In 1994, Audi tapped the engineering expertise of Porsche to develop the mad but engaging RS2, a 311-hp station wagon. Its 2.2-litre turbocharged engine was memorable for fierce reactions, big noise, and an uncompromising character. But when the RS2 concluded its limited run and the Audi 80 turned into the A4, we had to wait five years for the next “super Quattro”-the S4. That car somehow didn’t seem so mad: 250 horsepower from a twin-turbo 2.7-liter V-6, basically the same powerplant you’d find in the docile and luxurious A6 2.7T. That meant it was quick but also civilized: quiet, easy to drive, not really an Ingolstadt hot rod.
Then came the RS4 Quattro, the most powerful production Audi yet unleashed, producing 375 horses from its rather-more-stressed 2.7-liter V-6. Cosworth Technology, a division of Audi since 1999, has tweaked the intake and exhaust flow to the five-valve heads. Moreover, the crankshaft, the connecting rods, and the pistons are beefed up to withstand the larger KKK turbos. The result is a steady 325 pound-feet of torque from 2500 to 6000 rpm.
That stream of power definitely commands your attention. Appropriately launched, this little wagon claws its way to 100km/h in 4.9 seconds, and the speedo will show 160 km/h in a sniff less than 12 seconds. Although a chip limits top speed to 250 km/h, Audi’s engineers say they regularly saw 290 during testing at Nardo.
Officially, the RS4 is made not by Audi but by Quattro GmbH, the company’s in-house subsidiary that assembles cars to custom order. Alas, no RS4s are headed for America.
