2009 Audi S4

Paris 2008 Debut Expected

Audi-fest. That’s what it should be called. For here’s a company that only 15 years ago no one knew if it would be coming or going. Seems it’s coming now, and coming pretty fast on your rear view mirrors! Much like the new blazing Audi S4, which we have already reported as a 3.0-litre V6 with a supercharged system that offers driver the sure pleasure of 350bhp or so. Quattro will bear the traction responsibilities as expected, where a quick run to 100km/h should take just less than 6 seconds, while top whack will be limited at 250km/h. Yeah right, this is Audi we’re talking about, so-called "gentlemen’s agreements' are tossed out as fast as an R8 V10 tosses around a track.

Where was I? Oh yeah, gearbox. 2009 S4 will sport the brand new twin-clutch changer found in the new S5 which Audi fancily refers to as S-Tronic rather than what big brother VW calls it; DSG. Same thing. Except S-Tronic changes at 200ms under S4 guidance, weighs 40kg more than the 6-speed changer but yet performs faster and is C02 cleaner as well. Amazing stuff.

Dear S4. As has been promised, we will see you at the Paris Motor Show later in the year, hopefully with hints of your avant and cabriolet present too. Don’t forget also that 2009 is promised to give us your mentor RS 4, so we await that monumental event as well.

Audi is a wannabe car , you can never compare a audi with a merc or bmw .the merc and bmw are far superior cars.

I think this is just a standard a4 with S line body kit. I cant see any S4 badging at the front. White colour suits very nicely. I think the normal A4 looks hot already.

What does everyone think the best transmission choice will be? I've decided to learn how to drive manual recently and it is very fun, but that DSG system looks cool too. Its a hard choice seeing as I live in the city where manuals are usually not as practical. I wonder if the S4 will have hill hold assist like in the S5. Hill starts are crap.

200ms? Wow, that's fast! In 2003... The Audi S-Tronic can shift as quickly as 8ms! 200ms? Please, that's Ferrari territory. And what's so "brand-new" about S-Tronic? It was originally unveiled in the US in the A3 for Audi about 3 years ago. Oh, and the S5? Yeah, it's got the automatic Tiptronic, not the DSG S-Tronic. I love you guys, but sometimes I really wonder how much you guys know your cars, or even do any research. Oh, and that's an A4 S-Line. The S4 will look different, as all S models look compared to the S-Lines (take a look at the A6/S6, TT/TT-S, etc.).

Isn't this an A4 with 'S' rims? On the S5 at least you can spot the difference. The S4 i'm afraid is understated. Maybe they should have released the A4 and S4 before the A5 and S5.
