Audi RS4

It’s the car that marked the of exciting Audis, yet it’s reliable and there are plenty to from too. Here’s you need to know to find a one

R8 aside, no other recent gets under your like this one

This was one car when Audi sprang it on us in Its engine alone was enough to get attention. A naturally aspirated all-aluminium V8 with direct injection and a huge 12.5:1 ratio, it revved all the way to 8500rpm and put out when running on super

All of this energy was channelled the four-wheel drive  with 60 per of it heading rearwards unless the decided otherwise. There was ‘Dynamic Ride Control’ a purely mechanical system hydraulically linked diagonally dampers with valves to the passage of fluid according to the acting on the wheels. The result was in a straight line, tautness in and a fluidity of fast, involving somewhat unexpected in an Audi.

The RS4 differed from the regular A4, and the but yawningly inert S4, in having wheelarches, aluminium front and an aluminium bonnet. Initially it as a saloon only but an Avant followed, then a rather cabriolet that is perhaps forgotten.

The RS4’s drivers’ car were cemented by there just one transmission, a six-speed while a Sport button to the appeal, sharpening the throttle and opening bypass valves in the to release a savage onslaught of percussion.

If the RS4 you’re looking at has the optional pack, it will sit a little and ride more firmly. prefer it, others favour the set-up. This pack brings front seats side bolsters move when the Sport button is clamping you in place and squeezing lunch. Given that the seats’ bolsters are manually anyway, this is a slightly gimmick.

The standard steering is disappointing, too, the aluminium-look part of its rim actually consisting of two of ill-fitting plastic, but a better carbonfibre-look alternative was an option.

Don’t worry too much the steering wheel, though. The RS4 has far attributes to enjoy. This of an R8 (the cheaper version of uses the same engine), no recent Audi gets your skin quite this one.
