Default Audi V8 and FSI V6 wins Wards 10 best engines again

"Audi 4.2L DOHC V-8 <p>By Bill Visnic <p>WardsAuto.com, Jan 4 2005 <p>Audi's power-packed 4.2L DOHC V-8 takes a second consecutive Ward's 10 Best Engines win. <p>This is a little embarrassing, but rather than admit it under duress when the Special Council starts an investigation, we'll own up now: Several of our editors may - may - have made Audi's marvelous 4.2L DOHC V-8 a 10 Best Engines winner without even driving it. <p>Because just firing up this thing produces an exhaust note so mellifluous - so criminally sensual - there's almost no need to leave the garage. The drug makers had better keep an eye on Audi AG, because if the German auto maker figures out a way to bottle the 4.2L V-8's exhaust sounds, Viagra and Levitra will be out of a job. <p>Audi's 4.2L V-8 is the exemplar of how to do exhaust. Perfectly. At idle, the aural deepness inspires a quiet nirvana. At full throttle, there's a sonorous, fine-machinery rip that no other V-8 can rival. And at all engine speeds between, a virtual rainbow of intoxicating intake and exhaust arias demands your constant attention. Audi's cars fitted with the 4.2L V-8 - it's in everything from the S4 and the allroad to the all-new S6 and the flagship A8/S8 - should have a stereo-system delete option. <p>All right, we're done slobbering about the sound. Beyond that, Audi's 4.2L V-8 is a virtual dynamo. It's the smallest-displacement V-8 in what we broadly define as the "premium V-8 class" of less than 5L (see below) - yet it's the most powerful. And although its 302 lb.-ft. (409 Nm) of torque lags its competition slightly, it's right on the mark when considering torque per liter: <p>Audi 4.2L 340 hp/302 lb.-ft. (409 Nm) <br>BMW 4.4L 325 hp/330 lb.-ft. (447 Nm) <br>Cadillac 4.6L 320 hp/315 lb.-ft. (427 Nm) <br>Lexus 4.3L 290 hp/320 lb.-ft. (434 Nm) <br>Mercedes 4.3L 275 hp/295 lb.-ft. (400 Nm) <br>Volkswagen 4.2L 335 hp/317 lb.-ft. (430 Nm) <br>Volvo 4.4L 311 hp/325 lb.-ft. (441 Nm) <p>Audi's 4.2L V-8 fronts impressive numbers, but its deeper beauty is its game-stopping flexibility and throttle response. This is a sports-car engine masquerading as a premium V-8, so there's the best of both worlds: Flexibility that allows you to ignore the gear lever (in the S4, the 4.2L V-8 is backed by a 6-speed manual gearbox with equally premium shift effort), but always ready to unleash a torrent of power from idle to redline. Several testers are convinced that from the midrange on, nothing short of a Ferrari or Porsche 911 can stay with an S4 at full throttle. <p>And did we mention the sound?"<p> <A HREF="http://subscribers.wardsauto.com/microsites/newsarticle.asp?mode=print&newsarticleid=2737208&r eleaseid=&srid=10088&magazineid=1004&siteid=26" TARGET="_blank">http://subscribers.wardsauto.c...id=26</A> <p> <A HREF="http://subscribers.wardsauto.com/microsites/Newsarticle.asp?newsarticleid=2737209&srid=10088&i nstanceid=55175&pageid=9608&magazineid=1004&siteid =26" TARGET="_blank">http://subscribers.wardsauto.c...id=26</A>
