Audiís new S4 will be unveiled for the first time in Australia in October at the Australian International Motor Show, ahead of its November 2005 launch.
The new S4 is instantly recognisable with its new front end dominated by the brandís formal design idiom, the single-frame grille, with the new S-exclusive grid pattern and newly styled headlights. The shoulder line sculpts the sides of the car with purpose and tension and the tail end, with its newly-styled light units, also features four oval tailpipes indicating the engineís enormous potential.
A more powerful rear bumper, fully painted to match the body colour, features large air inlets, while a discreet rear spoiler, xenon plus headlights and aluminium-look door mirrors all add to the S4ís subtle, yet individual appearance.
With a new design and a long list of exclusive standard equipment, the top sports model in the A4 range, the Audi S4, boasts a supremely powerful 4.2-litre V8 engine with 253kW of power and 410 Nm.
The eight-cylinder engineís thrust thus enables the new Audi S4 with its sporty 6-speed tiptronic gearbox to complete the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.8 seconds. It takes just 20.8 seconds to reach 200 km/h, and its top speed is governed to 250 km/h.
The new S4 is the only car in its class to have quattro permanent four-wheel drive. The benefits of this class-leading system means that engine output can be converted into propulsive power efficiently at all times, entering 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 precisely when cornering.
The 345 millimetre discs at the front are a visual indication of the brake systemís performance.
The Audi S4 offers outstanding technology, on-road dynamism, powerful yet subtle exterior design, and of course the highest quality interior to match.
The instrument cluster has the characteristic grey S dials and special needles. The new sports leather steering wheel features S badging and wheel-mounted shift paddles. Recaro sports seats provide firm lateral support and excellent comfort on long journeys.
The new Audi S4 will be on display at the 2005 Australian International Motor Show from 13th Ė 23rd October 2005.
