1995 Audi Avant RS2 - Not Approved

1995 Audi Avant RS2 - Not Approved

Audi Avant RS2
The Audi Avant RS2 is on the list of vehicles not approved for Show or Display. Too many of them were made, 2891 cars, well outside the 500 units for Show or Display requirements. The 315 horsepower wagon sounds like a pretty cool, fast car. 0-60 in 4.8 seconds, 166 mph top speed. We hardly ever got any of the cool wagons in the US. In the case of this car, not under Show or Display.

The RS2 was the product of a co-development project between Audi and Porsche, based on Audi's 80 Avant, and built on the Volkswagen Group B4 platform. It was powered by a modified version of their 2.2 litre inline five-cylinder 20-valve turbocharged petrol engine (parts code prefix: 034, identification code: ADU).[1] This internal combustion engine produced a motive power output of 232 kilowatts (315 PS; 311 bhp) at 6,500 revolutions per minute (rpm). Although much of the car's underpinnings were manufactured by Audi, assembly was handled by Porsche at their Rossle-Bau plant in Zuffenhausen, Germany, which had become available after discontinuation of the Mercedes-Benz 500E, which Porsche had manufactured there under contract. The Rossle-Bau plant also produced the famous Porsche 959
