Spy Photo: Audi B10 S4 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="81811"] We had some new photos showing the Audi A4 Avant out testing and in this case it’s the S4 Avant that’s out on the snowy roads flaunting its quad exhaust pipes. As for now we have no clear indications about the power but we suspect that the turbo charged V6 petrol engine will stay for this generation possible with some help of mild-hybrid technology. A debut could come at the end of 2023 as a 2024 model.

Find of the Day: 2004 Audi S4 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="77579"] words: Bill, photos: Audi Wilmington Until the C8 RS 6 Avant hit the US, the B6/B7 S4 Avant with the 4.2 V8 was the best Avant we could have (my opinion of course).

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="77427"] We have some new photos of the Audi A4 Avant and this time the prototypes make their Nürburgring debut. To be honest there is not much to write home about otherwise since the prototype still looks the same since our first sighting. Engine options will continue to stay petrol and diesel though a fully electric version later on is not to be ruled out. Most likely we will also see the manual gearbox go away with this generation making it au...
