    Sixth Gear, 1850 RPMs, 52 MPH, only in a TT?

    Just goofing off today and stuck the TT in sixth, kept on a level flat highway and cruised at 52mph with 1850 rpms.

    The car has plenty of Tq to accelerate, there's no lugging.

    I _guess_ that's how we get the maximum MPG with such high output engines?

    try Z06, it's even lower...

    Snick it down a gear and you'll be in the sweet spot for afterburner application. Screw the gas mileage! This car is all about pinning your butt to the firewall.

    LOL. Right you are!

    What's really nice about it? You can drive it all day like a VW beetle in traffic and then when it thins out, gets clean and green you can blast out of orbit.
