Being an RS model the new RS4 Avant's bodywork is suitably enhanced. "The Audi RS 4 Avant is our RS icon with an incomparable history", commented Stephan Winkelmann, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH.

Hot on the heels of Monday's debut of the new rear-wheel-drive R8 supercar, the Audi Sport division has since revealed a new generation of the RS 4. It will come with a 2.9L TFSI engine that delivers 450 hp and 600 Nm of torque, and it gets quattro hence the power of the V6 biturbo goes to all four wheels.

The wheelarches are wider and, at the rear, the huge diffuser set into the bumper is accompanied by hefty oval tailpipes and a roof spoiler. Its peak torque of 600 Nm (442.5 lb-ft) - 170 Nm (125.4 lb-ft) more than the previous model - is available across a broad engine speed range from 1,900 to 5,000 rpm. As an option, buyers can choose to lift the top speed to 174 miles per hour.

However, before the incident, Guardiola had set up his team to strangle the match and his side were in control. Gabriel Jesus netted City's second in first-half stoppage time and again eight minutes into the second half.

In the RS 4 Avant, the package will deliver 0-62 miles per hour acceleration in 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 155 miles per hour. It may be less exciting than the business of going quickly, but a fuel-economy figure of 32.1mpg represents a big improvement over the outgoing vehicle and the 199g/km Carbon dioxide emissions figure beats the previous V8's by 17%.

The power of the 2.9 TFSI biturbo is supplied to the permanent all-wheel drive via an eight-speed tiptronic transmission with optimised ratios.

As standard, United Kingdom cars come with Audi Virtual Cockpit - a fully-digital instrument binnacle - as well as a sport differential and 19-inch alloy wheels. For a bit of extra poise, you can specify Dynamic Ride Control for the suspension, ceramic brakes and sportier steering. The driver sits behind a flat-bottomed steering wheel adorned with the RS emblem - also seen on the gearshift gate and illuminated door sill trims.

The air begins to spiral toward the centre of the disturbance, which graduates to a tropical depression and then a tropical storm. Katia is moving slowly toward the east-southeast near 5 miles per hour , and little motion is expected during the next day or so.

You can order one "from the fall onward", according to Audi with deliveries starting in early 2018. The styling packages gloss black, carbon with aluminium attachments and carbon with black attachments provide further scope for customization.
