Let´s begin with a brief history about the Audi RS2 Avant. It was based on Audi 80´s faster version, the Audi S2 Avant. The basis car was sent to Porsche´s facility in Zuffenhausen, Stuttgart. There it would get the right modifications so it could become a super estate car. Porsche added new bumpers, side mirrors from the 911, stiffer suspension, new brakes, and Porsche Cup wheels. The five cylinder 2.2 liter 20V Turbo engine was modified to have an output of 315 hp. The power was then delivered to all four wheels by a modified six speed manual transmission.
18" OZ Fittipaldi suits the car well.
The car weighs 1 595 kg and has performance figures that are quite impressive even by todays standards. It manages 0 to 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds, and is actually faster than a McLaren F1 from 0 to 48 km/h. The F1 manages to get there in 1.7 seconds, while the RS2 Avant manges it in 1.5 seconds. And just so you know, in 1994 the F1 was the fastest production car in the world.
An aggressive look from the front. You can clearly see the work of Porsche.
This car is a 1996 model in mint condition with smaller modifications. First of all the car is repainted in the original color. The engine is slightly modified with a MTM Chip, 3″ exhaust system and an adjustable turbo valve. A KW2 coilover set is fitted with new bushings and in front the Big Reds help to stop the car. The car rides on 18″ OZ Fittipaldi wheels which are 9,25″ wide and have 225/35-18 tires on them.
Black and grey leather and alcantara interior.
Lots of horsepowers in this 2.2 five cylinder engine.
