Through the Tired Eyes of Faith

Audi RS4 Avant V8 North America


Audi has revealed its V8-powered RS4, and just like the original which appeared in 2000, it will be sold in Avant form only. And it probably won’t come to the U.S. market.

Based on the same all-wheel-drive mechanical package used by the RS5 coupe, the third incarnation of Ingolstadt‘s go-fast people hauler is set to get its public airing at the upcoming Geneva motor show prior to a planned start to European sales around mid-year.

Audi has not revealed a weight figure for the RS4 prior to its unveiling in Geneva next month. It does, however, claim 0-to-62-mph acceleration of 4.7 seconds, which is two-tenths of a second faster than the second-generation model and just a tenth slower than the two-door RS5.

Top speed, like that of all of Audi’s RS models, remains limited to 155 mph in standard trim, but its quattro division is planning a performance option that raises the figure to 174 mph.
