With Audi already confirming the debut of the new RS4 Avant at next week’s Frankfurt Motor Show, these will be our final spy shots on the upcoming M3 fighter.
Fast estates don’t come much more iconic than the Audi RS4 and judging by the photos, the German car maker appears to have kept all the visual traits that make this fast wagon instantly recognizable.
The iconic wider fenders, complete with the aggressive front and rear treatment will make the 2018 Audi RS4 one of the best-looking models in the segment. The dual oval exhausts along with the big wheels complete the picture of the new fast Audi. This is also the first time we get to see in detail the design of the front bumper.
The powertrain will be the same with the Audi RS5, meaning a twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 with 444hp (450PS) and 446lb-ft of torque. Power will be transferred to all four wheels of course via an eight-speed automatic gearbox, with the Quattro all-wheel drive system sending more power to the rear, just like in its two-door sibling.
Headline figures will include a sub-4sec time for the classic 0-62mph (100km/h) procedure and a limited 155mph top speed. Customers will be given the option of a higher top speed (174mph – 280km/h) through the RS Dynamic Package, which will also include a rear sport differential.
Stay tuned for the full details of the 2018 Audi RS4 in the coming days.
