The original RS4 set the template for the RS brand, combining enormous power and immense four-wheel-drive traction, the latter making the performance accessible to any driver, whatever the weather.
With supreme build-quality, the likes of which have been forgotten by modern manufacturing, the RS4 offers a mix of carbon fiber trim, a suede headliner and Recaro bucket seat inserts, an Alcantara steering wheel and other leather and smooth aluminium finishes so neatly seamed together.
And, where modern cars pout with snarling mouths and muscular creases, the RS4 has the veiled menace of a nightclub bouncer who’s found out someone has been harassing the bar staff with subtly executed wider arches, a lower ride height and gills.
One owner from new, exceptionally low kilometres and in impeccable and totally original condition, the car offered here is a 2001 Audi B5 RS4 Avant travelled just 30,000 kilometres.
Privately stored, regularly turned over and serviced only by the factory this car is as close to new as you’ll find- a credit to its last owner and an asset to the next.
All of the bespoke RS4 features are present and accounted for in this car from the real aluminium exterior mirrors and roof rails, to the single piece Xenon head lights, 18-inch multi-spoke alloys and carbon fiber engine cover to the Bose stereo and speakers and mint Recaro bucket seats. This car would have seemed out of this world in 2001.
The drive is also sensational. When the two turbos come on song, it has the effect of turning the scenery into smears in your peripheral vision, the beefed up 6 speed manual transmission feels fantastic to go through all the gears and the driving position is sporting and aggressive but comfortable.
Importantly, this car is accompanied by all of its original documentation from the log books and manuals, to the radio card, service receipts original keys and magazines that feature the RS4 as the fastest estate money can buy.
With 5 seats, a lot of practical, usable space, sensational build quality and performance that never ceases to amaze the driver, this low kilometre, single ownership and superb Audi B5 RS4 Avant is unrivaled on the road.
Just serviced by the factory and fitted with new tyres this rare, collectable and totally engaging modern classic is a must experience.
