Recent rumors flying around the internet have suggested that Audi are preparing to launch the RS4 and if reports prove to be correct, it will only be available as an Avant variant. With this in mind, Jon Sibal has completed a rendering of what the final model may look like.

The design features an RS inspired front end with a mesh grille, a set of 20 inch wheels, wide fenders and blacked-out window trims.

Power for the model would come from a 4.2-liter V8 engine with around 450 PS (331 kW / 444 hp) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque. Audi's Seven-speed S tronic transmission and Quattro all-wheel-drive system would also make its way into the system.

It should enable the RS4 Avant to accelerate from 0-100kph (0-62mph) in just under 5 seconds before reaching an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph (250kph).

A 3rd quarter launch has been mentioned which would mean we shouldn't be too far off an official debut. The fact the Geneva Motor Show is just around the corner makes it a very likely contender, although it remains to be seen whether it would debut production ready or as a pre-production concept.
