The Audi RS4


The Audi RS4 is a high-performance version of the Audi A4, a compact executive car produced by German automaker Audi. It slots above the Audi S4 as the fastest model in the A4 range.
After a long hiatus, the second generation RS4, now built on Audi's "B7" A4 platform, became available to European customers in the Summer of 2006. Price is roughly 66,629€ in Europe. It was introduced at the 2006 North American International Auto Show in January and arrived in August 2006 in North America with a base price of $66,000.
The B7 RS4 is an almost complete departure from previous RS cars, as it was launched as a sedan, with an Avant and Convertible version arriving later. Only the RS6 has gone this route before, the previous RS4 and RS2 were available exclusively as Avants. In addition, power comes from an FSI equipped, normally aspirated 4.2 L V8. This engine is very powerful, producing a total output of 420 PS (309 kW/414 hp), over 100 PS/litre. The engine also produces 430 N·m (317 ft·lbf) of torque. Curb weight for the 2007 model is stated at 3957 lb

Audi factory numbers indicate that the vehicle will be able to go 0-100 km (62 mph) in 4.8 seconds. Since Audi's factory times tend to be conservative, most experts seem to agree that a time under 4.8 seconds is likely a possibility.



The RS4 aims to compete with the upcoming V8-powered BMW M3, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class AMG (currently the C55 AMG and upcoming C63), the Cadillac CTS V-Series, and the upcoming Lexus IS-F.
