New South Wales Police have unveiled their latest street weapon – a brand new Audi RS 4 Avant.
The Lake Illawarra Local Area Command of the NSW Police Force has taken delivery the Audi RS 4 Avant to support a variety of community and youth engagement programs.
Pressed into service for the for a period of 12 months, the Audi RS 4 Avant is liveried in a design chosen by almost 800 Audi Australia Facebook fans, in a competition that ran in June.
“The RS 4 Avant is the perfect vehicle to support the NSW Police Force in their youth engagement programs,” said Andrew Doyle, Managing Director of Audi Australia.
“It commands presence on the road, thanks to its muscular engine and striking looks. The design chosen by our Audi Australia Facebook fans amplifies the RS 4’s dynamic shape to round off what is a remarkably imposing stance,” said Doyle.
The RS 4 Avant is powered by a 4.2-litre FSI high-revving V8 engine that generates a fearsome 331kW of power and 430Nm of torque. Combined with quattro all-wheel-drive and 7-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission, the RS 4 Avant sprints from rest to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds.
“The Audi RS 4 provides an exciting and visible platform for our community and youth engagement activities,” said Superintendent Wayne Starling, Commander of Lake Illawarra LAC.
“Our use of the RS 4 will encourage people of all ages to introduce themselves to local police, using the car itself to help start up a conversation,” said Starling.
