The 1995 Audi RS 2 Avant is an all-wheel drive sports car that appears in Forza Motorsport 4 and all subsequent main titles of the Forza series with the exception of Forza Horizon. It is is only available as part of The Smoking Tire Car Pack in Forza Motorsport 5.

The RS 2 Avant was designed and manufactured in cooperation with Porsche. It was introduced as Audi's first high-performance station wagon and as the first RS (Rennsport, German for racing sport) model, which would later be succeeded by other top ranging performance cars. With performance specifications such as a 0 to 60 mph time in less than five seconds, it is one of the fastest cars of its era.

The RS 2 Avant was only available in a limited production run of 2200 units from 1994 to 1995, although it was not exported to the North American market.[1] It received a successor in 2001 - the Audi RS 4 Avant.

DescriptionEdit

There’s no sound quite like the bark of a turbocharged inline five-cylinder, an unusual engine configuration that Audi first perfected in the legendary Audi Sport quattro. In the RS2, an evolution of that engine sits behind a face dominated by mesh grille inserts, flanked by a brace of projector headlights, and topped off with the signature Audi interlinked rings. The RS2 Avant was the very first Audi to wear the RennSport name, and the wagon body style was intentionally chosen to show off the company’s ability to produce a no-compromises vehicle that can blow the doors off many sports cars while comfortably conveying a family with a bunch of stuff from point A to point B. Most incredibly, its performance can shame a considerable number of newer high-performance cars, making it a legend in its own time and a fitting tribute to the Sport quattro’s legacy.

CharacteristicsEdit

By using the platform of the mid-sized Audi 80 Avant wagon, the RS 2 Avant has a longitudinally mounted front engine and a front axle load of 58% from 3517 lb (1595 kg). It is equipped with a high number of Porsche designed parts including suspension, four-piston brakes and 17" Porsche 968 wheels.

Since the RS 2 Avant was also based off the Audi S2 sports coupé, it is powered by a 20-valve inline-five engine with a turbocharger and an intercooler, producing 311 hp (232 kW) at 6000 rpm and 302 ft·lb (409 N·m) at 3000 rpm. It sends its power to a six-speed manual transmission which is coupled to a quattro branded all-wheel drive system with Torsen differentials.[3] The RS 2 Avant only needs 4.7 seconds from 0 to 60 mph as well as 13.1 seconds from 0 to 100 mph and reaches 166 mph (267 km/h) as top speed.[4]
