Specification

The Audi RS2 Avant is a truly iconic car. It was collaboratively designed as a joint venture between Audi and Porsche and was produced from 1994-1995. The RS2 was based on an Audi 80 Avant and was Audi's first ever "RS" model and their first endeavour into a high-performance estate car. Both of these factors make the RS2 a significant moment in Audi's history as it kick-started their pursuits into fast-estate cars, something that has since become synonymous with the Audi brand.

The RS2 is powered by an inline-five cylinder turbocharged engine which Porsche modified considerably. These changes included a larger turbocharger, higher flow fuel injectors, a more efficient induction system, and a new low-pressure exhaust system. This was enough to power the RS2 from 0-62mph in 4.8 seconds and on to a top speed of over 160mph. In 1995 Autocar magazine even timed the RS2 from 0-30mph in just 1.5 seconds, faster than the McLaren F1 road car.

The RS2 features a six-speed manual gearbox which sends power to all four-wheels via Audi's trademark 'Quattro' system. Porsche also assisted Audi on developing the braking and suspension systems for the RS2, illustrated discreetly by Porsche-badged Brembo brake callipers which tuck away neatly under the larger 17" wheels from a 968 Clubsport of the era.

The lovely example we are offering is finished in the perfect Nogaro Blue paint (the colour the car was first offered in). It is a great opportunity to obtain a significant part of both Audi and Porsche's history and is ready to be enjoyed!
