Homage to a complicated classical – the Audi RS 4 Avant Nogaro selection

Posted on 05. Feb, 2014 by in Audi Canada

The customized Nogaro blue, pearl outcome paint finish is a many distinct visible vigilance of a anniversary model, and is also suggestive of a RS2. The support and use of a Singleframe grille, as good as a window container trims, are embellished high-gloss black, and a roof rails matt black. The RS competition empty complement terminates in dual oval, high-gloss black tailpipe trims.

331 kW (450 hp): a high-revving V8
Under a hood of a Audi RS 4 Avant Nogaro preference operates a high-revving V8 naturally aspirated engine with a banishment of 4,163 cc. The 4.2 FSI delivers 331 kW (450 hp) of energy outlay during 8,250 rpm, with rise torque of 430 Nm (317.15 lb-ft) accessible between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm. The musical eight-cylinder engine accelerates a anniversary indication from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 4.7 seconds and takes it to a governed tip speed of 280 km/h (173.98 mph). Its total fuel expenditure is 10.7 liters per 100 kilometers (21.98 US mpg) – for a CO2 homogeneous of 249 grams per kilometer (400.73 g/mile).

With a high potency and high tip gear, a customary seven-speed S tronic also contributes to fuel efficiency. The motorist can let a lightning-fast dual-clutch delivery change work automatically or change gears themselves regulating a selector push or a steering circle paddles.

The core of a quattro permanent all-wheel expostulate is a self-locking climax rigging core differential. The compress and lightweight member distributes torque during a default ratio of 40:60 between a front and back axles. This ratio can be broadly sundry as compulsory – with adult to 70 per cent of a energy going to a front and a limit of 85 per cent to a rear. The climax rigging core differential cooperates with a wheel-selective torque control, that creates doing during bend boundary even some-more energetic by selective, tiny stop impulses. Audi offers a competition differential as an discretionary serve that actively distributes a energy between a back wheels.

The customary apparatus of a Audi RS 4 Avant Nogaro preference also includes a Audi expostulate name energetic pushing system. This complement allows movement between 3 modes – comfort, automobile and energetic – for a characteristics of a electromechanical energy steering, a seven-speed S tronic, a accelerator and a RS competition empty system. And if a automobile is versed with Audi MMI navigation, there is also a fourth mode – particular – that can be configured by a driver.

Besides a competition differential, dual serve discretionary elements are accessible for Audi expostulate select. The energetic steering varies a steering ratio depending on a speed and countersteers with tiny impulses during bend limits. The RS competition cessation and with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) equalizes a hurl and representation for a resolutely sprung cessation by particularly automatic means.

The Audi RS 4 Avant Nogaro preference rides on 265/30 array tires. Behind a glisten incited finish 20-inch wheels in 5-V-spoke pattern radiate red-painted stop calipers temperament RS emblems. The stop discs featuring a call pattern are internally ventilated, seperated and assimilated to a aluminum stop front chambers by pins. Audi installs carbon-fiber-ceramic discs during a front spindle on request. The Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC) offers a competition mode and can also be wholly deactivated as required.

Black and blue: a interior
In a sporty black interior, Audi offers dual opposite upholstery versions for a electrically tractable S competition seats with their integrated conduct restraints. In both cases, a side sections are lonesome with black Valcona leather; a Alcantara fake fibers for a core sections and doorway trim inserts are colored possibly black as good or nogaro blue – in loyalty again to a Audi Avant RS2. The armrests are lonesome with black leather, with blue resisting stitching providing accents. Black or nogaro blue piping frames a black building mats.

Black leather with blue stitching also refines a steering circle edge and a selector push boot. Blue threads run by a CO inlays to lend them a really special shimmer. A badge on a RS selector push doorknob of a S tronic and a logos on a doorway sill trims impute to a special standing of a anniversary model.

In early 2014, a Audi RS 4 Avant Nogaro preference will arrive during dealerships as a singular special edition. Its bottom cost is 87,300 euros.

A complicated classic: a Audi Avant RS2 from 1994
The Audi RS2 from 1994 was a initial RS indication from Audi and also a initial high-performance indication from a code to mix full bland bearing with a energetic character, apropos a owner of a whole family of energetic models. Audi had grown a RS2 in team-work with Porsche, with public occurring during Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen.

Its coming alone was demonstrative of a energy of a initial RS model. The front fender featured absolute atmosphere inlets, and a grille was embellished black. The extraneous mirrors came from Porsche, a back was emblazoned by a full-width rope of light, and a emblems were large-sized. The RS2 optionally left a public line with an disdainful Nogaro blue paint finish, recalling a dual victories achieved by Frank Biela on a Nogaro circuit in a French Touring Car Championship of 1993.

The engine embodied Audi’s full imagination from furloughed automobile sports. The 2.2-liter five-cylinder engine delivered 232 kW (315 hp) by approach of a vast turbocharger, high boost pressure, stretched atmosphere ducting and blending engine management. At 3,000 rpm 410 Nm (302.40 lb-ft) of torque were available, with a limiter usually holding outcome during 7,200 rpm. The RS2 accelerated from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 5.4 seconds and reached a tip speed of 262 km/h (162.80 mph). A six-speed primer delivery delivered a energy to a quattro drivetrain, that had a manually activated locking differential during a back axle.

The cessation with a all-round cross links subsequent from a cessation of a technical starting basis, a Audi S2. The startle absorbers were even firmer and a springs were shortened. Porsche granted a 17-inch wheels, a large, internally ventilated stop discs and a red-painted four-piston calipers.

The interior was dominated by Silk Nappa leather and Alcantara in a tone anthracite, blue or china gray, and a Recaro seats were electrically adjustable. The instruments gimlet white dials, while tiny indicators on a core console kept a motorist sensitive about a oil pressure, oil heat and car complement voltage. CFRP inlays were optionally available.

Audi offering a RS2 during a bottom cost of DM 98,900. Within a construction duration of hardly dual years 2,908 units were constructed – some-more than a apportion creatively planned.
