Audi S5: V8 4.2 FSI is here to stay?

Audi V8 4.2 FSI
Rumor has it that the beloved V8 4.2 FSI engine might stay a bit longer thanks to popular demand. Awesome!

With the introduction of the supercharged 3.0-liter V6 in the all-new S5 Cabrio, S4 and A6, it was assumed Audi would be dropping the FSI 4.2-liter V8 as an option on its hotter sedans and coupes. However, Audi is actively considering keeping the FSI V8 into the 2011 model year and possibly beyond.

According to our sources inside Audi, the reason for the decision is the 4.2-liter’s continued popularity, both with enthusiasts and everyday consumers who enjoy its output and entertaining audio.
