The Audi RS 4 Avant uses the same high-revving, normally aspirated V8 engine that powers the RS 5 Coupe. The 4,163 cc powerplant produces 331 kW (450 hp) at 8,250rpm for a specific output of 108.1 hp per litre. Its maximum torque of 430 Nm (317.15 lb-ft) is available from 4,000 to 6,000rpm. The responsive V8 with its red-painted cylinder head covers accelerates the RS 4 Avant from 0-100km/h in 4.7 seconds on its way to a governed top speed of 250km/h. This can be increased to 280km/h upon request.

With its high efficiency and long top gear, the standard 7-speed S-tronic also contributes to the vehicle’s good fuel economy. Drivers can let the lightning-fast dual-clutch transmission shift automatically or change gears manually using the selector lever or the paddles on the steering wheel. For explosive starts, drivers can also activate Launch Control, which manages the engagement of the clutch at an optimum starting speed and minimum wheel slip.
