    It's been 20 years since Audi unveiled the RS2 Avant, the progenitor of an entire range of ridiculously fun luxury cars, including the RS3, three generations of the RS4, three generations of RS6, the RS5, and new RS7 and RS Q3. In honor of the anniversary, Audi is paying tribute to the Porsche-fettled wagon by releasing a special edition of its modern-day counterpart, the RS4 Avant.

    Called the RS4 Nogaro selection, it sports vibrant Nogaro Blue paint, which is similar to the RS2's signature color. The twin oval exhaust, window frames, and grille surround are finished in gloss black, while the roof rails are matte black. 20-inch wheels in a V-spoke pattern are the RS4 Nogaro's final exterior tell.

    In the cabin, Nogaro Blue Alcantara suede accents are optional on the door panels and seat inners (black suede is also available), while Valcona leather comes standard on the seat outers. The steering wheel, meanwhile, features Nogaro Blue contrast stitching and is wrapped in black leather. Blue threads in the carbon fiber trim and a special-edition shifter round out the interior work on this special edition RS4.

    Mechanically, the Nogaro selection is identical to a standard RS4. That means a 450-horsepower V8 is mated up to a seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission, which sends power to a Quattro all-wheel-drive system. Like the standard RS4, the special edition can get to 62 miles per hour in 4.7 seconds.

    It shouldn't come as a shock, but like the standard RS4, the Nogaro selection won't be coming to North America. Prices start at 87,300 euros for our friends across the pond, with availability slated for early 2014. The RS4 Avant Nogaro selection will make its official debut in a few weeks, at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. Scroll down for the official press blast from Audi.

    Nogaro Blue is THE colour for an RS Audi - still miss my first S4 which was Nogaro Blue.
