Chassis No: WUAZZZ8H97K800535
MOT: December 2024

  • Warranted 19,800 miles from new (at the time of consignment)
  • Rare RS4 Cabriolet model
  • 4.2-litre, naturally-aspirated 414bhp V8, four-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission
  • Excellent example, worthy of close inspection!
  • Offered from a significant private collection of classic and collector German cars

The B7 RS4 was a drastic departure from previous Audi RS models being available initially as a four-door saloon with the Avant Estate and the Cabriolet arriving later, unlike the previous RS4 and RS2 which were available exclusively as Avants. In manufacture between 2006-2008, the B7 was constructed from fully galvanised steel in a monocoque design with the RS4 benefiting from lightweight Aluminium front wings and bonnet. Despite the wide flared arches, large air intakes and low and purposeful stance, the RS4 had a class-leading drag coefficient. The engine of the B7 RS4 is based on the existing all-alloy 4163cc V8 from the B6 S4 and shared many parts with the 4.2 FSI V8 in the Q7. Producing 414bhp at 7,800rpm, the power is fed through a Getrag 6-speed manual gearbox and out to all four wheels with the aid of Audi’s trademark ‘Quattro’ permanent four-wheel-drive system.

Supplied new by Slough Audi, being delivered to its first owner on the 1st March 2007, the RS4 Cabriolet offered is finished from the factory in Pearl Effect Daytona Grey paintwork with Black Silk Nappa leather upholstery and a Black hood. Specified from the factory with extensive options, including electrically adjustable and heated exterior mirrors; park distance control, front and rear; Climatronic; Bi-functional headlights with range adjustment; CD changer; Anti-theft alarm system; Decorative inserts; Servotronic; power adjustable lumbar support and heated front seats; Multi-function display/on-board computer and Navigation; front centre armrest; and heat-insulating glass windscreen with sunshield. Living a pampered life, the RS4 is now offered with a warranted sub-20,000 miles; with a chance to buy an already scarce RS4 Convertible, that is barely run-in, this is a ‘try and find another’ opportunity.

Offered from a significant private collection of classic and collector German cars, the RS4's engine bay is clean and nicely detailed, the bodywork/paintwork presenting very well, fully functional and very good condition hood, excellent 19-inch RS5 alloys, with the interior also looking consummate for the Audis mileage. A fully active Miltek exhaust has been fitted, with the ‘S’ button on the steering wheel opening it and providing a throatier exhaust tone. The Audi also boasts a very strong history file that includes the original book pack in the Audi wallet that comprises the owners and operations manuals, supplementary manuals, and the original stamped service book that illustrates nine services, all completed by Audi main agents, with the most recent completed in April this year at 19,519 miles.

Further included in the history file is a collection of previous MOTs and invoices, original sales literature, original pricing and specification guides, a no advisory MOT certificate until December 2024; two sets of keys and fobs; previous sales invoices; and a current V5C document. The Audi RS4 B7 is a staggeringly competent car, and is very much becoming collectable, with low-mileage examples such as this exceptionally hard to find.

PLEASE NOTE: The Audi will be back on its original registration in time for sale.
