They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so how much is a video with an insanely powerful old Audi S4 that’s trying to keep all four wheels on the tarmac worth?
When it left the factory floor, somewhere between 1997 and 2001, the S4 B5 made use of a twin-turbo 2.7-liter V6 engine.
It had 265 PS (261 hp / 195 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque, which allowed it to go to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.6 seconds, and up to top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
The example that you’re about to see in action at the drag strip, competing against the clock, has been tuned to the max. Last time ςe saw it, it had about 1,200 horses to play with, but now the output has allegedly gone up to 1,442 hp. That’s almost as much as a Bugatti Chiron in a car that’s about two decades old.
There’s no need to explain what this car can do, but it managed to hit almost 305 km/h (190 mph) during a 1/2-mile sprint.
