It Plays: Audi S4

by Michael Chandler

At the last Slammed Saturdays I threatened to bring my camera gear and pick someone for a quick shoot.  This lovely red B7 S4 revealed itself as a strong candidate.  So I walked up to Alex, the owner, as he was mowing down some french fries and pitched him the idea.  He was down, and so we moved the car and got down to business.

The S4 has always been a handsome vehicle, not requiring a whole lot of modifications to make them truly proper.  A set of wheels, coilovers and uncorking either the twin turbo 2.7 liter V6 or either of the 4.2 liter V8s do the trick nicely.

The devil is in the details, and if you were just going to say “Oh, coilovers and wheels?  I guess thats cool…” look at the wheels again.

Those green calipers?  Yeah, they’re not Audi calipers.  They’re Porsche calipers, and Porsches can stop pretty good.  So yeah, just wheels, coilovers and a set of freaking Porsche calipers mean this B7 S4 plays.
