EXTERIOR
Porsche CEO Ferdinand Piech was to realise his idea for a fast estate with this skunkworks project – the RS2. There is no mistaking the Porsche influence with this in-house project known internally as ‘P1’; mirrors, side lights, wheels and brakes all migrating from the neighbours parts inventory.

Unassuming in a coat of Ragusa Green paint the boxy silhouette of this RS2 easily flies under the radar, coming to life in natural light when the metallic flake shimmers to unveil the depth of the gorgeous green finish. Having covered just over 50k miles from new and been treated to a paint refresh in late 2020, condition of the car is superb, showing free from any major stonechips or blemishes. Trims, grilles and surrounds have aged well whilst lights and lenses remain moisture free, ensuring this RS2 wears its 27+ year on the road extremely well.

INTERIOR
Unapologetically 90’s the interior of the RS2 is refreshingly sparse, with vertical vents, rectangular head rests and white dials creating a retro yet useable space. Holding both driver and passenger the period Recaro sports seats hug the midriff noticeably well, and given the cars low mileage present impeccably, free from any noticeable bolster wear with the leather upholstery still shows with smooth and satin finish.

Carbon fibre inlays throughout the dashboard give a nod to the performance potential on the RS2 whilst the simple layout of the centre console, gearstick and thinned rimmed steering wheel make the interior a distraction free, driver focused space.

Despite being a product of the mid 90s this Audi still comes with all the essentials including electric windows, electric sunroof, power steering, air conditioning and an uprated retro look Becker Grand Prix Radio which features a CD Player and Bluetooth compatibility.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Used and developed by Audi since the late 70s the turbocharged 5-cylinder format has become synonymous with the RS brand and rallying fans worldwide, storming to world championship success in its legendary 600 bhp fire breathing Group B guise. Co-designed with Porsche the 2.5L unit in the RS2 is incredibly versatile and potent, using a KKK turbocharger that was 30 per cent larger than the one found in the Audi S2 to produce 315 bhp and 302 lb⋅ft of torque.

Paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox and Audi’s patented four wheel drive system the end result was a truly rapid machine with a top speed of 158mph. More impressive still are the cars acceleration figures, managing 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds and 0-30 mph in just 1.5, which was said to be faster than the fabled McLaren F1, the RS2 solidified its reputation as a performance icon.

Having covered just over 50k miles to date mechanical condition of this RS2 is second to none, with a comprehensive history of 18 serviced which includes a major service and cambelt less than 2k miles ago.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Nowhere is the collaborative work between Audi and Porsche more evident than in the wheels and tyres, with a set of 17 “Porsche Cup wheels with Audi branded centre caps fitted to each RS2 as standard. These wheels present in excellent condition, free from and curbing or fading, and wrapped in matching Continental tyres with ample tread remaining all around.

Showing through the wide spokes the Red Porsche branded Brembo Callipers are evenly matched to the performance available, pulling the car up strongly with a minimum of fuss, whilst the Porsche designed sports suspension system sits 40mm lower than the standard Audi 80 to better manage body roll whilst still providing a sufficiently comfortable ride.
