Now we want to try this.
When we saw a video called "2013 Audi RS 4 Avant :: 'Ultimate Paintball Duel'," we knew it was going to be good. We just didn't know how good it would be.
A 600-plus horsepower draggin' wagon? Of course we're into it.
But no, it's not coming here.
Update as of 6:32pm EST, 12/6/12: Audi of America has confirmed they currently have no plans to import the RS6 Avant. So start praying for that RS7.
Rejoice, friends—Audi's draggin' wagon is back, and there's a good chance the new 2013 RS6 Avant will quickly become one of our favorite cars when we lay our hands on it. If we lay our hands on it. (Nah, when. We're optimists.)
Now we just have to convince them to bring more.
It's been a while since Audi sold the RS4 on these shores. In fact, it's been a while since they sold an RS model here in the United States at all. Now, the RS5 recently began making its way to America, which we're grateful for, but it wasn't the RS we had our heart set on. No, we wanted the RS4—444 V8 horsepower in a sexy wagon body.
450 horsepower AWD wagon is another dream car we won't get.
A medium-sized sports wagon equipped with a 450 horsepower naturally aspirated V8 and all-wheel-drive sounds like the sort of daily driver we beg God for every Sunday, so Audi's new RS4 Avant seems like the answer to our prayers...except for the fact that it doesn't seem the car maker is bringing it to the U.S.
