Supreme Power in the New Audi S4

With a new design and a more extensive equipment specification, the top sports model in the A4 range, the S4 with supremely powerful 344 bhp V8 engine, is about to be launched. Its permanent quattro four-wheel drive and consistently sport-tuned aluminum suspension ensure that this power can be converted into maximum forward propulsion and driving pleasure. The new S4, like its predecessor, is available in both saloon and Avant versions.

The S models of the new A4 generation are likewise instantly recognizable: the front end is dominated by the new face of the brand, the single-frame grille - in this case with S-specific grid pattern - and newly styled headlights. The shoulder line sculpts the sides of the car body in a most eye-catching way. And, finally, the most prominent feature on the new tail end, apart from the newly styled light units, are four oval tailpipes on both saloon and Avant models - a clear indication of just what the Audi S4 is capable of.

The V8 engine, with chain drive at the rear and a displacement of 4.2 liters, delivers 344 bhp and 303 lb-ft of torque. It consequently sets clear benchmarks in its segment: a benchmark for a supreme and even development of power resulting from the large swept volume, and a benchmark for unmistakable dynamic handling.

The power-to-weight ratio of this model is just 4.8 kilograms/horsepower. The eight-cylinder engine's thrust thus enables the new Audi S4 with its new 6 speed manual gearbox to complete the sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just 5.6 seconds. It takes just 20.6 seconds to reach 125 mph, whilst its top speed is a governed 155 mph.

The new S4 is the only car in its class to have quattro permanent four-wheel drive. It can therefore convert its engine output into propulsive power most efficiently at all times and enter a new dimension of superiority thanks to the handling potential of its aluminum chassis.

Steering with an extremely direct ratio means that the S4 can be guided absolutely precisely around all kinds of corners. In other words, driving pleasure in the purest sense, on the motorway as well as on challenging mountain passes.

The Audi S4 also offers other qualities that have already become a well-known feature of the S models with the four-ring badge. It is consequently positioned as the top sports model in the A4 line, and not only in terms of power and performance - its equipment specification and materials of the highest quality underpin this status.

The S4 is also notable for its unique combination of unmistakable style and sporting exclusivity, of individuality and versatility. Available as both a saloon and an Avant, it offers its owner distinctive everyday quality, too.
