The Audi RS4 takes its place at the top of the A4 line. A 420hp V8 is capable of accelerating the lighter RS4 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds and 200 km/h in 16.6 seconds. The RS4 will be the first Audi model to apply a next-generation quattro drive system. More aluminum components have been used to remove excess weight out of the standard A4. A reduced ride height, larger brakes and 19-inch wheels complete the performance upgrades.

What Changed:

This 420-bhp V-8 super sedan is the ultimate evolution of the stellar S4. A new FSI direct injection V-8 is responsible for the extra power vs. S4. The 6-speed manual and quattroŽ AWD are standard equipment. Standard 19-inch alloy wheels, performance tires, a sport suspension and Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) are included in the RS4.
