A closer look at the Audi RS4 Avant in Austin Yellow

The stunning Audi RS4 Avant painted in Austin Yellow has made a comeback in a fresh batch of images. It was the end of January when we shared a few images with the hot wagon prepared by Audi Exclusive and now it has returned to show us its striking body paint which is matched on the inside with body-colored accents noticeable on the dashboard, center tunnel and also on the door panels.

The Audi RS4 Avant is towards the end of its lifecycle taking into account the next generation A4 will be introduced in the months to come. Nevertheless, it still manages to remain a highly desirable fast wagon thanks to its 4.2-liter V8 naturally aspirated engine pushing out 450 HP (331 kW) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft). The next-gen model could make the switch to a 6-cylinder twin-turbo engine which will not only be more powerful but also significantly more efficient so expect fuel consumption to drop substantially compared to the current version which needs 11 liters / 100 km.

In terms of performance, the next generation Audi RS4 Avant will be quicker than today’s variant which runs the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 4.7 seconds and tops out at an electronically-capped 155 mph (250 km/h) or 174 mph (280 km/h) if you are willing to pay more.
