What you’re looking at here is basically a brand spanking new Misano Red Audi RS4 B5, built about 15 years ago.
This is of course the “original” RS4 Avant quattro, first introduced by Audi in late 1999 before going into production a year later. It’s the real successor to the RS2 Avant and just slightly over 6,000 unit were ever made during its 3 year life-span.
Its S4-sourced 2.7-liter biturbo V6 engine produced 381 PS (375 HP) and 440 Nm (325 lb-ft) of torque, resulting in an impressive 0-100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration time of just 4.9 seconds and an electronically-limited top speed of 262 km/h (163 mph).
This particular one, sold by Autoleitner, is not only in mint condition, but is also extremely well-equipped with things like automatic air-conditioning, CD changer, cruise control, Bose sound system, electrically-adjustable Recaro sports seats with lumbar support, power sunroof, ESP, sat-nav, 18″ wheels, sports suspension, xenon headlights, side airbags and plenty more.
The car truly looks like it just left the factory, yet its €99,500 price tag might turn a lot of people off, unless they’re die-hard Audi fans or collectors and they’ve actually been waiting to find a first-gen RS4 in perfect condition.
Would you rather have this over something a lot more modern and undoubtedly quicker?
