See Psycho Bob's post re our guesses about the cost of an S8. At 108k
all I can say is OUCH.
As for the A4 based S4, since I live in the land of deep pockets and
short arms, IMHO 45k is a bit much. A 2.8 with a single turbo, the 17"
wheels and other goodies you suggest might be the hot setup and Audi
can probably do it for around $40k. To each his own but I would not
want leather in such a car so there's a few bucks. I might even be
willing to accept the 1.8t 4cyl if necessary, but the 2.8 is sure preferable.
I know WMB has a much larger market share then does Audi, but if WMB can
sell the MI would think Audi might have a market for the vehicle we are
This is one time I hope someone (AoA) is eavesdropping.
