Audi launches 25th anniversary package for its RS models
The styling pack celebrates the silver anniversary of the Audi RS 2 Avant – and its available across the German brand’s entire RS range
Audi has launched an exclusive styling package across its RS range, which celebrates the 25th anniversary of the 1994 Audi RS 2 Avant. The performance estate was the company’s first RS-branded model – and this new trim package pays tribute to it, sharing the same paint finish, fresh exterior trim pieces and a range of unique badging.
Audi’s 25th anniversary package can be specced on the TT RS Coupe, RS 4 Avant, RS 5 Coupe, RS 5 Sportback, RS 6 Avant and RS 7 Sportback. All six models are finished in the same Nogaro Blue pearl effect paint as the 1994 RS 2 Avant – although buyers can also opt for Mythos Black, Nardo Grey and Glacier White.
With the exception of the TT RS Coupe, all models feature matte aluminium-finish trim for the front splitter, bumper intakes, side skirts and rear diffuser. The mirror caps, Audi badges and rear wing of the TT RS Coupe have also been swapped for gloss black units, along with an exclusive 25th anniversary puddle lighting graphic.
The cabin has also received a mild redesign, with cobalt blue Alcantara accents for the piping on the floor mats and 12 o’clock marking on the steering wheel. Like the old RS 2 Avant, the sports seats in the TT RS, RS 4 and RS 5 are trimmed in a blend of Alcantara and black leather, while the RS 6 and RS 7 feature perforated full leather upholstery.
UK prices for the Audi’s RS 25th anniversary package are yet to be confirmed. In Germany, the package can be specced on the TT RS Coupe for €9,350 (around £7,800), while the RS 4 Avant, RS 5 Coupe and RS 5 Sportback command a premium of €10,900 (roughly £9,100). The package is slightly more expensive on the RS 6 Avant and RS 7 Sportback, retailing for €14,500, which equates to around £12,000.
