First introduced in 2000, the Audi RS4 Avant has been blazing trails in Europe for more than a decade. The third-gen RS4 Avant debuted in 2012, and for the 2014 model year, Audi Exclusive put together a nice one-off special edition.

Despite its current state, the RS4 Avant still has its fans, one of whom presumably placed an order for the hot wagon just to send it to Audi Exclusive for some personalized updates. The result is this thing of beauty: a sparkling one-off RS4 Avant dressed in a unique Peridot metallic exterior finish.

The fancy body color, which looks like a shiny shade of lime, isn’t the only upgrade given to this RS4. Personalized details are scattered throughout the the exterior and interior of the high-performance wagon.

Audi Exclusive’s overall work on this RS4 gets top grades from us. Now how about Audi pushing forward with the new RS4 Avant so Audi Exclusive can work on those bad-boys soon. Seems like a reasonable request, right?

The striking Peridot metallic exterior finish is the unquestioned highlight of this personalized RS4 Avant. But we’d be remiss if we didn’t point out that Audi Exclusive also added gloss-black details on the front grille, mirror caps, and tailpipe to complete the exterior upgrades.

Audi Exclusive continued using the Peridot color inside the cabin, specifically on the door panels, the seat wheels, and the center console trim. Gloss-black accents were also evenly distributed inside the cabin, creating a clever color combination that imbibes the sporty spirit of the RS4 Avant. Audi Exclusive badging on the dashboard and door panels concludes the interior upgrades on this one-off RS4 Avant.

The 2014 Audi RS4 Avant is powered by a 4.2-liter, FSI, V-8 engine that pumps out 450 naturally aspirated horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque. That equates to an impressive 0-to-60-mph time of just 4.7 seconds to go with a top speed of 174 mph. Power is, of course, sent to all four wheels courtesy of the car’s seven-speed S tronic automatic transmission.

We’re not sure how much Audi Exclusive’s personalization work costs, but a standard RS4 Avant retails for €77,550, which is about $97,200 as of 11/192014. Not that it matters because the RS4 Avant isn’t available in the US anyway.

Conclusion

As much as I think that the RS4 Avant needs to get updated, I can’t blame the customer who commissioned Audi Exclusive to work on his own ride. That Peridot metallic finish is a treat to the eyes. The interior updates are also an improvement. There’s a nice balance between the dark leather and the Peridot accents, flashy enough to catch our eye, but not to the extent where it became tacky.

    • No performance upgrades
