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).

Audi RS4 V8 Engine removal and strip timelapse
Another timelapse from me. This time we have a very poorly Audi RS4 V8 that
was recovered in with a knocking engine after being driven through flood
water. As we suspected a bent conrod, a compression test was carried out
which confirmed low compression on cylinder one.
The engine was removed and stripped to see if any other damage had been
done and to work out the most economical repair. In this case, with damage
to the crankshaft and to the cylinder bore a replacement Short engine was
the most economical option.
The following took place over around 40 Hours, hope you enjoy it!
Thanks for watching!
► 2013 Audi RS4 Avant [450 hp]
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.

► 2013 Audi RS5 - Full Throttle
The Audi RS 5 Coupé uses a high-revving, normally aspirated V8 displacing
4,163 cc. This engine is closely related to the V10 that powers the R8
high-performance sports car. The 4.2 FSI delivers 331 kW (450 hp) at 8,250
rpm, with the peak torque of 430 Nm (317.15 lb-ft) available between 4,000
and 6,000 rpm. The engine has a specific output of 108.1 hp per liter of
displacement. The potent response, the eager revving and the rich,
melodious sound mark the V8 as a thoroughbred racing engine.
Hand-built at the plant in Györ, Hungary, the 4.2 FSI launches the Coupé
from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 4.6 seconds. Audi will increase the
electronically governed top speed from 250 to 280 km/h (155.34 to 173.98
mph) upon request. Thanks to the combination of technologies from the Audi
modular efficiency platform, which also includes a recuperation system, the
high-tech V8 consumes significantly less fuel on average than its direct
