Do you think AWD cars have an acceleration advantage?

In real life, the added traction provided by having four wheels propelling the car rather than two will help and All Wheel Drive car to accelerate considerably better than a similar Rear or Front Wheel Drive vehicle.

Simulation racers, such as Forza Motorsport 2, emulate this quite well.

Now I always thought that the Lambo Gallardo, which is AWD in real life, accelerated a bit better than the cars near it (Corvette, Ford GT, Porsche Carrera) but it was never really different enough to prove anything.

Now I see a very significant difference, and I'm wondering: has anyone else noticed the same thing in this game? I was never too sure if this game was realistic enough for that.

BTW: AWD cars in this game: Gallardo, Audi TT, Lancer, Subaru WRX. Correct me if I missed one, I think that's all.

Maybe I should do a scientific test. But that would involve effort . . . . . . .
