I bought an Audi RS2 Avant! The RS2 is the first-ever Audi RS car, and it's my dream fast wagon -- and I'm SO EXCITED that I have one. Today I'm reviewing the RS2, and I'll show you all the quirks and features of a very, very special Audi.

  • Hey mate, here a sugestion: I am from The Netherlands and over here several are driving around. I live near the city Waalwijk and over there is the importer for almost all German brands called "Van Mossel Waalwijk". They have a lot of experience with RS 2. Maybe you can contact them for some more information. It's one of the biggest carimporters of Europe, so maybe they know a good American dealer for you. Good luck with the car mate, looks really nice for a 25+

  • I still remember being overtaken by one in Leicester UK, back in 1992. I was gobsmacked and fell in love with it instantly, The contrast of the blue paint and red tail lights was indeed a thing of beauty back then!

  • We in Europe yawn when we see Audi details from old Audis and Doug is excited like "check the window lift button lights up when you activate it" .. That 5 cylinder engine is constructed in the 70's, and its one of the first engines where somebody put turbo on it. Google type 43 200 turbo

  • @dougdemuro If you need it repairing, you can send it to my mechanic in the UK?! He's been entrusted some major work on an RS2 in the past. If that's maybe a little bit of a hassle you can just take a look at the work he's done! You can find him on Instagram @performanceprestigederby (I tagged you 😁)

  • Doug, my old '97 Eclipse with a small 16g turbo would take to about 3200 RPM to hit full boost. By all means, at the time that was a fast-spooling turbo compared to other modified Japanese cars with much bigger turbos, but there was still some lag. I was making about 350 whp at 20 psi of boost and I still have the datalog from the track where I went 0-60 in 3.7 seconds (11.91 @ 115 mph). The trick is to rev up to 7500 RPM and just dump the clutch. Hopefully you have something strong like an ACT 2600 clutch, and a slightly modified drivetrain that won't just break when you launch it. The car will start going sideways before it starts to go forward, but that's a good sign, because it means all 4 wheels are spinning. I've never gotten a faster launch out of an AWD car.

  • Actually Ferdinand Porsche engineered the Beatle, the first VW car and helped to build the "Autostadt Wolfsburg" - the main production facility/town for VW. He mainly started VW and of course Porsche. And there is Ferdinand Piëch, the grandson of Ferdinand Porsche. He was an engineer at Porsche, VW (Volkswagen EA 266) and Audi (Audi 100 5E, Audi Quattro), did engineering work for Daimler Benz (Mercedes 240 D 3.0) and become later Chairman of the Audi AG in 1985. So it's not that Porsche needed money alone as they helped to build the Audi RS2 , but also the relationship between these german car manufacturers (Porsche, Audi, VW). And as we know they all belong to the Volkswagen AG today.

  • Why does he throughout this entire video COMPLETELY disregard the BMW E34 Touring M5...??? He says this is BY FAR the most powerful station wagon etc throughout the entire video, but the fact is the 3,8 L M5 was introduced in 92(!) and they came as station wagons since 92 also... The Audi has 315 hp but the 3,8 M5 had 340, which is MORE. Then how is the Audi "BY FAR the most powerful"....? What's his deal? I'm not a fan of this guy, but he knows his stuff... So why does he forget the first M5 estate, as if it's something super rare no one has heard about...?

  • I got the thrill of seeing one of this brand new in Ingolstadt in the 90’s. I was the weird car kid who loved German cars, especially the wolf in sheep’s clothing type of cars. This was one of my favorite cars from that era, so seeing it while visiting Audi’s new delivery center in Ingolstadt was a huge thrill! Congrats, Doug, excellent choice. You may want to get connected with Jamie Orr who may be able to source you parts. Just search him, yes sort of famous win water cooled VW world, and big on Instagram.

  • please stop saying porsche, dont try to make it sound like it is said in germany it just sounds stupid. The turbo is from the porsche turfbo 3.3. And till tpoday i never had a car that had such a bad miles per gallon. he took 40 l per 100 kilometers PS it is called RS blue because it is allso porsaches colour which they used on the RS. A really sad performance from the audi service. A nd dont vory about the engine, it will never fail you. IF you come to a point when you cant find something, get back to me. enjoy

But the companies hat ties in their owners and CEO (but with a lot of rivalry, hence the overtaking thing), Porsche /Piech family members are owners of both Audi/VW/Porsche so it's not that mystical Porsche helped Piech 🤷‍♂️
