Verdict

Final thoughts and pick of the range

This reworked RS4 shows how committed RS GmbH is to creating cars of real character. A bit uptight, mind

The reworked RS4 shows how committed RS GmbH is to creating cars of real character, as opposed to machines that you simply point down the autobahn. Whatever the weather. The guys running the show over there are young and enthusiastic and their cars have an impressively evolving bandwidth, including considerable potential to entertain.

The RS4 is visually distinctive, impeccably engineered and built, and has the pace and capability to exceed the requirements for any self-respecting real-world supercar. Hard to fault in an objective sense, then. Yet it still feels a bit uptight, and not completely comfortable with the more extrovert aspects of its remit. In that respect, it’s probably tailor-made for its audience.
