2007 Audi RS 4 Review

 

High-Speed Sedan

In short: A V8-powered, high-performance super sedan.

A 420-horsepower V8 in a compact Audi A4 body? Sounds fast and it is, busting up to 60 mph in a scant 4.8 seconds. The RS 4 also benefits from a specially-configured rear-biased all-wheel drive system that results in a well-balanced ride with great traction and agility. Matching speed and power with excellent performance handling, this fierce German sedan should keep up with many of the world's top sports cars.
