Remember when Audi offered its RS4 in saloon form? Well, a digital artist from Russia has released renderings showing an imagined modern RS4 Sedan, complete with styling cues from the facelifted A4 range.

Aksyonov Nikita created the renderings (which we first spotted over on Motor1.com), showing the virtual vehicle from the front and rear three-quarter angles.

Up front, the RS4 Sedan obviously takes plenty of styling inspiration from the existing RS4 Avant, although gains the updated A4’s tweaked headlamp arrangement as well as three prominent slits at the edge of the bonnet (as seen on the latest A1 Sportback). Round back, the fictional high-performance saloon boasts a hefty pair of tailpipes, a gloss-black diffuser, updated taillamps and a fairly subtle spoiler.

Although a B9-generation RS4 Sedan to take on the likes of the BMW M3 and Mercedes-AMG C63 seems fairly unlikely, if it did ever make it to production power would surely come from Ingolstadt’s twin-turbo 2,9-litre V6 petrol engine, which in the estate model sends 331 kW and 600 N.m to all four corners.
