In-game descriptionEdit

"Contrary to its modest looks, its mechanics are at the next level. A 4WD sports saloon for mature drivers."

Two years after the Audi premium sedan, the A4 made its debut in 1995, the company from Ingolstadt, Germany, unveiled the sporty variant wearing the heralded "S" emblem. The "S" in S4 stood for sport, but enthusiasts knew it stood for much more than that. Simply put, it turned the sheepish-looking sedan into a wolf.

To keep its sheep-in-wolf's-clothing theme true, Audi opted not to overly spice up the car's exterior, however if you look closer, you'll see bigger wheels that measure 17" in[5] diameter, a larger vent in the front spoiler to cool the brakes and twin exhaust pipes, all of which set the S4 apart from the A4. Inside the heart of this mechanical canine is a formidable powerplant. Powering all four wheels is a 2671-cc twin-turbocharged DOHC[6] V-6 with the company's valve-timing technology. It pumps out 261 HP at 5800 rpm and peak torque is rated at 295.1 lb-ft[7] from 1850 to 3600 rpm. It comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox.

Managing the torque between the four wheels is Audi's venerable quattro[8] all-wheel-drive system. The car's suspension remains relatively the same with the A4's, but spring and damper rates were tuned for better performance. The end result is a sports sedan that can outrun many sports cars of its day, yet exhibit a a smooth quality.

TriviaEdit

  • In GT2, the race modified version of this car has a bug where, if the car is raced in a night course, the textures (stored in GT2.VOL/carobj/gas4r.cnp.gz/gas4r.cnp) appear to be corrupted. YouTube user MMRivit has provided a fix for this, but this requires rebuilding of the GT2.VOL file.
