In-game description

"A monster sports model from the talented teams at quattro GmbH."


The RS4 took the popular base A4 sedan and wagon to the ultimate extreme. When it made its introduction in 1999 by Audi's specialty-vehicle team, quattro,[1] it was immediately obvious from the car's exterior styling that there was something sinister about it. The RS4 sat wider, with the fenders flared an extra 1.2 inches to house the car's wider 255/35ZR18 tires. These tires came wrapped around giant 18" alloy wheels.

Under the hood was a turbocharged 2.7-liter 30-valve V-6 tuned to pump out 380 HP and 324.7 lb-ft[2] of torque, a drastic increase from the sporty S4's 261 HP. The 5-valve per-cylinder powerplant came mated to only a 6-speed manual gearbox. The factory claimed a 4.9-sec acceleration burst to 62 mph with a top speed of 155 mph. Not bad for a 5-person luxury car. In order to handle the extra power, significant reinforcements were made to the car's chassis, including totally retuning the suspension system.

When combined with the company's all-wheel-drive system, also called quattro,[3] the RS4 cornered like a genuine sports car, rivalling[4] those that came from Zuffenhausen. But because of its front-engine layout and AWD, the RS4, even in wagon form, exhibited a more predictable character when the road ahead meandered. The RS4 quickly developed a loyal following, and Audi's reputation as a maker of exciting, fast cars was cemented.
