A standard Audi S4 delivers a total of 333 horsepower, but plenty of people think it has more potential. The guys over MS Design seem to agree with that and today they have unveiled the first official details on the new A46 package based for the S4. What does the name stand for? The answer is quite simple: from the amount of power found under the hood - 460 horsepower.
Thanks to the extra 127 horsepower, the A46 sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds - half a second faster than the S4 - and can hit a top speed of 178 mph. In order to handle the extra power, the new A46 has also been equipped with a specially adapted brake system, a height-adjustable sport suspension and a new set of 8.5-by-20-inch lightweight wheels.
The new Audi A46 can be ordered either as a complete car or as an upgrade for your standard S4. The model will make its world debut at the Top Marques Monaco set to begin tomorrow.

Our favorite Youtube user, Marchettino, has managed to delight us one more time by attending the 2012 edition of the Top Marques Monaco to film all of the amazing vehicles in attendance. We have to admit the list of supercars is quite impressive.
For those who don’t know, the Top Marques is an important supercar show that brings together some of the most expensive and exclusive supercars, hypercars, and tuning projects every year. It’s kind of like Christmas for us auto journalists, but without the big, jolly guy giving one of these supercars to us as a present. This kind of Christmas comes with huge prices and tremendous power backing it up.
Our favorite from the entire list of vehicles in attendance this year is the Koenigsegg Agera R, but the list is much, much longer.

The Top Marques Monaco isn’t just for luxury and super car automakers to display their newest creations; no, this event gets its fair share of tuning projects too. One project blindingly taking center stage in Monaco is this Audi R8 V10 by MTM. The German tuner took special care to prepare this sports car, S.W.A.T. style.
The Audi R8 V10 S.W.A.T Edition by MTM is based on the firm’s latest Biturbo version of the R8 that features a 5.0L V10 engine delivering an impressive 777 hp. This is just enough power to sprint the MTM R8 from 0 to 60 mph in 3.0 seconds, from 0 to 124 in 9.37 seconds, and allow it to hit a top speed of 217 mph. This special Audi R8 V10 S.W.A.T Edition features a 100% chrome wrap combined with a S.W.A.T theme. Considering S.W.A.T stands for Special Weapons and Tactics, we’re thinking the Audi could be the team’s special weapon.
Of course, it would be impractical to drive this thing to any emergency situation, but maybe it can be a gift for agent of the year or something along those lines. Either way, it is a shining example of what a tuner can accomplish when wanting a vehicle to stand out amongst the more grandoise vehicles at the Top Marques Monaco.
