Live from Paris 2008: 2010 Audi S4 gets supercharged in Paris

Honestly, red is the worst color to display a car in at an auto show. Nonetheless it is a sexy color and a great color when you’re introducing a high-performance model of which you swapped a V8 for a V6.

Audi dropped its 340-hp V8 for a 3.0 TFSI V6 Supercharged engine that makes 333-hp with a maximum torque of 325 lb-ft. Even with the loss of a couple of horses the 2010 S4 does 0 to 62 mph in 5.1 seconds and returns a fuel-economy of 24 mpg. The engine is mated to a 7-speed S-tronic.

Audi will be bringing the 2010 Audi S4 to the U.S. fall 2009. Pricing details will be announced closer to launch although Audi says it will be similar to the outgoing model.
