The Audi RS4 was originally introduced in 2000 as a European only avant model powered by a biturbo 2.7 Liter V6 with a pair of upgraded turbochargers and flared arches. The power plant produced 375 HP and 325 lb-ft of torque and would rocket from 0 to 60 MPH in only 4.9 seconds on its way to a 155 MPH top speed. In 2005 the A4 was redesigned once again and with it came a 4.2 Liter FSI V8 that made 420 HP with 0 to 60 MPH times falling around 4.0 seconds flat.
The Audi RS4 is offered for the first time in three different body versions. No matter if a sedan, station wagon or convertible, the RS4 offers new dimensions in driving dynamics by combining innovative ideas. The exciting looks of all three versions and exquisite level of equipment that stands up to for the uppermost opulence standards make the RS4 line-up, the latest high-performance products from quattro (Audi’s sports division) to stand among the most desirable vehicles on the market.
From this summer, Audi will for the first time be offering additional versions of the RS 4. Following the successful market launch of the saloon at the end of last year, the Avant and Cabriolet versions will be appearing at dealers from the summer. This will round off the RS 4 family. This highly emotionally charged, high-performance product from quattro GmbH unites the characteristics of a sports car with supreme everyday qualities. This is as true of the saloon version as it is of the Wagon and the four-seater Convertible.
