    With, or without turbos?

    Re: Any news on the new RS4?

    I could actually imagine that they will go the above mentioned way.

    Reasons?

    The new 4.2-V8 in the S4 is a derivative of the new V-engine lineup, just as the Gallardo's V10! The later also provides its power at high RPMs - the reason Audi/VW hasn't gone this path before might be due to one single fact - all previous V8s were beltdriven, the new generation is driven by chains and more disposed for high revolutions!

    Funny that all major manufacturers go a similiar route, norm. aspirated V8 engines with more or less high displacement!

    The old RS4 was available with a special Quattro GmbH suspension kit that improved handling and laptimes significantly! I hope that Audi will go a similiar route on the new RS4!

    Greetings!

    Re: Any news on the new RS4?

    Other sources said 4.2 litres twin turbo 450cv!!!!

    Re: Any news on the new RS4?

    The autobild claims 440hp...let's see how it turns out

    Re: Any news on the new RS4?

    The car looks just fantastic!!
    And this is what i read about the engine:
    425Hp, 4.2 V8 FSI motor (Also testing an engine with 450Hp at 9000RPM)
    It should do 0-200 Km/h in 15 sec
    A lap at the Nordschleife has taken less then 8 min.

    I really really really doubt that, given the traditional overweight of the RS4's, their understeering torsen Quattro, chasis dinamics, brakes, etc. the ring is not their best place. The equally powered 996TT did 7:56 and the 570HP Murcielago which should have a similar weight to the RS4 did 7:52.
    We will see when Sport Auto gets a hold of it but if it gets 8:20 in the ring with street tires it would still be quite a feat, dropping 5 secs over the previous RS4 and matching the more powerful RS6.

    Those camo pics make the car look
    really agressive

    Perhaps is a ABT AS4 in the photo, look the license plate KE Kempten
    Audi has been busy developing the RS4 for quite a while now and they have recently begun with heavy Nordschleife testing.
    The RS4 from the pictures is equipted with a 425hp 'non-turbo' 4.2 V8 FSI engine. They are also testing a version that produces 450hp @ 9000 Rpm.
    It does 0-200kph in 15 seconds and a round of Nordschleife should be done in less than 8 minutes.
    -They are also testing a 7-speed tiptronic (DSG?) gearbox.
    -Audi has also been busy with weightreduction and the new RS4 has e.g. an aluminium hood, doors, bootlid and front-mudguards.
    The new RS4 should be presented in January 2005 at the Detroit Motor Show and otherwise on the 2005 Geneva motor show."

    I think it doesn't make sence that the 4.2L FSI V8 atmosferic engine has 425Hp and the Turbo 4.2L FSI V8 Turbo engine makes only 25Hp more
