Not really. Audi has 60/40 rear bias torque distribution, MB was always rear drive and has 70/30 rear bias torque distribution. Now that MB has alo gone to AWD with their high torque AMG line, I wonder what BMW will do. With these big torque numbers, AWD is a necessity to get the power properly to the ground in a front engine car. Interestingly, a whole new gen of light, agile RWD cars with moderate, useable power is emerging from Japan of all places, the traditional home of FWD.
