New Audi Sport Nogaro Editions for TT RS, RS 4, RS 5 and RS 6
In a tip of the hat to the iconic RS 2 Avant, Audi has launched a fleet of new special edition RS cars, on sale in UK now
Audi has revealed a line-up of new special edition RS models paying homage to the legendary 1994 RS 2 Avant.
The new Audi Sport Nogaro Edition specification is available on the TT RS Coupe, the RS 4 Avant, the RS 5, in both Sportback and Coupe formats, and the RS 6 Avant. For each variant, the production run is limited to just 25 examples for the UK.
All of the Nogaro Edition models are finished in Nogaro Blue pearl effect paint in tribute to the RS 2 Avant, while the TT RS, RS4 and RS 5 versions are finished with gloss black wheels (seven spoke on the TT RS and five on the RS 4 and RS 5 models). RS 6 models are fitted with new 22-inch gloss black items, while every car gets contrasting red brake calipers.
Similarly, all the Nogaro Editions get a new common exterior styling pack. This means the cars feature a front splitter, side sills and rear diffuser elements finished in matt aluminum. The mirrors and badging are finished in gloss black, while uprated Audi Sport exhaust systems finished in black are fitted across the board.
Inside, buyers have a choice of Nappa or Valcona leather upholstery but with denim blue stitching and additional leather trim elements around the cabin. There’s an Alcantara finish on the steering wheel and gear selector, too.
Engines and performance specifications go unchanged. As such, the TT RS uses a turbocharged 2.5-litre five-cylinder engine developing 395bhp and enabling 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds. Prices for the TT RS Nogaro Edition start from £67,765.
The larger RS 4 and RS 5 models retain six-cylinder power by way of a turbocharged 2.9-litre V6 with 444bhp. Audi claims 4.1 seconds to 62mph for the £80,840 RS 4 Avant Nogaro Edition. The Nogaro Edition RS 5 Coupe and Sportback are both priced from £85,305, and are both capable of 0-62mph in 3.9 seconds.
As for the 592bhp twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 RS 6 Nogaro Edition, it’s available from £115,240. All versions are on sale in the UK now.
