Porsche CEO Ferdinand Piech was to realise his idea for a fast estate with this skunkworks project – the RS2. There is no mistaking the Porsche influence with this in-house project known internally as ‘P1’; mirrors, side lights, wheels and brakes all migrating from the neighbours parts inventory.
The iconic Nogaro blue bodywork retains a rich, deep lustre that sparkles beautifully in natural light; an exceptionally popular period colour and one that has stood the test of time and still offered by Audi as a nod and honour to their first fast estate that started it all.
Trims, grilles and surrounds have aged well whilst lights and lenses remain moisture free. This car has spent the majority of its life garage, evident from its excellent, rust free condition.
The cabin is unapologetically 90’s; vertical vents, rectangular head rests and white dials are pure retro fever. The Recaro seats of the period hug the midriff noticeably well and given single ownership over the last 20 years present impeccably, without noticeable bolster wear and still exhibiting an almost matte effect. The wood inlays show well without lacquer peel or distortion whilst a Becker head unit tops off the retro appeal.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 5 cylinder engine is incredibly smooth and delivers its mighty power, courtesy of a KKK turbocharger that was 30 per cent larger than on the Audi S2, with a wonderful torque hit than pins you to the seat. Recently fully serviced including the cambelt and a host of further work to ensure mechanically the car drives incredibly well.
The gearbox feels tight and precise and its as easy to drive around town as it is on the open road. The manual lock for the rear diff works smoothly; only for the most challenging conditions at low speed.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The Porsche Cup I wheels present in excellent condition having been recently refurbished, these are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres; recently replaced and only having only covered 1k miles, all with excellent tread.
The Brembo big brake kit is evenly matched to the performance available, pulling the car up strongly with a minimum of fuss. Calipers present as new having been recently refurbished.
First supplied and registered in Germany on 16/08/1994 this uber estate spent the next 7 years and 64k kilometres in its homeland before being imported into the UK by its then long term owner.
The full and original book pack is still present along side the original German Fahrzeugbrief and a folder full of invoices tracking the cars early history.
The car was sold last year by us and at the time had a huge amount of work carried out as a refresh. Work included a major service, belts, new dampers and a fresh set of rubber last year, as such the car drives beautifully and is ready to be enjoyed by the next custodian.
