OK. Your car lease is due for renewal and you’ve got an urge to get behind the wheel of something truly spectacular.
What do you do?
Well if you get a move on and give us a call ASAP you could find yourself driving the new Audi RS4 Avant Bronze Edition. Trust us when we say that would be an excellent decision.
The Bronze Edition is, as you’ve probably guessed, a special edition of the RS4 Avant estate. Based on the standard RS4 it adds some unique design touches and an enhanced equipment list, and with only 25 of them coming to the UK it will be quite an exclusive club to join.
The power comes from the fantastic twin turbo V6 petrol engine generating around 450bhp, sharing that power between all four wheels via an eight-speed tiptronic transmission. The result is a sprint time of just 4 seconds and a limited top speed of 155mph, plus amazing handling and grip from the four-wheel drive and RS specific sports suspension.
The interior also befits a flagship RS model and features Navigation Plus, massaging front seats, the brilliant Audi Virtual Cockpit with RS-specific screens and wireless handset charging. The 10.1-inch touchscreen controls all the usual bits of equipment as well as the RS monitor that provides an overview of drive system component temperatures, maximum g-forces and information regarding tyre pressures and temperatures. In the Audi virtual cockpit, the special RS displays also provide information on tyre pressure, torque, power output, engine oil temperature, lap timings, acceleration measurements and g-forces. A shift light display is also included to prompt the driver to upshift when the rev limit is reached. The RS4 is unmistakably a driver’s car.
The only real difference between this and the other RS4 options Audi has to offer is in the added extras.
The Bronze edition features a Vesuvius Grey paint and black detailing to complement the 20-inch bronze alloys. According to Audi it’s “built for stealth” and you can see what they mean.
As well as the exclusive paint and distinctive wheels there is also a high gloss black finish for front air intake surrounds, which are complemented by a matt carbon lip spoiler. Black roof rails and window surrounds and matt carbon mirror housings also darken the look, as does a matt carbon diffuser with a high gloss black insert at the rear. Audi has even replaced the bright chrome of the RS sports exhaust with black equivalents so the look isn’t spoiled.
On the interior the bronze contrast stitching for the black Nappa leather super sport seats picks up the theme of those stunning wheels. The same stitching appears around the cabin with leather elements in the sides of the centre console and the armrests, the leather-rimmed steering wheel and gear lever gaiter. Carbon detailing is also carried through from the exterior into the matt carbon twill inlays which perfectly complement the contrast-stitched leather.
The RS4 Bronze Edition also takes on board some additional features, as well as some added luxuries. You can get keyless entry, electric hands-free opening for the powered tailgate, a 360-degree camera that uses wide-angle lenses to pick up the entire perimeter of the car and offers a ‘bird’s eye view’ feature, LED interior lighting that can be configured to different colours, and a Bang & Olufsen audio upgrade delivering a 755-watt output via 19 speakers.
We’re going to shut up now so you can look at the pictures of the RS4. Although that may not be a good idea unless you’re prepared to move quickly. The Audi RS4 Bronze is available right now so those 25 examples aren’t going to be available for long. Don’t spend too long looking at the pictures in case they’re all gone when you finish dreaming.
It might be better to give us a call first instead. That way you won’t need the pictures because you’ll have the real thing parked outside your house. Or take a look at our latest Audi A4 Avant lease deals to find the Audi you want.
