
Also the fuel consumption will go down as new parts are coming.
