A mask to disguise him, a great silver stallion, and thus began his fame.

The line on the inside over at Edmunds is claiming that this here compact exec car that's looking more like a caped crusader of some sort, is the next Audi A4. This new whip's expected to debut as a 2009 model year vehicle with engines "expected to range from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder to a 4.2-liter V8 much like the current model." Although we're thinking they mean a 3.2-liter V6 for the A4 rather than a 4.2-liter V8 — which we would expect to see in the S 4, we'll buy what they're saying about expecting to see this masked man make an official debut at the Frankfurt show in September. We'll let you know if we see it at the Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung — or any trusty sidekick we hope may be sitting nearby.
