Nogaro Blue and Avant brings the killer Audi RS 6 Avant RS Tribute edition to mind but this isn’t that. 25 Tribute editions made it to the States but I wonder how many B8 A4 Avants in Nogaro Blue are here? I can’t remember when I last saw a B8/B8.5 Avant that wasn’t an allroad and I live on the East Coast where wagons are almost everywhere and in fact, this Avant is located in Maryland. Not only is this an Audi exclusive but there are goodies like the S4 Alcantara seats and the Alcantara R8 steering wheel plus some aftermarket power options. Here’s the ad:
This 2012 Audi A4 Avant S-Line is finished in Nogaro Blue over two-tone black and blue upholstery and is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four paired with an eight-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission and Quattro all-wheel drive. The car was equipped from the factory with the Prestige Package, S-Line Plus Package, Sport Package, Audi Drive Select, and a panoramic sunroof. Modifications include installation of S4, RS4, and R8 GT interior components along with an APR turbo upgrade, a Wagner front-mounted intercooler, an 034Motorsport chassis X-brace, KW V3 coilovers, and RS4 brakes. The car was reportedly purchased new by the seller in Florida and was relocated to Maryland in the mid-2010s. The rear subframe is said to have been replaced in 2021, and an oil change was performed in preparation for the sale. This A4 Avant is now offered with removed factory parts, complete service records, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Maryland title in the seller’s name.
The body is finished in Nogaro Blue (LZ5M) and features a panoramic sunroof and a black-finished grille, window openings, and roof rails. European-spec modifications include an RS4 rear hatch spoiler, adaptive bi-xenon headlights, and B8.5 taillights. The front and rear bumpers are said to have been repainted, and a sticker affixed to the driver’s door states that a paint protection film has been applied to the front end of the car along with a ceramic coating over the painted surfaces. The seller notes scuffs on the front lip spoiler and rear valance.
Silver-finished 19″ 5-arm-rotor design wheels are wrapped in 255/35 Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires showing 2020 and 2021 date codes. Originally equipped with the Sport Package sport suspension, the car has been modified with an 034Motorsport chassis X-brace, KW V3 coilovers, and RS4 front and rear brakes.
The cabin features S4 seating upholstered in black leather with Nogaro Blue Alcantara inserts that extend to the door panels and are joined by S4 leather door armrests as well as RS4 aluminum door pulls. Additional features include a B8.5 shifter assembly and S-Tronic shift knob, and brushed aluminum trim accents the dashboard, center console, and door panels. The front seats are heated and power-adjustable with driver’s side memory, and additional amenities include Audi multi-media infotainment, dual zone climate control, cruise control, and a Bang & Olufsen sound system.
An Alcantara-wrapped R8 GT flat-bottom steering wheel features paddle shifters and frames a replacement B8.5 instrument cluster that includes a 160-mph speedometer, a tachometer, a digital display, and gauges for coolant temperature and fuel level. The digital odometer indicates 23k miles.
The turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four sends has been modified with installation of an APR K04 turbo kit with a downpipe, a Wagner front-mounted intercooler, and an oil change was performed in preparation for the sale. The driver’s side front strut tower relief hole was repaired following damage from contact with the upper control arm. Photos taken before the repair can be viewed in the gallery below.
Power to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic Tiptronic transaxle and a Quattro all-wheel-drive system. The rear subframe was reportedly replaced in March 2021.
The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists history in Florida and Maryland.
