2009 Audi S4 - New S4 Gets Supercharged V6 - Web Exclusive

Post by LhYnxz on Wed Oct 01, 2008 8:06 pm

A 3-liter V6 with direct fuel injection and an intercooled supercharger



The
new S4 will receive a potent 333hp, 324.5 ft-lb 3.0L V6 with direct
fuel injection and an intercooled supercharger. The factory claims it
will accelerate from 0 to 62mph in 5.1sec and achieve 24.25 mpg. Of
course, it wouldn't be an Audi without its Quattro permanent all-wheel
drive system (40/60 split), plus the addition of sport suspension for
great off-the-lot handling. Transmission options will include a
seven-speed S tronic or six-speed manual. There's also an option for a
sport differential which is said to distribute the torque effectively
between the rear wheels.With performance this impressive, Audi hopes to
compete with the BMW M3 sedan and Mercedes C63 AMG.

After
ditching the 2.7L V6 twin-turbocharged Audi S4 in '03 for a 4.2L V8,
Audi is finally returning to forced induction for next year's new S4
and S4 Avant. The 2.7T was known to be one of the most tunable motors
in the European market as shown by high-horsepower examples like the
eurotuner GP champions of '06 and '07.The interior and exterior
design has slightly changed from the previous generation S4. New front
and rear bumpers offer a unique look, along with a new trunk lid with
incorporated spoiler, rear LED lighting, aluminum mirrors and 18"
wheels. The calipers feature S4 logos while the sport seats will have
unique color offerings to set it apart from the competition. S4 accents
continue into the steering wheel, door sills, key fob and gauge
cluster. An aggressive quad exhaust design completes the new look. \As
far as chassis work, the new S4 will be using the latest technology and
materials available to create a secure vehicle. New high-strength
steels are used throughout which are stronger and lighter than previous
generations. A repositioned clutch and torque converter also allows
more forward position of the front axle which will give the S4 a longer
wheelbase helping with handling, comfort and load distribution.

Other
new features include the Audi Drive Select which allows the driver to
vary the engine, transmission, steering and suspension dampening
characteristics with the touch of a button. So you can adjust the
comfort levels for your drive to work, but let the car open up when
you're alone in the canyons.New electronics are also standard
such as an intelligent key which stores service information in the key.
There's also a self-opening trunk lid, Bluetooth hands-free telephone
interface, Bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, Bang
& Olufsen 14-speaker sound system and lane change assist.European
markets will start seeing both the sedan and Avant next year but the US
won't be as fortunate. We'll have to wait till the autumn of '09 until
we start seeing the '10 model hit dealerships - and that's only in the
sedan. The Avant is not scheduled for US sale yet but keep your fingers
crossed.
