The driving impressions
Compact as it stands. Broad made with the Ur-Quattro reminiscent flared fenders bulge under which 265er slippers on 19-inchers. As usual, the RS models from Audi adorn the front, a honeycomb grille and huge air intakes for cooling the high-revving V8 up to 8,500 trips. 331 kW (450 hp) of the naturally aspirated engine with a displacement of 4.2 liters. Enough force to make the sprint RS4 Avant in 4.7 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h, optional to have a top speed of 280 km / h.
8,500 rpm is reached, highlighted by a brutal dull sound that gets under your skin. It is shifted only by a specially tuned for the RS4 seven-speed S tronic seventh with a fuel consumption-reducing gear out a bit longer.

The new Audi RS4 Avant its excellent suitability for everyday use. The standard driving dynamics system Audi drive select the drive or comfort mode is set and the combined rolls smoothly and quietly along the country roads. Fast overtaking? No problem! Shift down with the shift paddles on the steering wheel and throttle. As if stung by a tarantula, the RS 4 Avant rushes them to glide along slowly in the next moment.
On the track, however, he is a wild beast that rushes impetuously through the curves. We were unlucky, or perhaps even the great good fortune, during a violent rainstorm on the Red Bull-ring can be traveling. The hilly route created called on all our skill level, to stay on the extreme wear through the rubber very slippery track.

As standard with the Audi drive select feature, the choice of the best voting is easy. As always, comfort, auto and dynamic available. Together with the optional MMI navigation system, it expands the program to individual point to which the individual components are not differentiated selected.
