For weeks we’ve been hearing non-stop about the “Polar Vortex” – a wave of Arctic air that has crippled most of the United States. For non-meteorological types, this phenomena is both unwelcome and expensive, as cold weather has induced skyrocketing heating costs and dropped nearly a full inch of snow in some parts of the South – enough to cripple most of the area until Spring Break. In response I’d like to offer both the potential cause and the potential solution: the 2007 Audi RS4. You see, one of the things that is so much fun in a quattro is doing donuts in a parking lot. My guess is that the owner of this pristine RS4 may have gotten a little exuberant with the throttle on one of these adventures in the Great White North and viola! – instant Polar Vortex.
Okay, so that may not have been the cause. But the RS4 could be the solution. It’s got heated seats, for example, to help you through frigid mornings. It’s got all-wheel drive to help you conquer that light dusting of snow, Georgia. And if all else fails and you do get stranded, it’s about as red as red gets so search and rescue crews can find you in a hurry. This is pertinent consumer advise here! In all seriousness, the claimed 1 of 99 Misano Red RS4s is pretty darn stunning no matter what the conditions:

What’s not to like? All original down to the wheels, a rare to see color, one of the best sounding V8s ever, and enough bulges and flares to make a DTM car proud. After missing out on the Sport Quattro, the RS2, the S6+, and the B5 RS4, quattro GmbH brought the full fat B7 RS4 to the Americas, and the package was nearly enough to make you forget that we had long been forsaken. In addition to the already compelling spec sheet, this car also has new tires and the carbon cleaning completed. At $34,000, it’s one of the cheaper examples we’ve looked at too. These RS4s are coming tantalizingly close in price to the top of the market E46 M3s, long considered the go-to enthusiast car. I suspect we’ll start seeing more people jump ship to the quattro soon.
