Our friends at Autoblog.nl bring us the first spy shots of the upcoming Audi S4 which was caught wearing no camouflage at all. Not seeing any differences compared to the standard Audi A4 that premiered in Frankfurt? Well, you’re partially right as the only visual evidence that this car is actually the S4 and not the A4 are the quad exhaust pipes that lay in the rear diffuser. Of course, when the S4 goes into production next year, it will get the same subtle treatment as the S5 meaning a chromed grille, aluminum mirrors and slightly larger air vents in the front bumper.
As you probably have already guessed, the S4 will hold no mechanical surprises as it will use the S5’s 4.2-litre FSI V8 engine that delivers 354 Hp (compared to 340 Hp of the current S4’s 4.2L V8). Power will be transferred to all wheels via a six-speed manual or automatic gearbox. -More images after the jump
