Audi A4 B7 2.0 Turbo - Caractere kit

Possibly one of the most handsome saloons on the road, this is the B4 Audi A4 2.0 Turbo. Even hotter with the original Caractere kit :-) Wow!

Gorgeous badging ... RS4 Caractere.

Impeccable build quality, and check out the Bose sound system which comes as standard.

CVT gearbox allows seamless gear changes as well as incredible fuel economy. My friend informed me for a full tank of RM$120-130 (At current fuel prices, which means the tank is similar in size to a Toyota Camry's), the range is 600-650km! Pretty good for a 200bhp engine eh, which also means that you even get a road tax rebate!

Check out the pedal shift!!

Comfort/economy mode - Cruising at 140km/h and the revs are well under 3,000rpm!

Sport mode - At nearly 180km/h, the revs are barely even 3,500rpm!

The B7 - Audi introduced a heavily revised A4 in late 2004, with the internal designation of B7. However, this new range A4 still utilised the existing Volkswagen B6 (PL46) platform, a chassis derived from the outgoing B6, but enjoyed heavily revised steering settings, suspension geometry, new engine ranges, navigation systems and chassis electronics (a new advanced Bosch 8.0 ESP system). Audi's internal platform nomenclature uses PL46 (longitudinal passenger car platform, size 4, generation 6) for both B6 and B7 chassis. The Typ 8E and 8H internal designations are also unchanged from the B6 A4.

Engine 2.0T FSI
Power output 197 hp/147 kW
0-100km/h in 7.3 seconds
