Audi RS4: New dimensions in dynamics combined with innovative ideas

Audi RS4
Middle East's self-proclaimed largest portal for marketing, advertising & media professionals "Strategiy" has an article about the Audi RS4.
New dimensions in driving dynamics combined with innovative ideas – exciting styling and a level of equipment that lives up to even luxury-class standards: the new Audi RS 4 combines the latest high-performance product from quattro GmbH in a thoroughbred sports saloon with supreme everyday driving qualities in the premium segment. The RS 4 is the new top-of-the-range model in the A4 series, a development all-new from the ground up.

Numerous technical innovations – many of which hail from motorsport – give the new Audi RS 4 its unique class and character. These features include the high-revving concept now being introduced for the first time in a production Audi, innovative FSI technology, as well as the latest generation of quattro drive with asymmetric/dynamic torque distribution. Developing a maximum output of 420 bhp, the V8 revs up to a speed of 8,250 rpm. With its displacement of 4,163 cc, this outstanding engine breaks through the magic barrier for a production saloon of 100 bhp per litre. The highly compact power unit reaches its peak torque of 430 Nm at 5,500 rpm. 90 percent of the total torque is available between 2,250 and 7,600 rpm. The result is excellent pulling power at all times, enabling the driver to drive in a relaxed style without frequent gear changes.

Audi's RS 4 saloon employs groundbreaking FSI technology. The petrol direct-injection unit delivers enhanced power output based on more efficient combustion of the fuel/air mixture. The engine is also responsive. The performance of the RS 4 clearly demonstrates these enhancements: it reaches the 100 km/h mark in 4.8 seconds, and 200 km/h in 16.6 seconds. Top speed is limited electronically to 250 km/h.

The efficiency of FSI technology has already been demonstrated impressively in Audi’s four-time Le Mans winner, the Audi R8.
