Who Needs Fireworks With This Fiery Audi RS4 In His Driveway?

Unlike the more recent B8 and B9 generations of the Audi RS4, the B7 was offered as a sedan, too, besides the Avant and Cabriolet body styles.

This meant it could compete directly against the likes of the BMW M3 E90 and Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG W204.

And the B7 RS4 isn’t just about a modified chassis, bigger brakes, specifically-tuned suspension large body kit and some changes made throughout the cabin, as is the norm with range-topping super sedans. No – what sets this one apart is the fact that it uses a naturally aspirated engine.

The 4.2-liter V8 unit was shared with the first-gen Audi R8 and was mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, whose job was to channel 420PS (414hp / 308kW) and 430Nm (317lb-ft) of torque to the Quattro all-wheel drive system.

For a car produced between 2006 and 2008, the Audi RS4 B7 is surprisingly fast, even by today’s standards. Naught to 100km/h (0-62mph) takes just 4.8 seconds and top speed is electronically limited at the, customary for all German cars except Porsche, 250km/h (155mph).

Now, you may wonder why in the world we seem to be yearning for the good old naturally aspirated V8, and the answer lies in the video that follows. The film reveals a tuned RS4 with an aftermarket exhaust system that sounds pretty wild. And when you can get your car to spit flames at almost every touch of the throttle, then you can justify the cost – at least to your petrolhead friends, if not your spouse…

As a bonus, the car is then shown going flat out on the Nurburgring, so you may want to take a break from whatever you were doing and check it out.

    The car is left hand drive in the video, but right hand drive in the photos. Fake news. I doubt the car can turn on the racetrack with a stance that low.
