Audi RS 25th Anniversary package pays homage to the RS2 Avant 

Special features for RS range mark a quarter century of Audi’s performance division

To celebrate a quarter of a century of Audi RS, the Ingolstadt marque has launched a new package for its high-performance line-up. Available on models from the TT RS to the new RS7, order books for the ‘anniversary package 25 years of RS’ are open now, with prices starting from around £8000.

The year 1994 marked the beginning for Audi RS, when the RS2 Avant was launched as the world’s fastest estate car. Volvo’s 850R would soon come to compete, but with the late Ferdinand Piëch having turned to Porsche for its development, not much could come close. Respectable even today, a 2.2-litre turbocharged five-cylinder put 315bhp and 302lb ft of torque to the tarmac, good for a 5.4sec 0-62mph time and 163mph top speed.

Paying homage to the model, the 25th Anniversary package offers the RS2’s famous Nogaro blue launch colour, alongside matte aluminium and gloss black trim pieces and a handful of limited-edition badging throughout - Mythos Black, Nardo Grey and Glacier White are also available. Two-tone, diamond-cut wheels also come as standard, complete with exclusive 25th Anniversary centre caps.

Additions don’t stop on the outside, with Audi having applied plenty of RS2-inspired touches in the cabin. Included in the package is an exclusive puddle light that projects the 25th Anniversary logo onto the ground on opening the doors, alongside a handful of 25th Anniversary branding on the door cards, floor mats and seats. As in the RS2, Cobalt Blue accents feature throughout, with the floor mats sporting blue piping, the 12 o'clock marker finished in blue, and even the perforations in the RS6 and RS7’s Valcona leather seats coming complete with blue highlights. The TT RS, RS4 and RS5 all come with Nappa leather and Alcantara honeycomb pattern items, also referencing the first RS.
