2017 Audi S4 Spotted Testing in the Alps, the Camouflage is Completely Gone

The new Audi RS4 is nowhere to be seen yet, but the Audi S4, however, is ready to make a debut this month at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2015.

It's not the first time we're providing info on the 2017 Audi S4, but the latest batch of photos sent in by our car photographers from the field show the performance sedan wearing zero camouflage, so it's only natural that you also had to see it.

The car you'll see in the pictures was spotted in the Alps, and as we expected, it has certain exterior design features that will set it apart from your average Audi A4.

By that we mean Audi fitted bigger air intakes in the front bumper along with wider side sills and a quad exhaust system, you know, so other traffic participants know what's rolling around them, and we're sure you already noticed the bigger wheels and the slightly revised grille

However, a little bird told us it's power you're interested in, so we won't beat around the bush with this topic.

In fact, we'll tell you this: while the current Audi S4 uses a supercharged engine with 333 horsepower, the 2016 S4 will draw its strength from a V6 that should deliver around 340-350 horsepower, but some voices also suggest the former will be carried over to the new generation.

The resources will be directed towards the asphalt through Audi's quattro all-wheel drive system, while in terms of gearboxes we expect the brand with the four rings to rely on a 7-speed twin-clutch transmission.

Sure, aficionados are waiting for the RS4, Audi's way of showing they really mean business, but that model should arrive in about two years from now. However, when it does emerge, the RS4 will take a bow with a new twin-turbo V6 mill that is expected to deliver at least 450 horsepower.
