The 4.2L V8 engine has been around longer than we know and Audi needs to replace the naturally-aspirated with the one which more efficient. This engine which lastly powering the Audi S5 special edition has total power output around 354 horsepower. Now, it is very unfair that amount of power is installed on the coupe model because we think that convertible or roadster sportscar will be more appropriate.
