Re: Road & Track on the new S4

Yes, but I think the car they tested might have been a Euro-spec S4.  The
interior pictures are clearly from a Euro-spec S4...ecru leather seats and
door panel inserts, carbon fiber trim.  The US-spec S4 only comes with
aluminum or birdseye maple trim, and the seats only come in black or sliver
leather OR black leather with silver or blue alcantara.

I would bet the car R&T tested was the same car that was shown at the NY
auto show (same color, euro-spec, and the R&T article states they test drove
the car in NY).

I still want one, though!
