The first pictures of the Audi RS4 Avant have been leaked, ahead of its debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

Looking tastefully restrained, the wagon has a new front fascia with a honeycomb grille and larger air intakes. Out back, there's a tailgate-mounted spoiler, a redesigned rear bumper and two massive exhaust tips. We can also see LED-infused headlights, high-performance brakes, matte aluminum accents and 19-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, the cabin features sport seats, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and alloy pedals.

Power will reportedly be provided by a 4.2-liter V8 engine with 450 PS (331 kW / 444 hp) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque. It will be connected to an S tronic transmission which is backed up by a quattro all-wheel drive system. This could enable the model to rocket from 0-100 km/h in 4.7 seconds, before hitting a top speed of up to 280 km/h (174 mph).
