Audi RS2 Avant
Audi’s impressive wagon was the first car to be designated with the “RS” initials. In the mid-90s, the RS2 was capable of hitting 62 mph in 4.8 seconds. For reference, the modern RS4 does that sprint in 4.7 seconds. To say the RS2 was impressive is an understatement. Built by Porsche, the RS2 featured a 311-hp turbocharged five-cylinder engine, all-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission.
We couldn’t get something like the RS2 Avant for nearly 20 years, when the B7 Audi RS4 finally hit the US in 2007. A nice consolation prize, Americans were late to the party when it came to superfast Audi wagons, and missed the premier model entirely.
