The new 2007 Audi RS4 is the top-of-the-line vehicle in Audi's popular "four series". We decided to take this 420 hp monster out in to a dried lake bed for some traction, handling, and top-speed testing. Check out what the newest incarnation of the RS4 was made for...
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.
2007 Audi RS4
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.
Buying a Audi RS4 - Melbourne to Sydney Road Trip
Buying a Audi RS4 and then driving from Melbourne to Sydney, over 1000km's

fun, all distilled down to under 10 minutes of video.

Audi RS4: The Best RS Yet? - XCAR
Audi's quite a greedy company when you think about it. Not only has it
cornered the market on 4WD fun, but it's also got the whole 'subtle
brutality' thing down as well. The new RS4 is a perfect combination of
Audi's got form when it comes to fast estates -- 1994's RS2 was the firm's
first and was pretty cool. Co-developed with Porsche, it could hit 30mph faster than a McLaren F1.
That's... quite something, isn't it?
From then on Audi's portfolio of RS cars has been pretty impressive. The
first generation RS4 came around the turn of the century while its follow
up appeared (in saloon, convertible AND estate forms) in the middle of the
decade. Both RS4s were celebrated for being both incredibly practical and
entertaining to drive -- as such they hold their value irritatingly well.
This latest RS4 is, like its grandfathers, chuffing brilliant. Some have
criticised it for being a touch too aggressive, but they forget that most
people won't notice its angry looks. They'll pass it off as 'another German
car' or simply not notice at all. Well, that is until it moves because the
noise it puts out it simply incredible.
Its 4.2-litre V8 sounds, frankly, filthy. Unencumbered by turbochargers and other torque-Boosting, MPG stroking toys, it's a work of
sheer mechanical brilliance. 444bhp pours out of it and hurls you from zero
to 62mph in just 4.7seconds. That kind of acceleration from a car that
looks comparatively sedate is a little disconcerting. With the optional top
speed restriction increase you can set the RS4's top speed to 174mph.
That's a thing that simply shouldn't be. But I'm glad it is. Especially
when you throw in some rather entertaining handling...
The RS4 and cars of its ilk are wonderful examples of car companies doing
things because... why not? Audi has a 444bhp V8, why not stuff it under the
hood of a small family estate? What's the worst that can happen? People
decide they don't want to combine the banality of every day driving with a
massive engine!? Do you honestly think that'll ever happen? I don't.
Neither, thankfully, does Audi.
Long live the RS cars and their ridiculousness. Long live silly power in
subtle (ish) packages. Long live Germans having fun.
Engine: 4.2-litre V8
Torque: 317lb ft
Top speed: 174mph (with optional limiter raise, normally 155mph)

EXCITING Audi RS4 Ride with GMG Exhaust!
We stumbled upon an Audi Club meet and saw a few cars. The incredibly nice
owner of a tuned RS4 took us for a spin with some really exciting driving!
I loved the induction noise the RS4 makes, but the camera doesn't do it the
full justice.This german beast also has a GMG Exhaust set-up. Big thanks to the owner for such
an exciting ride! Tell me what you think? Be sure to watch in HD! Enjoy!
