Thumbs up Return of the Audi RS4

The Audi RS4 is back, complete with a 450 bhp, handbuilt V8. It shares its engine with the V8 unit from the RS5. The estate version, or Avant, as Audi call it, has been launched first.

Return of the Audi RS4-2012audirs44.jpeg

Personal Opinion: I think it would have looked better if the front end was taken from the pre-facelift A4.

Took the words right out of my mouth.
While i had no idea this was on the cards and am absolutely delighted that the RS4 is back, the pre-facelift B8 version with a more aggressive kit than the S4 would have looked sumptuous.
Any idea of the 0-62 times ??? Should be interesting..i expect it to be marginally quicker to the ton than the C 63 thanks to Quattro

The link states a 0-100 time of 4.7 seconds. The pricing is about 76,600 Euro which puts it pretty close to the RS5. I know which one I'd rather have though.

While the RS5 does look phenomenal, I would take this if I had the choice. There's something very cool about estates, I think. When they come with this much power to shame some much more expensive and serious metal, then it's pure ice!

Hopefully THIS RS4 would be a worthy competitor of the M3 sedan and c63 amg. And as far as 0-60 is concerned i would assume 4.4 or 4.5 for the sedan. I do like the facelift but the front bumper is a little boring. Nonetheless, i am looking forward to the sedan and how it handles.
