New Audi RS4 Avant unveiled with 125lb ft torque boost

2018 Audi RS 4 Avant unveiled with 2.9 twin-turbo V6

Audi's all-new RS4 Avant made its public debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

If that's how you think - and a properly practical, not too big, appealing estate vehicle with supercar performance appeals - then this 2018 Audi RS4 Avant will be right up your street.

The new Audi RS 4 Avant weighs 1,790 kilograms, which is 80 kilograms less than the previous one.

It's based on the current A4 platform which provides the new RS4 Avant with a very good starting point, for the standard model and the current S4 are night and day improvements over their predecessors.

"The RS4 is our icon", said Winkelmann.

Lewandowski slammed by Bayern CEO Rummenigge over transfer complaints
It's not the first time he talks bad about our club and I know his agent Barthel is behind his statements . My advantage is that I played my whole career in Munich. "I am sorry for what Lewandowski said".

The 2018 Audi RS 4 Avant is powered by the same 2.9-liter twin-turbo V-6 found in the RS 5, here delivering the same 444 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque, which is distributed to all four wheels by the same eight-speed automatic.

That, Audi says, is enough to launch you from zero to 100km/h in just 4.1 seconds and, if you order the RS dynamic package, the electronic speed limiter is raised to allow 280km/h. "In common with all our RS models, it blends enormous power output with superlative everyday utility". The weight loss - the new vehicle is 80 kilos lighter - has brought an alertness and responsiveness to each model unexpected from Ingolstadt products. In addition, there are widened rear fenders featuring even more pronounced blisters over the rear wheel arches than those seen up front and small vents mimicking the look of those up front alongside the outer edges of the LED tail-lights.

The RS4 has standard sports suspension, which makes it sit 7mm lower than a regular A4 Avant and Audi's Drive Select driving mode system is standard. It rides on 19-inch wheels standard, with 20s available as an option. An RS sport suspension plus package is available as an option, adding dynamic dampers, ceramic brakes, and RS-specific dynamic steering.

RS-specific displays to indicate g-force, tyre pressures, and torque, flat-bottomed steering wheel, and the vehicle can be further personalised with the Audi exclusive program. The basic price will be Euro 79,800 (approx Rs 61 lakh). United Kingdom pricing has yet to be announced.
