I'm a little tired, and should probally get my ducks in a row before I make this post, but we can fill in the blanks and links later. Here are a few "milestones" I can think of. Best-selling car of all time, "Rabitt" aka Audi 40. Multitude of current World Speed Records, endurance etc. as of 2003 at Nuremburgring. 10+ years World record at Pikes Peak. World Record for MPG in a full-sized car, Aluminum-bodied 5000w/ turbine engine, 200mpg, Coast-to-Coast on 1 tank. DTM Champions, current and recent. Speed GT Manufactures' Championship 1st aluminum mass-production car, A8. 1st AWD production car. 1st with fully gavanized body panels. 1st with inclusive service. 4 (or 5?) years running Lemans 24-hour Endurance Race Champions, a record in itself. 1st-2nd-3rd (Lemans is the LARGEST SPORTS EVENT IN THE WORLD) Cadillac struggled to finish 23rd-ish with a multi-billion $ budget. Only import marquee to compete and win in NASCAR before AWD was banned. (Penskee/Stuck) Also, the advanced-geometry engines and mettalurgy read like something from Star Trek. Yawn. Let's not mention that V2 internal guidence thingy.
