New RS4

2013 Audi RS4 Avant pictures leaked

We don't need to wait anymore. The Audi RS4 Avant is here. It seems that Audi has finally used the natural aspirated 4.2 FSI V8 used on the Audi RS5. This engine produces 450PS (444bhp) and 430Nm (317.15 lb-ft).

As with the RS5 Coupe and Convertible models, the RS4 Avant will be offered with a seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission and Audi's quattro all-wheel drive system, while Ingolstadt's RS engineers will apply their experience on the suspension and the braking systems. An enormous 380mm carbon-ceramic brakes will be offered.

Separating the RS4 Avant from its less-powerful siblings will be a new aero kit that includes blistered wheel arches, bespoke front and rear bumpers, side skirts and a roof spoiler. The top end version of the A4 series will also get a modified front grille, RS-style twin oval tail pipes and 19 inches five-double spoke alloy wheels wrapped in beefier tires along with an enhanced interior featuring RS-specific sports seats and steering wheel.

More details coming at the Geneva Motor Show.

Good job you don't have anything to do with IT.

The pictures make it look quite subtle. I wonder how much the rear aches have grown in reality.

Are those pictures actually real, look fake to me.

If that is indeed the next RS4 I think its gone downhill when it comes to style.

Looks quite flat and boring. i hope the real thing is a little more aggressive and muscular.

Just under 5 seconds 0-60? No improvement from the last one then.

450hp from a normally aspirated engine? Good luck with the emissions.

Really disappointed. I am on the waiting list for one of these having been told it was a V8 turbo... Which would have been huge fun.

Looks are nothing special, if real, looks a little like a body kit on an S-line.

I thought i would never say it, but, If BMW make an M3 estate....

Take much notice of that. 0-60 will be low 4's at least with a dul clutch. Finally managed over 100bhp per ltr too which ain't too shabby.

Low 4's would be a good thing as would a PDK rivalling gearbox...

But from what I read it's 4.8 and the same box as the current RS5, which, whilst not as horrific as the V10 R8 box, was still not really special.

Early days and nothing confirmed 100%, but I had really hoped for a return to turbos...

Really? I'm the opposite. Thought the keeping of the v8 was a breath of fresh air, chances are the next m3 will sadly be turbo'd , I'm quite proud of audi for this. Not my cup of tea though, need rwd.

zero to 100 km/h (62mph) in 4.7 seconds +++ RS5 is 4.6 seconds (official figures)

Joy!

They've stuck flared arches on it.

Nice!

Also it seems that S-tronic will be standard with no manual option so that 0-60 must be for this gearbox option. You would have hoped they'ed have been able to get a bit more than 30bhp out of the engine for an all new model.

Not too keen on those squared wheel arches, looks a bit Subaru to my eyes. Doesn't look particularly special but I don't really know much about the RS heritage and if thats the point of them?

Originate from the Ur-Quattro. Last RS6 had them as well +++

I would expect the image is heavily photoshopped, and lots of shading added to the arches to make them look flared.

I'd be surprised if they look anything like as big in the flesh, if they are even flared at all.

Well the car is wider but by less than an inch so they're not gonna be huge.

Discussion about the possibility of flared wheel arches and emissions concerns points to people being not exactly excited about another over-performing but under-whelming Audi perhaps ?

I'd like a go in one, actually, anyone at Audi Press fleet reading this care to lend me one ? Promise not to break it.
