EXTERIOR
Presented in its trademark finish of Avus Silver, the Audi B5 RS4 harks back to the early days of the RS division, with a markedly more subtle approach than some of its contemporaries. Distinguishable from the standard A4 by its wider front track and flared rear arches, the RS4 still has a striking presence, with its ground-hugging bumpers, side sills, and rear spoiler all contributing to an aggressive stance on the road. RS4 badges front and rear help hint at it’s super car underpinnings packed into a usable and daily vehicle, however it’s not all about the power, with a large boot and roof rails making the car eminently practical.

Considering the cars age and mileage overall condition is fantastic; the paintwork displays a deep shine with a prominent sparkle from the metallic flake, with nothing more than a handful of minor stonechips to note.

INTERIOR
The interior of the RS4 is fairly simple by todays standard, with no sat-nav or panoramic roof, and yet it has aged extremely well with an incredible standard of fit and finish. Heated Recaro sports seats sit up front, upholstered in unmarked Onyx leather and supportive Hi Tech fabric, which offers supreme comfort and grip. Carbon fibre inserts across the doors, dashboard and central console provide a subtle contrast the the black leather and provide a distinctly premium feel to the space.

Amenities come in the form of digital climate control, cruise and a premium Bose sound system which make the B5 the ideal tool to tackle the daily commute or long distance road-trip

Overall condition of the interior is superb, especially for a car approaching 20 years old; free from any unsightly stains or tear the only real signs of wear are some more delamination of the gear knob and drovers door handle

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Fitted with a 2.7l bi-turbo V6 the B5 RS4 is famous for its usability, with good torque low down its performance feels effortless can be exploited an every day speeds. This example benefits from a full Milltek exhaust system and a suitable re-map from specialists MRC, helping the engine to breathe more freely and producing a fantastic noise, whilst also increasing output to around 420 bhp as shown by an accompanying Dyno print out.

With 10 stamps in its service book and a host of accompanying invoices, mechanically this RS4 has wanted for nothing throughout its life.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The 18″ 9-spoke alloys on this example are in fantastic condition, showing no curb or scuff marks and are offset wonderfully by hub caps finished in a darker shade of grey. Matching Michelin Pilot Supersport tyres have just been fitted to provide optimum grip for the quattro system.

Brakes have been recently overhauled with new discs and pads fitted all around less than 1k miles ago, as has the suspension, which has been upgraded to a set of Bilstein B16 coilovers for increased body control and comfort.
