  • 2018 Audi RS 4 Avant Debut 29

The latest bearer of the RS badge combines everyday usability with exceptional performance from a V6 biturbo 2.9 TFSI engine delivering 450bhp and 600Nm of torque via standard quattro drive. The engine is then mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and rear-biased all-wheel drive.

Sadly, the RS 4 is still exclusively a wagon affair, the body style referred to as an Avant by Audi. "The Audi RS 4 Avant is our RS icon with an incomparable history", commented Stephan Winkelmann, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH. The top speed is 250 kph.

Mexico braces itself for impact of Hurricane Katia
Katia transitioned from a tropical storm to a hurricane on Wednesday afternoon, and was a Category 2 hurricane as of 4 p.m. Irma will then likely bring hurricane conditions across the entire Florida Peninsula as it moves northward through Monday.

The Audi RS4 Avant will go on sale in the United Kingdom after Frankfurt, with first customer cars due in early 2018. RS sport suspension plus with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) is available as an option, as are ceramic brakes and RS-specific dynamic steering.

The styling kit was inspired by the 90 Quattro IMSA GTO racing ancestor, and includes the typical RS honeycomb air inlets, 30mm-wider wheel arches and an RS-specific diffuser and exhaust pipes. The Audi patented Matrix headlights are also offered as an optional extra. There are 19-inch forged aluminium wheels, with 20-inch rims optional, as well as an RS diffuser and the huge oval exhausts familiar from before. The show auto is finished in pearl-effect Nogaro Blue - a colour that was available on the first-generation of RS4. "In China, the Audi RS 4 will provide fresh impetus for growth as the only high-performance Avant in its segment". The standard-fit RS sports suspension sets the Audi RS 4 Avant another 7 mm lower than the A4 basic model with sports suspension.
