According to the latest MT article pitting the RS6 vs. E55 (which the Rs6 wins by the way!), their tech article says it has 4 valves/cylinder. ???

I know Audi bought Cosworth but apparently a different department does the stuff for Ford or something. I heard a few things but I don't remember. Anyone know the story on this?

Ford gets the engine supply company for racing.
Audi gets the meat and potatoes of Cosworth by purchasing the engineering/technology part of Cosworth from Vickers in 1998.
Both outfits are quite remarkable in the business world.
www.cosworth.com is Ford.
Audi is cosworth-technology.co.uk
