Audi unveiled its really hot RS4 this morning to the soundtrack of a beating heart, which caused the crowd to shift nervously in their loafers for about five minutes as the thumping increased in speed (cliche my ass, it does the job). The 400hp wonder that emerged looks nearly identical to the S4, with major differences being under the hood, where a 400hp version of the company's mighty 4.2 liter V8 lurks like a troll under a bridge. Yes, please.

[Update: See AutoWeek's excellent piece on the new RS4, and Audi's new orientation toward normally aspirated (that's non-turbo) cars that will blow a hole the size of a German sedan in the space-time continuum.]
