Autoblog: 2020 Audi A4 Avant Spy Photos Show Yet Another Refresh

source: Autoblog Audi just showed a refreshed A4 back in June, but the company apparently still feels the design won't be up-to-date when sharing showroom space with the new A8, A7 and A6. We know this because one of our spy photographers caught the above A4 Avant example testing with yet another new front fascia. This update is more dramatic, but it's still just a mild refresh overall.... Read the rest of the story HERE

Find of the Day: 1994 S4 Avant (C4)

photos: suchen.mobile.de Yesterday, a 1993 Ur-S4 with just under 12,000 miles sold on Bring A Trailer for $33,000. Thirty...three...thousand...dollars.  With this in mind, I decided to search the sites for a similar S4 to see how much people were asking for them but then I ran across this. This is a 1994 C4 S4 Avant. While it's not a low mileage example (205,631 kms/127,773 miles), it is slightly more affordable at €6,000 ($7,742) and in my opinion, a more desirable ...

Find of the Day: 1994 Audi exclusive RS 2 in Porsche Oak Green

words: Bill Cho, photos: autoscout24.com The last time we featured a FOTD RS 2, it was a 1995 Polar Silver example with only 38,000 miles and was listed for €69,911.00 ($89,597.36 USD). This one can be had for quite a bit less and it's a 1994 model which means you only have to wait a couple of months to legally import it to the States. Located in Amsterdam at De Automobielfabriek, this RS 2 has 126,395 km (78,538 miles) and can be had for significantly less that the Polar Silver...

Carfection – Audi RS 6 Performance vs Mercedes-AMG E63 S

[words: Bill Cho, video and stills: Carfection] It's been awhile since we posted a video so when this one popped up, resistance was futile. So let me start by saying...yes, I know we don't get any iteration of the RS 6 here in the States. Yes, I know this is Audi Club North America so why am I posting cars that we can't get...yet. Carfection recently got their hands on an Audi RS 6 Performance and a Mercedes-AMG E63 S. They didn't do a 'normal' comparison that involved drag races no...

RS 4 Times Three: ABT Reveals Tuning Secrets From Different Generations

[source: ABT] Everything began in 1994 with the RS2, which is not included here. Porsche gave the compact Audi 80 Avant 315 turbo-horsepower (232 kW), driving any trace of conservativeness from the car. The idea of a sportscar in the body of a station wagon was born. “Today, I see one of the greatest advantages of this model in the fact that it looks like a normal family car but offers the driving performance of a pure sportscar,” rally driver Walter Röhrl said back in the day. 2,8...

With the earliest ones built in 1994, that's only 1 year away til we can import them into the States. How many can I find for sale in Europe on ...
