Many dreamt of the day when Audi would bring the B8 RS 4 to the States. Realistically, that ship has long sailed. However, maybe not for everyone... enter Dennis Tang. Dennis dreamt about this for his new 2013 B8.5 S4 concept for well over 6 months now. He knew that this would be a game changer so he needed to plan and prep for this in order to do it the right way.
The idea of an B8/8.5 RS 4 has been on again/off again when it comes to Audi bringing it to stateside, and they have even teased with one beautiful B8 RS 4 Avant which currently resides in Audi of America's corporate fleet. Cars for public consumption however are limited to those in Europe as well as some other places that do not include the United States.
The reality of an RS 4 sedan has not been available since the B7 chassis. During the era of the B7 RS 4, Audi's sedan variant was not only built, but it was also, arguably, the best-selling body style of that generation. By the time the B8 chassis came into production, the RS 4 sedan model was not available and thus the Avant was the only option.
So, Dennis and San Diego-based tuner, TAG Motorsports, decided to tackle this and create an RS 4 sedan through sourced OEM parts, including every bolt, part, lip, spoiler, door, fender, grill, and bumper required.
The vehicle was already equipped with HRE Forged Wheels, KW DDC Coil Overs w/ HLS (Noselift), AWE/GIAC Stage 2 tune as well as SuperSprint's Long Tube Headers and Stoptech Brakes.
Above are photographs of the next-to-finished result (minor detail modifications required) on HRE Forged P104 wheels in Brushed Dark Clear. We can't wait to see the final product!
