Audi RS4 Avant Nogaro

Twenty years ago Audi unveiled the RS2 Avant – a  model that would pave the way for a long line of high performance RS models.  To mark the occasion, Audi is unveiling a special edition Audi RS4 Avant Nogaro featuring vibrant Nogaro Blue paint, with other design elements including gloss black window frames, oval exhausts and grille surround.  Inside, Nogaro Blue Alcantara suede accents can be had on the door panels and seat inners (black suede is also available), with Valcona leather standard on the seat outers.  More Nogaro Blue can be found on the steering wheel stitching, while blue threads in the carbon fiber trim and a special-edition shifter top off the interior design elements.  Lastly, power in the Audi RS4 Avant Nogaro is unchanged from the standard RS4, with a 450-horsepower V8 and 7-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission providing the fun.  Unfortunately we won't see the Audi RS4 Avant Nogaro hitting U.S. shores anytime soon, but European customers can pick one up this spring.

Audi Sport Quattro Laserlight Concept

Updating their Sport Quattro Concept, Audi has unveiled the Audi Sport Quattro Laserlight Concept – set to debut at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.  Like the original Sport Quattro Concept, the Laserlight boasts a plug-in hybrid powertrain consisting of a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine and a disc-shaped electric motor. Together, they produce a combined maximum output of 700 hp and 800 Nm of torque, enough to propel the model from 0-62 mph in 3.7 seconds before reaching a top speed of 189 mph. More impressively, the Quattro Laserlight averages 94.1 mpg, with a range of 31 milestone electricity alone.  Where the Laserlight differs from the standard Sport Quattro Concept is in its lights.  The Laserlight features matrix LED headlights with laser light technology that are 3x as powerful as conventional LEDs.  They're powerful enough to illuminate the road up to 1,640 ft. while simultaneously blinding oncoming motorists in one fell swoop.  My retinas are terrified just thinking about them.
