The facelift version of the Audi A4 is on sale in Europe and will go on sale in the USA in the summer of 2012. In this short time, the model has already received a number of significant upgrades, but German tuner, ABT Sportsline, is adding another one to the faster version of the A4, the S4. Their package, called the AS4, includes a series of exterior upgrades and some serious engine boosts to allow the A4 to excel.

The exterior changes were made to improve the car’s aerodynamics and were kept to a minimum. These changes include a new air dam, new side sills and wing inserts, aerofoils, rear apron inserts, a two-pipe exhaust system, and, of course, a new set of alloy wheels.

Under the hoods of the different versions of the A4, the most impressive changes were made for the S4. The Audi S4’s 3.0 L TFSI V6 engine was pumped up to 435 HP from the standard 333 HP. The top speed limiter has also been removed, providing the luxury sedan with a top speed of 175 mph, while the 0 to 60 mph sprint is made in 4.8 seconds. The 3.0 TDI engine has also been increased from 245 HP to 282 HP, while the tiny four-cylinder version, the 2.0 TFSI, goes from 211 HP to 275 HP.

I don’t know which actually is the main attraction here; the looks have been more striking; the engine has been more powerful; and the features have added aerodynamics.

ABT captured the people’s craving for more style, performance, and additional tweaks that’s why they have applied only the best to this modified A4/S4.

ABT is aware that consumers would be looking for additional features on every aspect. It’s great that they’ve appended style, performance, and aerodynamics to this one.

The upgrade to empower aerodynamics is brilliant. And of course, Audi is wise enough to know it wouldn’t sell if only stuffs under the hood went under through modification that’s why they added more striking external improvements.

I looks like Audi is really into this Audi A4. It’s numerous upgrades a proof of it. Maybe they are earning a lot from it.

The exterior design seems to be appealing on the way it looks. It has the road presence for today’s generation. It’s more plain on paint but aggressive on style.

It’s nice to have that seconds in sprinting to 60mph. Even if it’s 175mph, it’s still fast. It must have the stronger seat belt and airbag in the steering wheel.

I’m not contented with the results of facelift, but the engine upgrades are so good. The maximum speed is 175mph. I’m happy with this speed. smiley

ABT is collaborating well with Audi. This Audi A4 or also known as AS4 gone through drastic changes, most of it in the exterior. the Top speed limiter had removed and now the top speed is ranging up to whooping 175mph.
