    A6 just died

    Hey all, my a6 just died. Was giving it a bit round a bit of a corner, coming out of the corner and back on the straight the car began to rev up and down between 2-4k although my foot didn't move from the accelerator. Was still changing gears but accelerator wouldn't work, then it conked out and stalled, so I rolled it in neutral to a stop.
    This happened at around 35mph ish.
    Petrol is on the first red line so still on 1/8 petrol, so shouldn't be that?
    Any ideas anyone? Thanks
