New 2012 Audi RS4 Avant

The first pictures of the Audi RS4 Avant have been leaked, ahead of its debut at the Geneva Motor Show. Looking tastefully restrained, the wagon has a new front fascia with a honeycomb grille and larger air intakes. Out back, there's a tailgate-mounted spoiler, a redesigned rear bumper and two massive Exhaust tips. We can also see LED-infused headlights, high-performance brakes, matte aluminum accents and 19-inch alloy wheels. Inside, the cabin features sport seats, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and alloy pedals. Power will reportedly be provided by a 4.2-liter V8 engine with 450 PS (331 kW / 444 hp) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque. It will be connected to an S tronic transmission which is backed up by a quattro all-wheel drive system. This could enable the model to rocket from 0-100 km/h in 4.7 seconds, before hitting a top speed of up to 280 km/h (174 mph).

► 2013 Audi RS4 Avant [450 hp]
http://www.youcar.tv The Audi RS 4 Avant uses the same high-revving, normally aspirated V8 engine that powers the RS 5 Coupe. The 4,163 cc powerplant produces 331 kW (450 hp) at 8,250 rpm for a specific output of 108.1 hp per liter. Its maximum torque of 430 Nm (317.15 lb-ft) is available from 4,000 to 6,000 rpm. The responsive V8 with its red-painted cylinder head covers accelerates the RS 4 Avant from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 4.7 seconds on its way to a governed top speed of 250 km/h (155.34 mph). This can be increased to 280 km/h (173.98 mph) upon request. Hand-built at Audi's plant in Györ, Hungary, the 4.2 FSI engine combines its impressive power with exemplary efficiency, consuming on average less than 11 liters of fuel per 100 km (21.38 U.S. mpg). With its high efficiency and long top gear, the standard seven-speed S tronic also contributes to the vehicle's good fuel economy. Drivers can let the lightning-fast dual-clutch transmission shift automatically or change gears manually using the selector lever or the paddles on the steering wheel. For explosive starts, drivers can also activate Launch Control, which manages the engagement of the clutch at an optimum starting speed and minimum wheel slip.
