Porsche CEO Ferdinand Piech was to realise his idea for a fast estate with this skunkworks project – the RS2.
There is no mistaking the Porsche influence with this in-house project known internally as ‘P1’; mirrors, side lights, wheels and brakes all migrating from the neighbours parts inventory. The Polar Silver bodywork retains a rich, deep lustre that sparkles beautifully in natural light; an exceptionally popular period colour that appears as a layered, almost two-tone effect, depending upon light conditions. Trims, grilles and surrounds have aged well whilst lights and lenses remain moisture free.
The cabin is unapologetically 90’s; vertical vents, rectangular head rests and white dials are pure retro fever. The Recaro seats of the period hug the midriff noticeably well and given single ownership over the last 20 years present impeccably, without noticeable bolster wear and still exhibiting an almost matte effect. The carbon inlays show well without lacquer peel or distortion whilst an updated Kenwood head unit provides more modern day connectivity. The original radio is supplied.
Carpets and mats are excellent throughout whilst the boot space and luggage protector are also present tidily.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Having been over serviced throughout its life the engine and drive train has had everything it has needed courtesy of the Audi main dealer network. The 5 cylinder engine is incredibly smooth and delivers its mighty power, courtesy of a KKK turbocharger that was 30 per cent larger than on the Audi S2, with a wonderful torque hit than pins you to the seat.
The gearbox feels tight and precise and its as easy to drive around town as it is on the open road. The manual lock for the rear diff works smoothly; only for the most challenging conditions at low speed.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The Porsche Cup I wheels present unmarked wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 3’s; all with over 5mm across the tread.
The Brembo big brake kit is evenly matched to the performance available, pulling the car up strongly with a minimum of fuss.
