That wasn't 100% the exact quote, but I remember reading posts about this, does anyone have any more information?

Did they do this for both Manual and A8 transmissions? Curious to know how well the cars did.

I found the article:

It was driven at VIR, not sure if Auto or manual tho. They also beat the Ford GT time by accident.

That's correct. Jim Mero was the driver. He did it with the automatic in drive and the PTM in Mode 5.
