Here comes the Audi RS 4 Avant ... and then a bit more
The eagerly awaited Audi RS 4 Avant will cost from £54,925 when it arrives in showrooms this autumn.
It uses the latest 4.2-litre V8 engine and delivers 450PS at 8,250rpm and 430Nm from 4,000 to 6,000rpm, does 0-62mph in 4.7 seconds, and is governed to 155mph top speed, but it can give a combined 26.4 mpg.
Owners can specify an optional Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) and dynamic steering for integration into standard Audi drive select adaptive dynamics system, and sports exhaust.
The seven speed auto box and engine can be tuned to attain 174 mph if required.
In common with every Audi RS model, the RS 4 Avant features quattro permanent all-wheel drive, which is bolstered by the advanced crown-gear centre differential and the sports rear differential for exceptionally smooth torque transfer between the front and rear axles and the left and right rear wheels.
The Dynamic Ride Control and dynamic steering options are available individually or combined as part of a new Sport Package, which also includes larger 20-inch rotor design aluminium or titanium-look alloy wheels to replace the standard 19-inch examples and a sports exhaust system that further amplifies the V8's distinctive engine note. Priced at £2,250, it offers a saving of £2,915 compared with specifying the options individually.
The interior of the RS 4 Avant is finished completely in black, with the exception of the roof lining, which is optionally available in Moon Silver. Chrome clasps subtly accentuate switches and control elements. Carbon inlays are standard, with brushed matte aluminium, Aluminium Race, piano black finish or a light stainless steel mesh available as options.
The standard front Super sports seats with integrated headrests are power- adjustable and covered in a combination of black leather and Alcantara. High-grade full leather packages, and an Audi exclusive design package incorporating RS bucket seats with even more pronounced contours and honeycomb quilting, are also available as options.
Standard equipment highlights also include DVD-based satellite navigation, Bluetooth mobile phone preparation, cruise control and Audi Music Interface iPod connection.
