450 hp for the Audi RS4
Few months ago there were rumors that the Audi RS4 will be discontinued and replaced by the RS6. In the end, it turn to be just a false rumor. Audi will present a redesigned RS4 sometime in 2008, after the next A4 will be unveiled.
The 2008 RS4 will be powered by a more powerful engine with an output of 450 hp. This means a very big challenge for the 420 hp of the BMW M3 and the C63 AMG.
Until the new RS4 will be unveiled, Audi will bring a convertible version on the US market limited to only 300 units. It will be powered by a 420-horse/317-pound-foot 4.2-liter FSI V-8 engine mated with a six-speed manual gearbox.
