As far as fast Audi wagons go, the Audi RS2 Avant is perhaps the most famous. It was the company’s first RS (Racing Sport) model, the line which has since spawned a multitude of fantastic vehicles.
This onboard video is here to show you just how exciting Audi’s first RS wagon is, and even 22 years later. Collaboratively designed alongside Porsche, the RS2 featured the 2.2-liter inline five-cylinder engine that made 311 hp at 6500 rpm, spinning the six-speed manual transmission.
Thanks to its Quattro all-wheel-drive, the Audi RS2 could accelerate from 0-60 in just 4.8 seconds, and achieve the top speed of more than 160 mph.
Porsche designed both the braking and suspension for the RS2, adding the huge Brembo four-piston calipers and lowering the ride height by 40 millimeters.
The wheels and the side mirrors were taken straight from the Porsche 964 Turbo, and as the result, PORSCHE inscriptions are scattered around the vehicle.
Youtuber Marchettino got the chance to hop in the driver’s seat of the blue RS2 and hit some winding roads to show us how great the RS2 is to drive.
Watch for yourself as he flies through tree-lined European roads. Even though it is more than two decades old, the RS2’s performance still impresses.
