529 HP Upgrade Makes This RS4 Avant Desirable, If You Dig Its Looks

If your idea of improving your ride includes more power and new wheels, then you’ll definitely like this Audi RS4 Avant.

With a little help from Wheelsandmore, which fiddled with the electronics of the twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6, the sporty premium compact estate now has 527 PS (520 hp / 388 kW) and 710 Nm (524 lb-ft) of torque to play with.

The extra 77 PS (76 hp / 57 kW) and 110 Nm (81 lb-ft) shaves a few tenths off the official 4.1-second 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration time, although the tuner didn’t disclose any numbers.

Moreover, with the addition of a new exhaust system, power increases by an additional 9 PS (9 hp / 7 kW), which, according to Wheelsandmore, makes the car more competitive with the MTM- or ABT-tuned Audi RS4 Avant.

The latter has 530 PS (523 hp / 390 kW) from a tuned ECU and a high-performance exhaust system, whereas the former can push out as much as 612 PS (603 hp / 450 kW) with a new turbocharger kit. MTM is also offering a 535 PS (527 hp / 393 kW) conversion kit, so this is probably the one targeted by Wheelsandmore.

Adjustable springs lower the ride height significantly, while the final upgrade is the fitment of 9×20-inch front and 11×20-inch rear wheels, called 6Sporz² and wrapped in 275/30 and 295/25 tires, respectively. 21-inch rims are also available, and both sets come in a variety of finishes.

    Ruined a good looking car with crappy looking wheels.
    I hadn’t noticed the rear bumper before, that looks like it sticks out quite far. Is that a chrome strip?
    Only other change I would make is to tint the front windows to match the privacy glass in the rear.

    ill take the power upgrades and skip the wheels. The RS4 is highly desirable, if only they would bring Avant’s to the US. #wewantanRS6
