Four Generations Of the Audi Avant [Video]

The Audi Avant is a well packaged vehicle offering everyday practicality however the Audi RS speaks to another side, the added need for something special on that endless and rather endless commute, Sheer Power and Excitement.

There is just something about the Audi RS models that makes one quiver and stand in awe every time you see one, perhaps its the engine sound often heard from a distance, that growl that just makes the hair on your skin stand on end.

The video shows the four generations of the Audi Avant starting from the 1994 Audi RS2 up to the new 2012 Audi RS4 Avant. All models which would be held in high esteem if they were parked in our garages, especially the RS2.

2013 Audi RS4 Avant

2013 Audi RS4 Avant

The new generation Audi RS4 Avant was revealed last week at the Geneva Motor Show.

The RS4 Avant is powered by 4.2 liter V8engine, similar to that on the Audi RS5, producing 331Kw at 8,250 rpm with a maximum torque of 430Nm.  The RS4 Avant accelerates  from zero to 100km/h in a claimed 4.7 seconds.

The 4.2 litre engine is coupled to a 7-speed S tronic gearbox and a four wheel drive quattro system which typically sends 60 percent of its power to the rear axle and 40 to the front. This split can change to as much as 80 percent to the rear axle and 60 percent to the front axle depending on road conditions. All of which ensures complete stability and traction whatever the situation.

 According to Carmag, the RS4 Avant will be introduced in South Africa in early 2013.
