The B7 RS 4 in a word? Oof. A brawler in a business suit. A bull in a china shop..ok I don’t think that one quite fits. Regardless, this is one of Audi’s greatest Q-ships. Audi enthusiasts will spot one immediately but the average person? Not so much. They just see an Audi. From the bulging fenders to the big oval exhaust tips in the rear, this car oozes sexiness.
This particular example is painted Daytona Grey Pearl with Platinum leather/black piping. While I love the Daytona Grey, I’m not too crazy about the Platinum leather…it’s too light. Our quattro magazine editor had a 2009 Audi exclusive S5 with the pearl silver leather interior and while I loved the car (painted Jet Blue), I was always afraid of marking up the seats. After getting in/out with jeans on for awhile, you could see a bluish hue on the bolster…but that shouldn’t stop you from buying this brute.
There isn’t a lot of modifications to this car. The aforementioned big oval exhaust tips and in fact the whole exhaust system has been replaced with an aftermarket exhaust and S4-esque quad tips. Bilstein shocks and lowering springs and aftermarket tint are the only other modifications.
Here’s the ad:
This 2007 Audi RS 4 is finished in Daytona Gray Pearl over Platinum leather and is one of 663 US-spec examples produced for the model year. The 4.2-liter V8 sends power to all four wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission and quattro all-wheel drive. Modifications include Bilstein shocks and lowering springs, an aftermarket exhaust, and window tint. The car has spent time in California, Washington, and Oregon, and recent maintenance included a fluid service and an inspection. The selling dealer previously sold this RS 4 to the current owner in 2017 and is now offering it again on their behalf with a clean Carfax report and a clean Oregon title.
The B7 RS 4 features larger front air intakes and flared wheel arches accommodating a wider track than the contemporary S4. This example is finished in Daytona Gray Pearl, and paint protection film has been applied to the hood and front fenders. According to the seller, both front doors have been repainted, as have the rear passenger door and quarter panel. No accidents or other damage are listed on the included Carfax report.
Factory 19” alloy wheels wear Sumitomo HTR A/S tires that display date codes from 2017. Bilstein shocks and lowering springs have been installed, and aftermarket tint has been applied to the windows.
Platinum leather Recaro seats are contrasted with black piping and carpeting. Carbon fiber trim accents the dash and door panels, and additional amenities include heated seats, dual-zone climate control, and navigation. Wear is noted on the driver’s outer bolsters.
Just over 67k miles are shown on the digital odometer, approximately 2,500 of which were added under current ownership.
The 4.2-liter V8 was factory-rated at 420 horsepower at 7,200 rpm and 317 lb-ft of torque at 6,000 rpm . Power is sent to all four wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission and quattro all-wheel drive.
An inspection and fluid service were recently performed by the selling dealer, who describes some discoloration of the carbon fiber engine trim as well as scratches on the underside of the aftermarket exhaust system. Additional images showing the underbody and suspension are viewable in the gallery.
At the time of writing, there is only 1 day left for bids which currently stands at $25,875. For a relatively stock example with good paint, no damage, a couple of mods, and only 87k miles, this could be your ticket for being a wolf in sheep’s clothing. I really want this but I don’t think the wife would be too happy being that we have a mortgage to pay and kids in college…but you can sleep in it, right?
