Audi RS4 going 155 mph in the desert!

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...

Audi oversees worldwide operations from its headquarters in Ingolstadt, Bavaria, Germany. Audi-branded vehicles are produced in nine production facilities worldwide. Audi has been a majority owned (99.55%) subsidiary of Volkswagen Group since 1966, following a phased purchase of Audi AG's predecessor, Auto Union, from Daimler-Benz.[11] Volkswagen relaunched the Audi brand with the 1965 introduction of the Audi F103 series. The company name is based on the Latin translation of the surname of the founder, August Horch. "Horch", meaning "listen" in German, becomes "audi" in Latin. The four rings of the Audi logo each represent one of four car companies that banded together to create Audi's predecessor company, Auto Union. Audi's slogan is Vorsprung durch Technik, meaning "Advancement through Technology". However, since 2007 Audi USA has used the slogan "Truth in Engineering".[12] Audi is a member of the "German Big 3" luxury automakers, along with BMW and Mercedes-Benz, which are the three best-selling luxury automakers in the world.[13][14]





IDIOTS WITH AUDI: Car Fails of Audi Owners





The Baddest GTi on The Planet!
The Volkswagen R GTi premiered at the 2006 SEMA Show, but it still stands as the baddest example of the MKV GTi around. Lightened, widened, lowered, stiffened, and with 360 hp courtesy of APR Tuning, this sport econo car is the essence of hot hatch; doing 0-60 in 5.5 seconds. But the craziest part of this ride, might be its 2+2 race seating, complete with a custom harness system.





Audi RS4: The Best RS Yet? - XCAR
To see our latest film before it's on YouTube: http://www.carfection.com Subscribe for more XCAR videos: http://bit.ly/U9XDKc 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 both. 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.
