The Audi RS4 is unique. An innocuous looking practical estate that can out perform many so called supercars!

Porsche helped develop the RS4's forerunner the RS2 adding engine and suspension modifications to go with Audi's usual bullet proof reliability. Power went up to 375bhp in the original B5 RS4 from only 2.7 litres, giving it the highest specific output of any production car at 140bhp/L.

This high power coupled with 4-wheel drive traction make the RS4 a start performer off the line. 30mph arrives in just 1.7sec, with 60mph following just 3 seconds later. Top speed is 'politically' limited to 155mph but 175mph is entirely possible. Audi is becoming known for it's stylish interiors and the RS4 is no exception with copious use of leather and carbon fibre trim.
