265hp that's it stock.
you are not taking into account the Torque curve and gearing.
The S4 makes it's max torque at 1800 rpm and then holds that number
to 5200rpm where it starts to fall off slowly. The RS4 makes it's
peak torque at 3800rpm and doesn't equal the Stock S4's torque until
3000 rpm. That is a HUGE difference.
Stock S4's have 265hp max.
