Johannesburg - Audi SA has come up with a 'run-out special' to help clear the decks for the arrival of the all-new A4 early in 2016.

A limited block of 1400 Sport Edition Plus styling packages will be made available from this month, on A4 1.8 FSI SE and two-litre TDI SE models only.

You get to choose from four special colours, usually only available on the RS4 - Sepang Blue, Suzuka Grey, Daytona Grey and Misano Red - with gloss black trim on the grille, window surrounds, side sills and side mirrors.

There's a sporty new front bumper and an integrated boot spoiler, matched to an S line rear bumper, and the Sport Edition Plus rides low on S line sports suspension and special 19 inch Audi Sport alloys.

Inside, a sporty three-spoke multifunction steering wheel lets you get to grips with the uprated handling while front and rear park assist help you protect the special bumpers from marauding kerbstones.

Audi SA says if you ordered an off-the floor A4 with all these extras it would push up the price by about R65 000; the Sport Edition Plus package, on the other hand, adds only R8250 to the cost of the standard model.
