Audi Press Release

Audi RS4 AvantAudi AG has unveiled the first images of its supremely sporty RS4 Avant and Cabriolet models.

Following the successful international launch of the RS4 saloon at the end of last year, the Avant and Cabriolet versions will be launched around the middle of the year in Europe, rounding off the very desirable RS4 family.

This highly emotionally charged, high-performance product from quattro GmbH unites the characteristics of a sports car with supreme everyday qualities. This is as true of the saloon version as it is of the Avant and the four-seater Cabriolet.

The RS4 has numerous new features to distinguish it. Most notably, there is the V8 engine with an output of 309 kW. This is the first time that a manufacturer has combined petrol direct injection with a high-revving concept. Engine speeds of up to 8,250 rpm are possible. Another highlight is the suspension with the latest generation of quattro permanent four-wheel drive and Dynamic Ride Control.

Audi RS4 AvantThe Cabriolet and Avant have likewise been subjected to a rigorous regime of weight reduction measures to make sure that they are equally sporty. Even though the engineers have systematically applied lightweight construction principles, all RS4 versions feature luxurious equipment that singles out the Audi RS4 as a high-performance vehicle suitable for everyday driving.

The RS4 sedan will be launched in Australia in May 2006, with the Avant following in the 4th quarter. The Cabriolet is yet to be confirmed for Australia.
