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).

At the stage of sketching we selected 2 options: Option A is an electric truck autonomously driving for highways; Option B is an electric truck show car. So, we decided to develop both directions to choose the best one. Plan failed :/. We were unable to choose the best one, so we are presenting you both versions. Part of the project was already published in social networks. We are grateful to all of you, who supported us, commented the project. You, guys, contributed to the final result. And we are wondering, which option you like more? Please, write in the comments: A or B. Thank you!





Audi RS 4 rollover at Willow Springs Raceway
Turn 9 at Big Willow claims another car. So, before the internet tells me how much I did wrong - let me tell you that I know I messed up. I've been tracking for eight years, have been to this track numerous times in a number of cars and know T9 is a very late apex, decreasing radius turn. Here's my take. In this case, I turned in too early and too sharply. It was early in the day and early in the session, so I wasn't up to full speed and felt I had enough track to recover. The car tracked out and I maintained the steering angle I normally would for track out, pointing me down the track toward the right side to set up for T1. Though, in this case, the angle was too steep and the grip too low, so the car tracked out a foot too wide. I know the protocol is to just go straight off with two feet in, and in hindsight I should have done that. However, in the moment, it wasn't apparent the car was going to go wide until the very last instant, leaving me no chance. While I don't think I over-corrected, the steering wheel was definitely turned to the right some degree to get the nose pointed back down the straight. Once the left side dropped, the car shot back across the track and I tried to get the car to go off straight, but it was too late and there was no grip for steering or braking inputs to have any effect. I had a chance to save it mid-corner, too. I had lifted mid-corner to get the car tucked back in toward the apex, but I got on the throttle too quickly and too aggressively, also forcing the car to push wider on exit. Had I laid off the throttle longer, or even tapped the brakes to help with front-end grip, and got the car pointing down the track before getting on throttle, I could have saved the corner -- and the car -- that way too. Yes, I made an error. It's not my first and it won't be my last. In the grand scheme, dropping two off isn't an egregious mistake, but here at Willow Springs in turn 9, it's one with grave consequences. Thanks for watching. Be careful out there! Hope you can learn from this mistake as I have. For those curious, captured with a GoPro HERO4 Silver, mounted on the outside of the front windshield. Camera survived unscathed and still attached, though it stopped recording when the car landed on the roof, probably hitting the shutter button.





► 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.
