The Audi B7 RS4 is quite a rare car. Audi manufactured limited numbers of this vehicle so key markets such as the United States, Europe, UK and Australia all received low volumes for sale in each locale. This just added to its mystic and desire for one to own such a prized possession. What makes it a prized possession?


The performance of the B7 RS4 is derived from a 4.2-liter V8 engine producing 420 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque.

When you have an engine with lower torque than horsepower, the B7 RS4 is just begging to be revved out. It doesn’t redline until hitting 8,250 rpm!

Here are some eye-watering numbers: the B7 RS4 will hit 100 kph in around 4.6 seconds to reach its top speed of 250 kph. Not that the owner has tested that number on Brisbane streets!

The B7 RS4 lays its power down to a Quattro all-wheel-drive system. How could a wheel system power the car?

The Quattro All-Wheel-Drive System

The history of the Quattro all-wheel-drive-system gives an insight into why it was developed and how it powers a car. It was launched in the 1980 Quattro rally car. Yes, it was developed for a rally car!  It dominated the racetrack as well as rallies on the icy roads of the Alps constantly maintaining grip and precision at every turn.

By maintaining total all-wheel drive traction, it was able to channel the full power of the engine for best performance.

All Audis are fitted with customised quattro systems to suit the specific model. The B7 RS4 has sports car-like performance and handling with uncompromised all-wheel drive traction.

Audi B7 RS4 Smash Repairs

With owning such a highly valued and essentially collector car, our client was keen to have his Audi B7 RS4 smash repairs performed to a high standard. We performed quite a number of repairs. One key area was the front bumper which was repaired and painted.

Wheels Painted

Another part our client wanted restored was to have the wheels painted. We painted them to what would have been their showroom colour. Rare vehicles have the potential to become classic cars so it is important to have every element including wheels of the car repaired/restored to manufacturer’s specs.

As you can see from some of the photos, there is a degree of time and effort to paint wheels.

Just something to keep in mind, that if the wheels on your car have experienced gutter scrape, this can be repaired. This does enhance the overall look of the vehicle.

Adrian and the team did an excellent job of fixing up some blemishes in my collector B7 RS4…  Their eye for detail and willingness to go the extra mile to make sure things were fixed properly and not just cosmetically would always make them my choice for restoring a car where quality matters.
