Value Writeup

The 2007 Audi RS4 is a unique offering for those shopping for supercar performance in an ordinary appearing four-door sedan. Unlike the Mercedes-Benz or BMW offerings, you get Audi's vaulted quattro AWD system to apportion that prodigious power to all four wheels.

This is a car for the mature enthusiast who enjoys bouts with adolescent immaturity.

Model Highlights

To the ordinary consumer, the 2007 Audi RS4 represents a bit of a mystery. Why would someone pay $66,000 for the RS4 when the basic A4 goes for only $28,240? The A4's 2.0L 200-horsepower engine is a fine one, and who needs more?

Well some folks just like to go a bit faster than their fellow drivers. For them, Audi makes the 340-horsepower S4 V8. For $47,500 you get a four-door sedan that will surprise drivers of many midlevel sports cars at impromptu traffic light derbies.

But if you want to go hunting bigger game, Audi offers the $66,000 RS4. Audi has taken a lot of their Le Mans-winning racing technology and funneled it into this limited-production special. The 4.2L V8 will rev to a lofty 420 horsepower, and make fully 90% of its 317 lb-ft of torque at just a bit over 2,000 rpms.

But the RS4 is not just a one-trick pony. A fully hydraulic dynamic ride control not only limits body lean to enhance the RS4's cornering capabilities, but also delivers a surprisingly good ride.

Audi has tuned the RS4's quattro AWD system for maximum performance and it allows a bit more wheel spin for improved acceleration. The electronic stability control is also programmed to allow a smidge more tail-hanging-out fun, than in the A4. This 8.0 version of Audi's ESP even incorporates a brake rotor drying function in the latest potion of electronic wizardry.

There aren't a lot of overt touches to the outside of the RS4 to give away the performance potential. Larger tires, unique wheels and some potent exhaust pipes are the main clues to the curious onlookers. Inside you'll find a few more signs of just how unique the RS4 is. Genuine carbon fiber is used in tasteful doses as accents. The sport seats are built by the world famous Recaro brand. They provide opulent comfort and also hold you tightly when you take your RS4 through your favorite twisties. The pedals are covered with alloy bright work with rubber inserts for better traction.

There is even a "Sport" button that changes the throttle mapping for even faster response; and it opens the V8's exhaust system some for an even more ominous rumble.

The RS4 has the usual standard luxury touches one expects from Audi: sunroof, xenon self-leveling lights, power all around, climate control, rear park assist, and a six-disc CD changer. A Premium Package adds navigation, auto-dimming mirrors, a memory feature for seats and mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, Bluetooth, power rear sunshades, Sirius satellite radio, and a Bose sound system. Rear side air bags are also optional.

The Audi RS4 is not for everyone. But, for those lucky few who want AWD supercar performance, without the discomfort of a low-slung two-seater, the RS4 may be the peak of desire.

Model News

The Audi RS4 is a new model in the U.S. for 2007. It takes all of the basic goodness in the A4, adds the pin-you-to-the-back-of-your-seat performance of the S4, and then brings it up to mind-blowing levels. Where else can you find a 420 horsepower V8 engine that will rev to 8,250 rpms?
