Audi RS4 Avant: Not coming after all?

Audi RS4 Avant

Streed word has it that the rumored B8 Audi RS4 Avant is in dead waters. Read on for more intel!

Car & Driver’s resident German insider Jens Meiners has published his monthly report from the continent and we’re concerned about one of his assertions. If Meiners’ assertion is correct, the new B8 RS 4 program has been killed in the wake of Audi’s decision to build a next-generation RS 6. It’s assumed the RS 6 will be powered by a more potent version of the new 4.0 TFSI already seen in the S6. That engine is already tuned to greater levels in the S8 and the same is expected when it appears in the Bentley Continental on the Crewe’s Geneva Motor Show stand this spring.
