Audi RS4 vs. Porsche 911 4S
High-performance models by Audi and Porsche battle on the streets of Germany
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 Avant quattro review with buying tips by Andrew Chapple of Volkswizard
This is our first video so please cut us some slack! The B7 Audi RS4 Avant continues to be name checked as a high point in Audi chassis development so it seems like a good idea to record this special Nogaro Blue RS4 Avant that we have in stock and to reacquaint ourselves with probably one of the best Audis of all time.
