Sportier, more expressive, more exclusive – this is the motto behind the new S line sports packages from the Audi subsidiary quattro GmbH.
In the case of the Audi A2 S line, the sports suspension from quattro GmbH makes even more direct contact with the road thanks to its lowering, specially tuned springs and firmer shock absorbers. Four cast aluminium 9-spoke wheels of size 7Jx17 with 205/40 R 17 tyres also enhance the appearance of the Audi A2.
A sporty interior is a further prerequisite for a sportier drive. The perfectly fitting sports seats in a combination of black leather/”Speed” cloth each have an electric lumbar support. The control elements, including the 3-spoke sports steering wheel and the gear knob, are trimmed with perforated leather, the gear lever gaiter, handbrake grip and door trim inserts with black smooth leather.
The instrument cluster with titanium-grey dials, the Driver Information System (DIS) with Auto Check Control, a black headlining and an illuminated vanity mirror provide the finishing touches to this exclusive ambience S line emblems on the rubbing strips of the rear doors identify this dynamic A2.
The sports package is available for all A2 versions except the 1.2 TDI and costs 2500.
The Audi A4 S line also offers lowered sports suspension with firmer springs and shock absorbers. Four cast aluminium 9-spoke wheels of size 7.5Jx17 with 235/45 R 17 tyres give this vehicle its powerful appearance.
Avus Silver and Misano Red, pearl effect are available as additional colour options. This dynamic Audi A4 is additionally identified by S line emblems on the rubbing strips of the rear doors.
The sporty, exclusive theme is continued inside the vehicle: the sports seats in a combination of black leather/cloth each have an electric lumbar support. Control elements such as the 3-spoke sports steering wheel and the gear knob in perforated leather ensure a sportier driving feel. The gear lever gaiter and handbrake grip are trimmed with black smooth leather, the headlining is of black cloth. A trim strip of matt brushed aluminium provides a visual link between the dashboard and the black “Speed” cloth door trim inserts.
The exclusive atmosphere is rounded off by the Driver Information System (DIS), the Audi on-board computer with Auto Check Control and the lighting package with new additional interior lighting features.
The sports package is available for A4 versions over 75 kW and starts at 2700.
