In 1994 something quite special happened that created a class of car that is a particular favourite of mine. “Sleepers” as I like to call them, are relatively ordinary and practical cars that most people wouldn’t look twice at. However, little do they know that these cars are in fact performance monsters in disguise. The Audi RS2, developed by Porsche with its 2.2 litre turbocharged engine and 311BHP was a real wolf in sheep’s clothing. 20 years on and a special edition relives the glory days. Audi RS4 Avant Nogaro Harks back to RS2.
Called the Audi RS4 Avant Nogaro, this car will make its debut at the Geneva motor show. Sporting the same signature blue paint as the RS2 it honours, the Nagaro also ditches its chrome trim for matte black. Powered by a 4.2 litre V8 engine that has an output of 444BHP and 317lb ft of torque. Inside the interior possesses black leather and blue alcantara along with Audi’s MMI infotainment system. As you would expect, special badging can be found dotted around the Nogaro.
Audi have not said if the RS4 Avant Nogaro will be coming to the UK, but when it goes on sale in Germany it will have a price tag of £72,500.
