Three limited-run Audi RS models are soon to be released, with only 250 of each to hit UK roads
So exclusive, in fact, that only 250 of each will be made available on the UK market.
It’s also the first time the five-door RS 5 Sportback has been available over here, with UK order forms previously limited to the three-door coupe.
The Sport Edition models are fitted with uprated 20-inch alloys, a panoramic sunroof and perhaps most popular among potential buyers, Audi’s fabled sport exhaust.
In addition, the chrome window surrounds, wingmirrors and badge are replaced with black detailing.
A number of the units will also get the usually-optional Comfort and Sound Pack, with its Bang & Olufsen sound system, rear-view camera and keyless boot opening.
Engines are unchanged from the ‘standard’ RS trims – all three are powered by the firm’s 2.9-litre V6 biturbo and almost 450bhp, capable of reaching 62mph from a standstill in around four seconds.
As RS models, they get the quattro all-wheel drive system for added performance and stability. As much as 60% of the engine’s power is sent to the back wheels, where it’s then split depending on which side has more grip.
And each of the three limited edition models has the adaptive dampers at no extra cost, which tweak the suspension depending on the driving mode that’s selected.
For drivers wanting a more athletic setup on the track, as well as a smoother ride around the doors, it’s a great addition.
Especially in RS 4 Avant and RS 5 Sportback form, this is a car with supercar performance but also everyday usability, thanks to the generous boot space and passenger comfort.
These are the only RS 4 and RS 5 models to be produced for the UK during 2019.
