2013 Audi RS4 Avant
The third-generation Audi RS4 Avant combines potent performance wîth a high level of everyday practicality. It’s 4.2-liter V8 produces 331 kW (450 hp); the seven-speed S tronic and quattro permanent all-wheel drive transfer that power to the road. Its maximum torque of 430 Nm (317.15 lb-ft) is available from 4,000 to 6,000 rpm. The responsive V8 wîth its red-painted cylinder head covers accelerates the Audi RS4 Avant from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 4.7 seconds on its way to a governed top speed of 250 km/h (155.34 mph).
The exterior design flaunts the athletic character of the Audi RS4 Avant. The hexagonal single-frame grille is set in a frame wîth a matte aluminum-look finish; its honeycomb insert is finished in high-gloss anthracite. LED daytime running lights encircle the xenon plus units like a clasp in the wedge-shaped headlights. The air flows through large openings divided by crossbars and embedded in a distinctive bumper featuring a splitter edge like on a race car.
Audi, the RS4 Avant comes standard wîth quattro permanent all-wheel drive. The heart of this system is the crown-gear center differential. This compact and lightweight component can vary the distribution of power between the front and rear axles immediately, smoothly and over a wide range, wîth up to 70 percent flowing to the front or as much as 85 percent to the rear. The default 40:60 ratio of the rear-biased configuration ensures sporty handling.
The interior of the Audi RS4 Avant is clad completely in black, wîth the exception of the roofliner, which is optionally available in Moon Silver. Chrome clasps subtly accentuate switches and control elements. Carbon inlays are standard, wîth brushed matte aluminum, Aluminum Race, black piano finish or a light stainless steel mesh available as options. Audi offers exclusive high-grade leather packages for all seating options, including a design package wîth honeycomb quilting for the RS4 bucket seats. Rounding out the list of optional equipment is a broad range of state-of-the-art driver assistance and communication systems, including the Bluetooth online car phone that connects the Audi RS4 Avant wîth the Internet.
