The perfect car for a quick getaway. Audi can’t help it but this canon with the name RS4 Avant is the perfect car for criminals to escape with. If this isn’t one of the most popular stolen cars yet, it sure will be in the future. This car is so incredibly fast, has a superb handling and we can understand that it won’t be a problem to lose the cops when you’re driving this car.
It’s the first time I drove the Audi RS4 Avant. Until that time, I never drove an Audi before, and especially no RS version. With some tension we drove to Leusden to pick up this beautiful blue RS4 Avant. The car was painted in Sepang blue with a pearl effect, a beautiful colour! People will see, hear and feel you overtaking them. They will see you because of the beautiful colour, hear you because of the soundtrack from the 450 hp strong V8 and feel you because of the enormous air stream at this high speed. Yes, the RS4 quickly conquered my heart. Despite the fact that the car sprints to 100 kph in just 4.7 seconds, it feels not like this inside the car but the car does have a big speed sensation. The grip in corners is astonishing thanks to the Quattro system. It’s no problem to keep your foot on the pedal, ESP will interrupt you sometimes but that’s nothing to worry about. You do need to worry when you’re used to the Quattro system and you step into a rear wheel driven car, this will cause the necessary problems. There will always be a war between rear wheel drive and four wheel drive but that’s not a bad thing because the world would be very boring if we would only see RS4’s or only M3’s on the streets. Only disadvantage of the Quattro system is the fact that you can’t drift with the car.
Audi managed to combine performance and dynamics with this car. The RS seats create a sporty character in the car and give you the perfect support when you’re racing with the car. It are ideal seats and it will be a hard job to find better ones. But that results in a big price but we think that it’s worth the money. As I already wrote, I haven’t driven an Audi ever before but when I took place in the car, everything worked very simple. From the navigation system and all the buttons on the center console. Every works very logical and is placed on a logical location. Just a simple knob which helps you with everything you need. The Bang & Olfusen sound system will also provide you with a great soundtrack, when you’re done with the sound of the V8. The most practical about this RS4 is the fact that you can travel with four persons without any problems, you can also take a lot of baggage with you and still drive 250 kph easily. When you pay an extra 2293 Euros, they will remove the limiter and you can even drive 280 kph!
Optical, the RS4 looks very brutal. There aren’t much options left to make the car look even better except for the Aluminum matte optional package and darkened windows. Of course, you can always mount another set of wheels to improve the looks of your RS4. This demo model has the ‘5-arm-rotor’ design wheels. Beautiful, open wheels which give you a good view at the ceramic brakes. These 20 inch wheels have 26,5 centimeters wide tires to make sure that the 450 hp is transferred to the road.
Driving the RS4 makes you feel like a king. We already wrote about the ingenious Quattro system and how it manages to keep you on the road under any circumstances. This gives you a lot of confidence. You can easily floor the pedal when you’re leaving a corner without any problems. This also thanks to the seven speed dual clutch S-tronic gearbox. This gearbox will select the perfect gear whenever you need it and it switches gears very, very fast. The Audi Dynamic Steering system gives you a great feeling through the steering wheel. You can steer very precisely and the car will always follow your instructions.
The RS4 will start at a price of 111,590 Euros. The version we drove costs almost 150,000 Euros. This is such a high price because of all the options on the car. The most expensive option are the ceramic brakes on this car. You can order these for an extra 10,000 Euros. Add the great seats and you spent already 15,000 Euros. Other options are the MMI Navigation plus, Sport undercarriage, Removing the limiter and the sport exhaust. All options cost you another 25,000 Euros on top of the basic price. It’s a lot of money, but you’ll definitely get a practical, fast and very brutal car for that money!
