Slowest car ever round the Top Gear track?!?
Re: Why didnt audi gear it so you could do 60 in 2nd?
My ZX-6R will do over 60 in 1st!
TBH, the only reason manufacturers feck about with the gearing on cars so they'll do 60 in second is to get decent 0-60 stats out of otherwise mediocre cars. 0-60 stats are worth sod all, especially if the driveability of the car's been compromised by dodgy gearing. Hence a lot of Pugs & Renaults look good on paper but aren't that fast in real life.
My 2 penneth!
