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.

As a beefed-up Audi S4, which is itself a faster A4, the RS4 is a sport version of the sport version of an Audi sport sedan. That means it better be pretty fast.

AUDI RS4(517hp) vs AUDI RS4(430hp)
Teste Realizado pela Revista 4 Rodas Tuning volume 6
No caminho para a pista de testes em Limeira, no interior de São Paulo, a tranqüilidade a bordo dos carros é absoluta. O RS4 desliza suave a 120 km/h pela rodovia dos Bandeirantes, perfeita para um calmo passeio dominical.
Já na pista, a história é outra.
Com o pé na tábua, as rodas grudam no chão (grudam mesmo, não é exagero) e o ponteiro move se para a direita com uma força brutal, mas é uma brutalidade tão afinada e tão harmônica que, mesmo a 230 km/h, tem-se a sensação de segurança total.
