Audi has decided on prices for its RS4 Avant and cabriolet: £51,780 and £59,580 on the road respectively.
Both cars are marginally (0.1 of a second) slower than the saloon to 60mph at 4.9 seconds, but performance will still be explosive. Changes from the saloon’s comprehensive specification are limited to aluminium roof rails for the Avant. To help justify the hefty (£9600) price increase over the saloon, the cabriolet gains a 6 CD changer, DVD sat nav, Nappa leather and new seats that allow easier access to the rear cabin. It can be ordered from March 16th; Audi claims cars will reach customers by summer. The Avant can be ordered now.
