Audi S4 by MS Design
As we saw with the recent DRIVE video, it’s relatively easy to tune Audi’s S4, giving it the performance to rival the range’s flagship RS 4. Austria’s MS Design has gone a step further with its A46 program, adding in some visual treats.

Due to make its world premiere at Top Marques Monaco (April 18-21), the company is touting it as the closest thing you can get to an RS 4 Saloon. The 245 kW (333 hp) 3.0 TFSI supercharged V6 engine has been massaged to produce 343 kW (460 hp), meaning 100 km/h appears in 4.5 seconds and top speed is unrestricted at 287 km/h (180 mph).

Aesthetically, the A46 wears an aggressive front fascia – which can house a genuine RS 4 grille – featuring larger air intakes, a lower spoiler and side vents. There’s also a pair of side skirts and rear bumper with air outlets and a carbon fibre diffuser housing twin tailpipes.

Chassis changes include an MS big brake system, while an adjustable coilover suspension kit drops the saloon over a set of black 8.5 x 20-inch lightweight alloy wheels. Moving inside the cabin, the interior receives a mixture of leather, suede and carbon fibre elements.

If you were wondering, MS Design had originally named the program A45, but changed it to avoid any confusion with the Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG.
