Perception

What is?

Do you need to ask? Is the Audi fast station wagon, the spiritual successor to the RS2 that started it all 26 years ago with a car that accelerated to 30mph faster than a McLaren F1. Granted, the RS6 Avant is the father of power, but we’d say the smaller, lighter RS4 is quicker and therefore even more desirable. It’s been around since 1999, when it used a 2.7-litre twin-turbocharged V6, before switching to the nat asp V8 for a few thunderous golden generations before effectively downsizing into trendy B9 form (to use Audi’s internal code) and running a 2.9-litre twin-turbo good for 444bhp. That’s left for this latest incarnation, a facelift (and background) that eschews power increases in favor of judicious mission optimization. It’s about tweaking the chassis and drivetrain, to deliver a more nuanced car, even if there are still elements of the Ingolstadt hammer in its character. Audi is emphasizing weight reduction and improving driving dynamics, which sounds good to us.

There are also visual adjustments. Following an extensive restyling of the A4 range, look out for new blacked-out Matrix LED headlights, intensifying a face that was nonetheless not without its aggressiveness. The single-frame grille is wider and flatter, the bespoke RS front scoops are bigger than ever, chrome slots split the taillights in half, and it all offers a full rearview mirror quick lane. “. The ur-Quattro line is supported by the tumescent front and rear wheel arches (30 mm wider compared to the original Avant) and the (aesthetic) air vents on the leading edge of the bonnet. You will look everywhere for a car with a more planted look than this, even on its standard 19-inch 10-spoke Audi Sport alloy wheels (20-inch wheels are a £2,000 option, there are two new models.) Audi claims aesthetic kinship with the mythical IMSA 90 GTO racing car from the 80s, perhaps the most disturbed car in its entire rear catalog Costs.

Elsewhere, the changes are all in the fine print. The new software promises quicker shifts in the eight-speed Tiptronic gearbox, a broader torque curve (442 lb-ft between 1,900 and 5,000 rpm), and there’s quicker reactions and a more backward bias in the quattro hardware, along with revised software for anti-passive roll settings and adaptive dampers. All the safety, driver assistance and connectivity have been upgraded, with an RS-specific Audi virtual cockpit (it looks almost quaint now, six years after it first appeared in the TT v3.0) and the latest MMI touch screen operating system. There is also a range of vibrant colors.

What’s the verdict?

This reworked RS4 shows how committed RS GmbH is to creating cars with character. A little stuck, mind
  Hammer Time : Pick Your Stick!

The reworked RS4 shows how committed RS GmbH is to creating cars with real character, as opposed to machines you just point down the road. Whatever the weather. The guys running the show there are young and enthusiastic, and their cars have impressive upgradable bandwidth, including huge potential to entertain.

The RS4 is visually distinctive, impeccably designed and built, and has the pace and capability to exceed the demands of any real-world supercar worth its salt. Difficult to reproach objectively, therefore. Even so, he still feels a bit tense and not entirely comfortable with the more outgoing aspects of his mandate. In that sense, it’s probably tailored to your audience.
