“Holy Crap,” is the most family-friendly version of what was said inside the S4. The Camaro was fun to drive, but the S4 was out of this world. I purposely tried to force the S4 into a tire squealing turn again and again (within the legal limits), and couldn’t hear a peep from the tires. With 18,000 miles on it, the S4 was a total dream.
The 340hp 4.2L V8 hurls the chassis around any corner. In a straight line, my heart leapt into my throat, I was that shocked with its speed. The clutch and transmission were smooth. The 0-60 test completely surprised us. The time is listed from Audi at 5.3 seconds, but it felt so much faster than that. The pure acceleration was thrill inducing and almost caused me to wet myself. Sixth gear still held power to accelerate and pass on the highway whenever I wanted and downshifting to fifth was a blast to shoot passed the slow lane. The Audi gets 13city/20hwy, but it was so much fun to drive.
