2008 Audi RS4 Cabriolet
After an 18-year hiatus, BMW has revived the 8 Series name with the BMW Concept 8 Series. The automaker's new flagship model could help the manufacturer compete against Mercedes-Benz, which overtook BMW last year as the world's largest luxury automaker.
Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.
Classic Car Overview
This RS4 Cabriolet car looks absolutely fantastic; sporty - with its slightly lowered suspension, nineteen-inch wheels, and wider wheel arches - but still subtle. The drivers work environment in the RS4 is all business, but at the same time lacks for nothing in terms of luxury. The seats in this example are in excellent condition. Upholstered in fine, "Silk Nappa" leather with contrasting piping, they are deeply sculpted and very comfortable, offering a multitude of ways to adjust and hold you securely. The perforated leather-wrapped, multi-function steering wheel feels perfect. Start it up, and the high-revving, 420-hp V-8 sounds great; hit the "S" button (which quickens the throttle response and alters the exhaust flow) and it sounds even better. Putting the top down lets you drink in the sound all the better. This is a car where you find yourself holding a lower gear just to hear the engine rev.
Speaking of that engine, its the same unit that motivates the mighty R8. In this high-output naturally aspirated form, the 4.2L V8 is a prime example of what makes internal combustion engines so appealing. The aural symphony played by this beauty is absolutely scintillating. Putting your right foot down brings forth a roar that says in no uncertain terms that this car is not one with which to be trifled. With the fully lined and fully automatic roof retracted below the rear deck as the mill approaches its 8,000 rpm red-line, vibration is virtually nonexistent, but the sound sends a chill down your spine.
With 420 hp, the base front-wheel-drive setup of the A4 clearly would not do in an RS. The Quattro all-wheel drive does a great job of putting the power down via a 6-speed gearbox. Even with all that torque to transmit, shifting the RS4 is a blissfully simple task thanks to the wonderfully fluid and straightforward six-speed manual gearbox (the only transmission available) and perfectly tuned clutch. The shift mechanism is smooth and precise making it around town motoring easy. The steering is linear and nicely weighted. The standard dynamic ride control provides a surprisingly supple ride and firm, stoic grip through the corners. This is a car that never beats you up or bums you out; its just a highly polished, highly seductive muscle machine that offers the option of the 360-degree view of the rushing scenery. Cruising around town with the top down is a pleasure, and compared to the RS4 sedan, its far more exclusive: The total production run was only 300.
