NSW Police given keys to 331kW 2015 Audi RS 4
The New South Wales Police Force has taken delivery of a brand-new Audi RS 4 Avant to support a variety of community and youth engagement programs.
THE LAKE ILLAWARRA Local Area Command of the NSW Police Force has just been handed the keys to its brand new 2015 Audi RS4 to be used in community and engagement programs. The livery was selected by almost 800 Audi Australia Facebook fans.
“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.”
This is not the first time the NSW Police has taken delivery of a high-performance vehicle for community and engagement programs, with a Porsche Panamera recently pressed into service. And the Federal Police recently took command of a Volvo S60 R Design.
TheRS4’s 4.2-litre FSI V8 engine generates 331kW and 430Nm of torque, this is matched to a 7-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission, the RS 4 Avant sprints from rest to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds. Despite its might and power, the NSW Police RS4 will really just be a show pony rather than a crook catcher.
“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.
