Videos: Supercharged V6 on song in the Audi S4

By Johan Laubscher

Few things in this world sounds as good as a roaring V6. The Audi S4 has a tremendous supercharged 3.0 V6 and these types of Audis are being raced in two countries in the world, one in the northern hemisphere and the other in the southern hemisphere.

APR Motorsport in North America were the first to develop a Audi S4 B8 race car, which debuted in the Continental Tire Sports Cars Challenge during 2010. 

A year later and the S4 model also debuted on race tracks in South Africa, and went on to win the 2011 and 2012 South African Bridgestone Production Car Championships. In total four Audi S4 cars compete in South Africa and one so far in America.

The cars are beautiful and sound even better. Here are two onboard videos from which to sample the sounds of that glorious V6, one from APR and the other from South Africa.
