A quarter of a century ago, the RS 2 Avant kicked off the success story of Audi’s high-performance models. As a tribute to the first high-performance station wagon from Audi, Audi Sport is releasing an exclusive equipment package for the TT RS Coupé, RS 4 Avant, RS 5 Coupé, RS 5 Sportback, RS 6 Avant, and RS 7 Sportback models.
Commenting on the launch, Oliver Hoffmann, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH told us: “All our RS models are strong characters. The RS 2 Avant from 1994 already represented our philosophy of a strong performance, individuality, and full everyday usability. This is basis of our success story.” He later added: “For our anniversary package, we placed the focus on individuality. The exterior and interior make reference to our first RS model, the RS 2 Avant.”
The RS 2 Avant from 1994 established a completely new segment as the first Audi high-performance estate. With its 311bhp 2.2-litre five-cylinder engine, its extravagant interior design, and the vibrant special paint finish in Nogaro Blue, it made a bold statement. The RS models that are now offered with the anniversary package can now also be painted in the iconic Noggy Blue upon request. Mythos Black, Nardo Grey, and glacier white are available as alternative colours.
For the exterior, the anniversary package combines a matt aluminium look with gloss black. The front blade, the vertical webs on the RS 4, RS 5, RS 6, and RS 7, as well as the inlays in the side sills and the horizontal web of the rear diffuser also feature a matt aluminium look. The famous four-rings and RS logos as well as the rear wing of the TT RS Coupé and the exterior mirror housings are designed in gloss black.
An exclusive RS anniversary logo showing the number ‘25’ is projected onto the ground when the doors are opened and is also featured on the wheel centre cover. To match the exterior, the wheels are designed in a two-colour look featuring silver and gloss anthracite. The ‘anniversary package 25 years of RS’ is available for order in Europe now.
