The current in Audi’s long line of super-quick RS4 models has been spotted screening prior to it breaks cover at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in September. The biggest news for this Mercedes-AMG C63 competitor is that it’s expected to drop the old car’s V8 in favour of a twin-turbocharged V6. The Audi RS4 is a high-performance sports car based on the A4 including an effective engine and all-wheel drive. It’s most typically seen in the form of an useful Avant estate model and equals the likes of the BMW M3 and Mercedes-AMG C63.
2018 Audi RS4 Styling
The upcoming 2018 Audi RS4 will look much more aggressive than the S4 shown above. The bodywork will grow a selection of large air intakes and vents to help cool its more powerful engine and four swollen wheel arches to cover a set of larger alloy wheels. The model appears to wear a comparable front bumper to the recently released Audi RS3 and, as an outcome, need to feature contrasting black trim and a popular quattro logo listed below the grille. At the rear, the standard A4’s round exhaust pointers have been stretched into larger oval shapes for this potent RS model however, besides a slim brand-new diffuser, the rear bumper appears mainly the same.
2018 Audi RS4 Interior
Besides a few stylish touches, we don’t anticipate the 2018 Audi RS4 cabin to differ greatly from the basic A4’s impeccably durable interior. A flat-bottomed steering wheel and a selection of RS badges should help your travelers tell it apart from less powerful models while Audi’s excellent Virtual Cockpit digital instrument display system should be used as standard
2018 Audi RS4 Engine and Driving
Fans of husky eight-cylinder engines might be disappointed to hear the old car’s 4.2-litre V8 will be ditched in favour of a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 producing more than 450hp. This unit, combined with Audi’s legendary quattro all-wheel-drive system, should use adequate grunt and grip to provide the 475hp C63 and 431hp M3 a major run for their loan. Alongside a scaled down engine, the RS4 might be fitted with electrical turbocharging technology– already included to the SQ7 SUV. This high-tech feature aims to offer near-instant throttle response from low revs– removing the lag normally associated with high-powered turbocharged engines.
2018 Audi RS4 Price and Release Date
We anticipate the brand-new 2018 Audi RS4 might make its very first public appearance at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2017. When it goes on sale in late 2017 or early 2018 we expect it to cost around ₤ 60,000 to compete with rivals from Mercedes and BMW.
