Audi RS4 Avant V8 North America
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.
