Eye candy: [ _____ ] magnet-yellow B8 S4 Avant

This is obviously very nice, but will we ever see it here in the States? And perhaps more importantly (for us, anyway), would we care?

Yes, the boosted B8 S4 is said to be a better car than the B[7/6] in most quantifiable ways (more neutral and balanced, more torquey, less nose overhang, less thirsty). But we suspect that the intoxicating rumble of the previous generations’ 4.2-liter mill has us absolutely ruined on anything with fewer than eight cylinders and natural aspiration in these cars.
