What a beast!! Imagine this motor in the next gen RS4/RS5 with a much lighter platform. If not the twin turbo 4.4 v8 how about a twin turbo 4.0 v8 like this one for the M3.

Engine is way under rated. Actual output is around 570hp. Couple that with AWD and 275 tires front and rear, and you will launch !!!!!

I drove one of these last month at an Audi event and believe me it feels every bit of a 3.5 second car. Like getting hit by a freight train, unreal thrust esp for such a large car. The same goes for the S6. Handling was shit but unbelievable power.

The launch control on these newer Audis are INSANE! Easy (you don't have to be doing so many things in the right order - just turn off stability control and brake+gas) and very harsh (in a good way).

My brother is a sales rep at Audi and he had an S8 to take to the monthly caffeine and octane meet and we were able to put 140 miles on it.

The thing absolutely rips. It is..sick fast, and so cool on the inside
