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 litres, delivers 344 bhp and 410 Nm of torque. It consequently sets benchmarks in its segment: a benchmark for a supreme and even development of power resulting from the large swept volume, and a benchmark for unmistakeable 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 Audi S4 with its new 6 speed manual gearbox to complete the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.6 seconds. It takes just 20.6 seconds to reach 200 km/h, whilst its top speed is a governed 250 km/h.

The 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 aluminium 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 unmistakeable style and sporting exclusivity, of individuality and versatility. Available as both a saloon and an Avant, it offers its owner distinctive everyday quality, too.
