2008 Audi RS4
There was no RS4 built on the Audi "B6" platform which served as the basis
for the Audi A4 between 2001 and 2005. However, after a long hiatus, the
second Audi RS4 quattro (Typ 8E), built on Audi's "B7" A4 platform, by
quattro GmbH in Neckarsulm, Germany (a wholly owned private subsidiary of
AUDI AG), was unveiled in February 2005 at Audi's 'quattro Night'
celebration at the company headquarters in Ingolstadt, Germany.
An Imola Yellow RS4 saloon came down a replica of a ski jump, then rotated
several times on an ice rink, before coming to rest in the centre of the
ice. After several minutes to allow the assembled media and guests to
examine the car, the RS4 climbed the ski jump and parked near the top. The
ski jump was a homage to an Audi commercial from 1986; where an Audi
climbed a ski jump in Finland to showcase its superior traction due to
Audi's 'trademark' quattro four-wheel drive drivetrain.
The RS4 became available to European customers in mid 2006. It was
introduced at the 2006 North American International Auto Show in January,
and arrived in June 2006 North America. The production run of the B7 RS4
was 2006 to 2008 inclusive, although only 2007 and 2008 model year were
sold in the United States. To date, approximately 10,000 B7 RS4s have been
built, of which around 2,500 are in the USA.
The B7 RS4 Cabriolet, available in Europe from late 2006 to 2008, was made
available as a model year 2008 vehicle in the USA.
