New supercharged S4 prices announced
10 December 2008

Audi has released prices for its new four-wheel drive supercharged S4.

Prices will start from just over £34k when it goes on sale in April next year. The S4 will come in both saloon and estate versions producing 329bhp from the 3.0-litre V6 engine.

The S4 saloon will cost £34,225, while the estate version, the Audi S4 Avant, will cost £35,570.

Customers will also be able to specify a new seven-speed twin-clutch DSG transmission, which costs an additional £1420 in the saloon and £1230 in the estate.

The new V6 engine is cleaner and more efficient than the outgoing 4.2-litre V8, and will return 29.1mpg on the combined cycle. The new Audi S4 will also be quicker than the previous model, reaching 62mph in 5.1 seconds.

Our Verdict

Audi A4

The Audi A4 is an improvement over the previous version, but isn't good enough to topple the BMW 3 Series

Bargain. This would cost you £10K more from Audi Deutschland(rrp €50,950 €1=£0.87).

Wonder if Audi UK will allow Germans to order LHD. They could save €12K on a base S4.

If they do it would be subject to a large premium. A few thousand pounds id say... Although Mercedes got in trouble for pulling this trick a few years back.

Legally its allowed under European law. Practically Audi won't want to do it and they ll make LHD life for their UK dealers v difficult. Sneaky ways of saying "i don't want to sell my lhd cars through the uk"... Ultra long waiting lists would be one way to achieve it. ! month wait in Germany 1 year in the UK for lhd for example..

That's an awful lot of money to look like a prize berk.
