With the new RS4, Audi has taken a step back towards towards more feedback and transparency. Take the recalibrated aluminium sports suspension, which offers a new level of responsiveness. It is flat and stiff and focused, but its communication tools – steering, tyres, brakes, torque flow –- are deeper and more complex than before. This is partly down to the re-engineered Quattro system, which boasts a crown-wheel centre diff instead of the previous Torsen device. The new layout warrants a faster and more efficient torque distribution, front-to-rear and side-to-side. In tandem with the ABS sensors, the uprated 4wd technology pairs an amazing dynamic grip with a new level of lateral control. The comparative image that comes to mind is a lizard running up a wet glass pane.
To our immense relief – and hopefully also to Audi’s – it has succeeded in maturing from the pragmatic but soulless perfection of the early RS5 to a more accessible, more controllable and ultimately more competent Q-car. It is a descendant the RS2 can be proud of.
