2007 Audi RS4

rs4

In 2007, Audi fans had a giant reason to celebrate. No, they weren’t jumping for joy because their insurance company finally sent them their check for their B5 S4 that was stolen for the fourth time. Audi was bringing back the RS4. Even better, it was coming to North America. After taking a sabbatical in the B6 generation, the legendary RS4 was coming. 6-speed manual. 420-hp direct-injection V8. 8000 rpm redline. 58/42-percent front-to-rear weight distribution. Flared fenders. Honeycomb grille. This was it. Carbon-buildup be damned and yeah, it wasn’t the avant. This was it. Finally the AWD super-sedan was coming. Nine years later if you are still dreaming about the RS4 without the nearly $70,000 price tag, this example in Michigan might be right up your alley.

4WD Week: 2007 Audi S4

The Audi S4 is no stranger to GCFSB like some of the other Volkswagen rarities we’ve had this week, but as the original all-wheel drive sports sedan I think it certainly deserves a place here. There have been many variations of the S4, and all of them have their strengths and following. While I’m a big fan of the turbocharged inline-5 models that started it all there is still a side of me that just loves that V8 tune being pumped out of the back of the B6 and B7 models. Even within those two sub-models, there have been a few different types and this is one of them. Dubbed the “DTM” model, the last of the run S4 V8s packed the normal 340hp rev-happy 4.2, but added the sports differential and suspension upgrades from the RS4 and Quattro 25th Anniversary model as well as some trick (if in questionable taste?) carbon fiber bits. In my preferred shade of Sprint Blue, this car is ready to rock your commute:

While the car looks pretty stunning, there are a few things that confuse me about this listing. First, the seller states the photos were taken prior to detailing. Why? Why would you go through the listing then say it’ll be detailed later? Then there is the price – $29,995 puts this car squarely into RS4 territory. Granted, the RS4 you’d get for low-30s wouldn’t be the nicest in the world but it’s a much more special car than the regular S4. Then there’s the second problem – the other S4 models. If the Avant isn’t more desirable than the DTM model, then the 25th Anniversary model surely is. Were I looking for a limited run regular S4 then, I’d really rather have the wagon or the better-wheeled and more rare 25th model. Still, this is a great car to look at – I just wish the price was more in line with the market.

V8 Week: 2007 Audi RS4

When we at GCFSB.com wanted to do another theme week, we really wanted to cross marques, and what better way than with a engine layout that is used pretty universally? Audi started it’s love affair with the V8 engine back in 1988-1989 with the release of the then-revolutionary V8 quattro. Boasting reasonable performance, high-class luxury, and go-anywhere in anything quattro all-wheel drive, the V8 quattro would become a cult-classic for Audi fans. Since then Audi’s V8 engine has increased slightly in displacement and sprouted more valves, but the heart of these cars has most been assisted by modern electronics that allow cars like the RS4 to pump out an incredible 420 horsepower. Though they more recently have backed away from V8 engines in an effort to gain fuel economy, Audi’s legendary RS4 V8 was shouty and sonorous at the same time, producing notes that few other engines can on the way up the tachometer. And while there are few RS4s who’s exterior match the shoutiness of the engine, today’s example of a Sprint Blue RS4 is shouty for all the right reasons:

Blue has been the choice for fast Audis since the launch of the legendary RS2. Sure, that blue has changed from RS Blue to Nogaro, and then again to Sprint Blue on the B7s, but the idea remains the same. Like a red Porsche, pulling up anywhere in one of these blue Audis tells the world you mean business, but in a mostly polite way. The RS4 is an incredible performer with reasonable practicality as a daily driver, but is certainly special enough to stand out in the crowd. In my opinion, too many of these cars were specified in silver, grey or black – to me, they just look better in loud colors. The only one I have seen that I desire more than this car is the one special order Viper Green RS4; but day to day, this would do nicely, thank you very much.

The best known issue with the RS4 is carbon buildup, and worryingly there is no mention of this car being serviced, though most of the RS4 community seems to feel that service price is less of a big deal than the community that doesn’t own them. Either way, plan on getting it corrected in the future. It’s nice to see the original alloys which seemed to disappear quickly from many; here’s a hint – we’ll want them in the future, so if you buy this car please keep them! Otherwise the car seems to be in great shape as it should for the quite reasonable mileage that’s been put onto it. Pricing seems pretty much spot on the middle of the market, and as the blue seems to command a premium over some of the other colors I’d say in the higher 30s this car is pretty well bought.
