2010 Audi S4

October 29th, 2008 Comments off

audis4 I was excited to see the initial reports that Audi would go back to forced induction on the S4.  Having had a V8 S4 I can attest to the fact that it was heavy and bulky, but boy do I miss the sweet sound of the V8 burbling thru my Milltek exhaust.  It looks like Audi is moving towards a slightly lighter car with the supercharged V6.  But one thing they haven’t changed (according to Car and Driver) is the barely distinguished look between the A4 and the S4.  That’s a strong negative for me, I’d like to see some more major visual differences between the two.  I’m sure the forthcoming RS4 will be a bit more differentiated but Audi is much more reserved than BMW when it comes to visual differentiation with the motorsport cars.

The new S4 is still pretty good looking, can’t wait to see one in person next year.

Mercedes ML63 AMG

It’s a sad day when a Mercedes SUV runs faster than an Audi RS4 Avant.  Who knows if the RS4 guys is a good driver or not, but he got schooled by the ML63 which had three passengers in it.  Ah well . . .

Ummm forget the M3, now I want an RS5

May 12th, 2007 3 comments

I forgot to mention that I test drove an Audi RS4 a few weeks back, easily the most entertaining car I’ve driven in a long time. The power of the engine was beyond description and unlike most Audi’s it felt nimble on it’s feet, or tires as it were. I loved the feel of the gearbox and after pressing the “S” button, the sound of the engine at full throttle with the exhaust opened up was a thrill.

So when I read about the RS5 on Autoblog (via Car Magazine) I was really intrigued! If Audi can do what they did with the RS4, I imagine the RS5 is going to be an amazing machine and potentially more desirable than an M3 (to me).
