Video: Audi RS4 Avant presents the Ultimate Paintball Duel

Article by Christian A., on March 1, 2013

Are you up for a game of paintball while on board high-powered wagons? This may soon be a possibility as Audi recently installed paintball guns on two RS 4 Avants. A video was also released of the pint-sized A1 Quattro that is drifting through Munich rather than San Francisco. Audi installs big M2 machine gun paintball gun replicas on the hood of each 450-hp 4.2-liter V-8-powered all-wheel-drive RS 4 Avant.

Each vehicle has been fitted with guns filled with paintballs. These would then be hooked up to a red trigger in the cabin. The RS 4 Avants will get countermeasures as well as several additional surprise items.

The video uses the ’80s classic “Scarface (Push It To The Limit)” soundtrack. Audi has also released another video. This time, an A1 Quattro is featured. It does its best Gymkhana impressions while drifting through Munich, Germany to a Dubstep track.

It won’t be difficult to tell that the Audi RS4 Avant is a high performance unit even at a glance. This is mainly because the new Audi RS4 Avant offers new dimensions, as shaped by its elegant exterior design and sharp details. This is why the Audi RS4 Avant is longer (by 20 mm or 0.79 inches), wider (by 24 mm or 0.94 inches) and lower (by 20 mm or 0.79 inches) than the A4 Avant. This means that the new Audi RS4 Avant measures 4,719 mm (15.48 ft) in length, 1,850 mm (6.07 ft) in width, and 1,416 mm in height.

Marking the exterior looks of the new Audi RS4 Avant is its hexagonal single-frame grille as framed by a matt aluminum-look element. This grille features a honeycomb insert in high-gloss anthracite and an RS4 badge.

The grille is flanked by wedge-shaped headlights featuring xenon plus main units surrounded by daytime running lights in LED. Meanwhile, airflow is directed through large air inlets -- marked by angled struts and covered by honeycomb grilles – as integrated into Audi RS4 Avant’s contoured bumper tapering into a splitter edge. The low-lying center air inlet is sectioned into three smaller openings.

When viewed from the sides, the new Audi RS4 Avant reveals flared wheel wells chiseled side sill caps. Its flared side elements -- with sharp horizontal upper edges – pay homage to first Audi quattro. The sides also feature mirror housings and trim strips in matt aluminum-look finish. The new Audi RS4 Avant also features an extended roof spoiler -- with recessed center segment -- that helps generate more downforce on the rear axle.
