A panel of renowned motoring journalists from 22 countries around the world has reached its verdict: the Audi RS 4 is the 2007 World Performance Car of the Year. The sports saloon from Audi beat off competition from 17 other candidates to take the title. The award was announced at the New York International Auto Show.
According to the World Car of the Year jurors, the Audi RS 4 is "the virtual definition of a sports sedan". They praised the quattro permanent four wheel drive system, 420 hp engine and build quality that is "beyond reproach". The jurors also thought that the very best part of the Audi RS 4 was "the wonderful roar it emits when you put your right foot down".
This is not the only award that the Audi RS 4 has received. Its blend of motorsport technology and everyday driving qualities has led to awards from "BBC Top Gear" magazine in Great Britain, "sport auto" magazine in Germany and "Motor" magazine in Australia.
The Audi RS 4 features a high-revving 420 hp eight-cylinder engine with FSI technology, quattro permanent four wheel drive with 40/60 asymmetric/dynamic torque distribution and DRC (Dynamic Ride Control). It reaches the 60 mph mark in 4.8 seconds, and 125 mph 16.6 seconds. Top speed is limited electronically to 155 mph.
The Audi A6 was the inaugural "World Car of the Year" in 2005.
