Nothing truly exhilarating ever really happens in a few seconds — until now. The new 2013 Audi S6 accelerates from 0-60 in a mere 3.7 seconds and was recently ranked “The World’s Best Sedan” by Car and Driver over the M5 and E63. Warning: Your adrenalin may rise as fast as the speedometer.
There are a lot of things slower than an S6. Car and Driver recently clocked it running to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and named it the World’s Best Sedan—ahead of the BMW M5 & Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG. What are some other things slower than our new Audi S6? Autoweek.com

When the foundations were laid for the construction of the BMW 328 in the early 1930s, the car‘s creators Rudolf Schleicher and Fritz Fiedler had little idea of the significance the sporty two-seater would one day attain. Several decades on, this Roadster, with its powerful 2-litre six-cylinder motor, is still lauded as the most beautiful and successful sports car of its time. Schleicher and Fiedler made the ideal engineering team for such a project. In addition to their deep knowledge in many areas of automotive construction, the two men could call on many years of experience, a wealth of ideas and, above all, ambition. They complemented each other perfectly, the engine specialist Schleicher blending his talents with Fiedler’s expertise in vehicle construction to outstanding effect.
In the BMW 328 they developed a refined sports car, whose qualities would provide one of the pillars for further developments over the decades that followed. The cars wheeled out for those successful early races were in fact prototype versions developed in the simplest of surroundings. Nowadays the creation of a new car evolves as part of a process costing millions and is drawn out over several years. It includes the contributions of hundreds of engineers and designers working under the strictest secrecy in development centres and design studios. By extreme contrast, the BMW 328 was put together in double-quick time with minimal use of materials and manpower. When Mssrs Schleicher and Fiedler conceived the BMW 328, there was no such thing as market research, a design department or a wind tunnel at BMW, never mind the electronic tools their counterparts take for granted today.
Our project was to use music that was 3 to 5 minutes long and create an animation to go with the music. This involved going into Soundbooth and editing the song in just the right way to get the perfect selection. I used Andrew Bird’s music called Something Sinister. He created this sound for a childrens book that his mother was illustrating. This Flash animation has 4 main scenes and in the first scene the girl is playing the violin and the ginko leaves are twirling with the music. It fades into the next scene where the girl is still playing as a fox lurks behind the trees looking at a Bobwhite.
The scene changes leaving the girl behind and the fox is now chasing the Bobwhite through the forest trying to catch his supper. The last scene shows the bird under the foxes foot as his face fades from normal into a sinister looking skull. The last scene fades to black with THE END and a REPLAY button to start the process all over again.
