Audi RS4 Avant returns with more power than ever

Audi RS4 Avant returns with more power than ever

The new RS4 can be ordered from the autumn onwards with pricing starting in Europe at 79,800 euros - expect a United Kingdom price and spec soon.

Styling inspiration is said to have been taken from the Audi 90 Quattro IMSA GTO - because why wouldn't you remind everyone you made that at every possible opportunity - with aggressively flared intakes, and arches that are 30mm wider than standard.

Audi's new RS4 is among the brand's new stars at the 2017 Frankfurt motor show and will arrive in showrooms across Europe from early 2018.

Behind that distinctive front end will sit Audi Sport's latest engine of choice, the 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6, replacing the much loved 4.2-litre V8. Its peak torque of 600 Nm (442.5 lb-ft) - 170 Nm (125.4 lb-ft) more than the previous model - is available across a broad engine speed range from 1,900 to 5,000 rpm.

All of the power is channelled through an eight-speed automatic transmission, ditching the old dual-clutch auto, and feeding into an all-wheel drive system. The top speed is 155mph. With up to 32.1mpg and emissions as low as 199g per kilometre of Carbon dioxide possible meanwhile, it's - on paper at least - much more efficient than the old auto. A rear sport differential enabling torque division between the rear wheels for enhanced handling adjustability, will be standard on United Kingdom the model.

The standard-fit RS sport suspension sets the Audi RS 4 Avant another seven millimetres lower than the standard A4 with sport suspension. There are also dynamic ride control settings if you choose the optional RS sports suspension. Carbon ceramic brakes are also optional, while the driver can toggle with the standard drive mode select system for various personalities. Expected to be launched globally sometime next month, deliveries of the Audi RS4 Avant will only commence towards the beginning of 2018. The RS sport seats with optional honeycomb pattern, the flat-bottomed RS leather multifunction sport steering wheel, the shift gate and the illuminated door sill trims are all sport RS emblems.

In the Audi virtual cockpit and head-up display, RS-specific displays indicate the g-forces, tire pressures and torque.
