    B9 RS4 Avant revealed

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    "After dropping the veils off the limited edition R8 V10 RWS last night, Audi has now presented the new generation RS4 Avant, at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.

    Motivation comes from a 2.9-liter TFSI biturbo V6 engine that makes 450PS (444hp) and 600Nm (443lb-ft) of torque, pushed to the Quattro all-wheel drive through a tweaked 8-speed automatic transmission, with optimized gear changing.

    The 0 to 100km/h (62mph) sprint takes just 4.1 seconds, and top speed is electronically limited to 250km/h (155mph), but it can be increased to 280km/h (174mph), with the optional RS Dynamic Package.

    By comparison, it's 0.1sec faster than the Mercedes-AMG C63 Estate, which carries a twin-turbo V8 engine, married to a 7-speed gearbox.

    Despite the impressive output and performance, the all-new Audi RS4 Avant is said to return an average fuel consumption of just 8.8 l/100 km (32.1 mpg UK / 26.73 mpg US), and to emit 199 g/km of CO2, in an efficiency gain of 17 percent, compared to its predecessor. Ingolstadt's new super wagon is also 80kg (176lbs) lighter than the car it replaces, as it tips the scale at 1,790kg (3,946lbs).

    When equipped with the standard RS sport suspension, the RS4 Avant sits 7mm (0.3in) lower than the basic A4 model with sport suspension. It can also be equipped with the optional Dynamic Ride Control, ceramic brakes, and RS-specific dynamic steering, with drivers able to define their own experience by using the standard dynamic handling system Audi Drive Select.

    Audi's designers took inspiration from the 90 Quattro IMSA GTO when sketching the fourth-generation RS4 Avant, which gets the typical honeycomb structure in the massive air inlets, specific singleframe grille, and 30mm (1.2in) wider wheel arches compared to the regular A4 Avant.

    At the rear end, the car has an RS diffuser insert, oval tailpipes and roof edge spoiler, while the 19-inch standard or 20-inch optional wheels and Nogaro Blue exterior color, which recalls the first-gen Avant from 1999, round up the list of exterior updates.

    Opening the door reveals the sport seats with optional honeycomb pattern, flat-bottomed sport steering wheel wrapped in leather, and RS-specific displays in the Audi Virtual Cockpit. There's also a head-up display that indicates G-forces, tire pressures, and torque. The new RS4 also gets the RS emblem on different surfaces, and can ultimately be customized to suite each driver's taste, through the brand's Exclusive program.

    Audi will open the order books for the new RS4 Avant this fall, as prices will start from €79,800 ($95,674) in Germany, and £61,625 ($81,235) in the United Kingdom. "

    Queue the bickering over whether or not this makes it to the states...

    Does look great, and the numbers are impressive. I won't lose sleep over being stuck with a V8 and a 3rd peddle though.

    Yep, we'll likely get the RS5 Sportback instead.

    Simplest answer is that the US market prefers SUV's to wagons. Audi sells tons of SQ5's, and would over any fast wagon variant here. They don't shift allroads too well here either. Sad :(

    And so ends any glimmer of hope anyone had.

    Seems crazy to me. Here in the NW, I see ugly ass Subaru wagons everywhere. A sporty luxury high performance wagon would sell in my opinion.

    Interesting read about importing cars to the US.

    http://jalopnik.com/here-are-the-fou...uni-1682067632

    However, there is one glimmer of hope. In 2006, a highly reputable Registered Importer in Baltimore called JK Technologies managed to convince the government that the “B5” Audi RS4 Avant was “substantially similar” to the A4 and S4 Avant models already sold here by Audi (despite protests from Volkswagen of America). That means two things: number one, the 2000-2001 Audi RS4 Avant is indeed legal for importation under this clause, with a few minor modifications. And number two: it’s possible to import a cool enthusiast car under the “substantially similar” clause. But it’s very, very unlikely.

    There would be a huge buzz/excitement if they finally sent some of these to the US. That alone would probably drive good sales and publicity.

    That's just silly. RS models are not high volume sale vehicles period. Give US enthusiasts a chance at least. Especially seeing as they killed every Avant option except one.

    Yet they felt there was enough "demand" to bring the RS4 Cabriolet here....

    there is no possible way that a B7 RS4 Avant would not have outsold the measly few hundred RS4 Cabriolets that they sold here. Idiotic.

    I got a quote from the federalizer in Baltimore for a B5 RS4 Avant import and legalization before started my B7 build. This was two years ago. $25k plus parts and labor. Plus shipping and either buy the the car sight unseen or fly to Europe to look and test drive.. of and also was told the process would take up to a year. This was a written quote based on model, year etc, not a generalization. So not for the faint of heart.

    All in I think I'd be about break even vs importing, but I got to build my car the way I wanted it.

    Just some food for thought.

    A buddy of mine had mentioned that he had chatted with a guy in the US a few years ago that had a B7 RS4 Avant. The "current" title of the car was wrecked/ salvage because he had purchased the RS4 Avant overseas, had it literally broken down and shipped over in multiple containers where it was eventually built back together over here. He never touched base on pricing but given it was a few years ago AND that the car is not 15 years old yet makes me think he bypassed the a few of the common rules. Ofcourse rebuilding a new car is a big hurdle only to have a wrecked/ salvaged title but it'd be 10,000% worth it.

    ....just imagine buying a gently used new RS6, having it broken down and rebuilt over here! Talk about a unicorn

    That's retarded imo.. A. Salavage title destroys value B. Such a high risk build.

    If you can settle for right hand drive they are giving away B7 RS4 Avant's in the U.K... like $20k literally gets you a good car.

    Mine for ref in case you haven't seen it..
