The Audi S4 is a sport version of the German automaker’s entry level sedan powered by a 2.7 Liter Biturbo V6 that sent 251 HP and 258 lb-ft of torque through a Quattro all wheel drive system in 1997. In 2003 the S4 was redesigned with a few new bloated body lines and Audi placed a 4.2 Liter V8 making 339 HP and 302 lb-ft of torque under the hood that would accelerate the four door from 0 to 60 MPH in under 5 seconds. In 2005 the S4 became a bit more curvaceous but retained the same power plant. The latest generation S4 went on sale in 2008 and is powered by a smaller supercharged V6 that produces a more efficient 333 HP and can get to 60 MPH in 4.9 seconds.
