The ideal prototype. Tuned Audi RS4, which has never been

Audi has never produced a sports version B5 RS4 series sedan, not counting the two secret factory prototypes. Fredrik Almkvist knew about this sad fact and took matters into his own hands. Thus was born a beautiful Audi RS4 in color Nogaro Blue!
Almkvist done a herculean job, he built a specification RS4 sedan. Work on the project began in 2001 and ended only after 14 years. It was an ongoing process that has progressed each year c. Creating a car going in the winter, so for a short Swedish summer to try out all that was done. And now the car looks like it came off the assembly line. A resident of Malmö has replaced most of the details of the suspension and had crazy with the engine. This car has been a dream of many in the 90s, it features high performance. In addition, the S4, produced in 1998–99 were the last representatives of today without electronic ESP or DCS systems, allowing drivers to test skills, without thinking about the existing parallel support.
Fredrik said that the engine of his car a real «monster» and can rightly be called RS4 +, as it is able to deliver up to 1,000 horsepower. Engine volume of 2.7 liter BiTurbo V-6 has been subjected to numerous works, modified and configured by experts Stertman Motorsport in Sweden.
Details of the engine created on the MIRA equipment, specializing in the work of building the engines. The boost pressure is created thanks to two turbines TIAL R605, which help to achieve 630 horsepower at a pressure of 2 bar.

Moreover, the engine is able to deliver up to 1000 horsepower, but is specially tuned by experts on less power to save resources.
The main objective was to achieve a high level of reliability and cooling, and this objective was successfully achieved.
«I love to go to the track-days, I like to squeeze your car to the limit I can now pass without a full tank of arrival to the pits to cool the engine.», — Says Fredrik.

In addition, the great work has been done in the ignition system. Ignition coils are installed on the Audi R8 V-10. Wiring replaced with a new, completely different level.
During the gear shift is responsible Getrag six-speed manual production. All the boxes are produced by this company are very reliable and durable, they are designed to work with engines of the highest capacity, which was very important in the construction of for Fredrik. A shift lever created by experts JH Motorsport.
For the comfort of the ride, it was decided to pay attention to the sound of the car so as not to exceed the noise level of 95 dB. 3-inch exhaust system 034 Motorsport crowned solitary 3.5-inch muffler, providing the necessary performance.
This often from the exhaust pipe of the car you can see the flames.

The car began to weigh nearly 100 kg less and a little more than 1.5 tons, which is almost 150 kg lighter than the weights modern RS4.
With a stock 630 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque, this car can compete with many sports car. «During track days I can compete on an equal footing with the Porsche 997 GT3 RS and similar vehicles» — Fredrik grins. — It's incredible! Now, it is ideal-driven car after my adjustments in differentials and the chassis. "
Work on the transmission has been entrusted Stasis Engineering center, which managed to improve the car's handling and steering. In addition, Fredrik paid special attention to the suspension and has achieved impressive results. Now on the car set custom coilovers line PSI Raceline, typical of the highest-level cars, Swedish pride — Öhlins TTX36. Also now the car has front and rear stabilizers H & R roll bar.

"Now I have a chassis which gives excellent results on the track, while allowing to feel comfortable in the usual way. And I had to evaluate all that on the battlefield!" Almkvist drove round for 1.23.30 during Bilsport Superstage in Sweden He is ahead of Porsche GT3 RS. But Fredrik believes that there is still more serious progress.
"I put the new tires, which perform in competitions, now it is 265 / 30R19 Michelin Pilot Sport Cup on smart drives the OZ, compared to the previous with a width of 235 I realize that could significantly add to speed, especially when cornering."

Exterior has undergone more changes than it seems at first glance. RS4 front bumper for the sedan version did not exist at the plant since it was issued only in the station wagon. But it did not bother Fredrik, he based his wagon and butchered it, using as a donor. As a result, all managed to do so, if this car was produced at the plant. As Fredrik chose colors used in rare cases and order beautiful Nogaro Blue, which gives the car a sporty tone.

"I can say thank you to my friend Fredrik Bergase of Paint IT AB for the excellent work he has been indispensable when it comes to painting work." — Explained Fredrik. — We spent together a large number of hours to achieve a result. "

In addition, the design of the body is used carbon fiber (carbon) from Seibon.

The interior is also decorated in the style of Nogaro Blue, sport seats Recaro Pole Position got this color. They are made with the use of Alcantara, which also covered steering wheel.

Enjoy the sound can be not only due to the motor and a new exhaust system, but also get aesthetic pleasure from music. Now RS4 is equipped with BOSE and amplifiers, which are mounted on premium sedans Audi A8.

Fredrik of Sweden Malmö is a rightly proud, as he did the car, which many dream about, but it waited until years later, but in the version of the B7 body.
