Who in their right might would challenge a Bugatti Chiron is a puny Audi S4? Well, this guy did and predictably lost. While, it looks like an Audi sedan from the late 90s, it has been souped up so that it produces 1300 hp. That’s a lot a poke but still not enough to beat the 1500 hp Bugatti Chiron. Both cars have all-wheel drive but the multi-million dollar hypercar is just too advanced and sophisticated. The race took place at the SCC500 Rolling50 1000 event. The Audi S4 is tuned by Hannover Hardcore. It makes 1300 hp on E85 fuel and produces a peak torque of 992 lb-ft (1345 Nm). … [Read more...] about David vs Goliath: Audi S4 vs Bugatti Chiron

While the seller of today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe S4 estate says it needs some work, he also claims that the big ticket item—replacement of the timing chain guides—has already been done. Let’s see if this hot wagon’s price will make it one and done. If you’re a big fan of David Bowie’s Cha-Cha-Cha-Changes you might have wanted to turn and face the strange that was represented by last Friday’s 1988 BMW 750iL. That V12 luxury sedan it had gone through a number of transmutations to achieve its current, supercharged and manually transmitted form. For the rest of us however, its reported need of a new clutch (damn that manual conversion!) and $6,500 asking price evoked more the feeling of wham, bam, no thank you ma’am and the heavily modded car went down in a massive 87-percent Crack Pipe loss. My favorite Bowie song is Heroes, off the 1977 album of the same title. This disk was the second of Bowie’s ‘Berlin … [Read more...] about At $5,000, Could This ‘Work Needing’ 2004 Audi S4 Avant Still Work for You?
Some drag-racing enthusiasts prefer to buy their 10-second car straight from the dealer, whereas others would gladly spend their hard earned, and time, in building one. Take this Audi S4, for example, which started life sometime between 1994 and 2002 as a B5 sedan. Back then, it had a twin-turbo 2.7-liter V6 that was good for 265 PS (261 HP / 195 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque in Europe, and 250 hp (254 PS / 189 kW) and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) in the United States. The official 0 to 100km/h (0-62mph) time was 5.6 seconds and top speed was electronically limited to 250km/h (155mph). Very impressive, indeed, even by today’s standards, but not impressive enough for the owner of this example, who wanted something truly extreme for his ride. Also Watch: Does This Audi S4 B5 Look Like A 1,100HP+ Super Saloon To You? According to the video posted below, this S4 makes a whopping 1,250 PS (1,232hp / 919kW) and 1,345Nm (992lb-ft) of torque when running on E85 fuel. The insane amount of … [Read more...] about Old Audi S4 Has 1,232 HP, Nudges 200 Mph In 1/2-Mile Drag Strip Run
Without wishing to sound too bleak about it, there's an unstoppable trend in the automotive industry that ought to concern us all. Downsizing, combined with the rise of the turbocharger and the drawn-out demise of the manual transmission has virtually signalled the end for the venerable combination of atmospheric petrol motor and DIY gears. Granted, the march of technology means we've not really suffered a downfall in quality - but we're all about choice at PH, and beyond the prospect of a new Ford Mustang, what other possibilities now exist? As a consequence, many fairly ordinary cars have now become rather more appealing, often for what lies under the bonnet. Less than 15 years ago it was possible to buy either a VW Golf or an Alfa 147 with a pair of different 3.2-litre (!) V6s. A Rover 75 had a 4.6-litre V8 for a period. There was a Subaru Legacy with a 3.0-litre flat-six. And, of course, there were a pair of Audi RS4s with different power outputs of 4.2-litre V8 engine. Now of … [Read more...] about Audi S4: Spotted
