The Audi RS 4 have squeezed their V8 motor into this compact luxury sedan. The Audi RS boasts a 313 Kw V8 attached to a fine-tuned version of the Quattro all-wheel-drive system that twists power to the rear wheels.

The RS 4 differs from the rather tame S4 via a sporting chassis, larger brakes and 19-inch wheels. These features creates a superb car in all the areas: incredible acceleration, effective braking and a superb ride and amazing cornering ability.

The Audi RS 4 sedan is also available in a Cabriolet version and like the S4, the convertible version has less-padded sport seats and a slightly different interior design.

As Stuttgart and Munich prepare for increasing ‘kilowatt battle’ with their respective new M3 and C63 AMG, Audi has a breath-taking weapon ready for battle.

Standard features include 19-inch wheels with 255/35 high-performance tires, Dynamic Ride Control suspension, xenon headlights, Recaro sport seats with power adjustment (the Cabriolet has less aggressive, non-Recaro seats) and front seat heaters. Napa leather upholstery, carbon-fibre cabin trim, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 10-speaker audio system with six-disc CD changer, a sunroof (sedan) and rear park assist are all standard.

A six-speed manual gearbox (the only transmission offered) sends the power to all four wheels through their ‘Quattro All-Wheel-Drive System’ which has a 40/60 front-to-rear power split in this application.

The RS 4 does 100 kmh in 4.5 seconds good enough to take-on both the new BMW M3 and Mercedes-Benz’s C63 AMG.

Safety features include stability control, anti-locking brakes, front-seat side airbags and full-length head curtain airbags are all standard.

Audi consistently produces some of the finest interiors with both models featuring outstanding materials and efficient controls.

As a serious performance car, the sedan as standard Recaro front seats.

Although the rear seat is fine for small children, adults back-seaters are likely complain about a shortage of leg-room.

Apart from the amazing acceleration, the RS 4 makes a strong showing in the braking and handling departments. Confidence and grip from the front tires are superb, balance is good and steering at speed is the best on all Audi’s.
