Here in the UK, the RS2 is (or maybe I should say 'was') available as
either a Coupe or an Avant Estate.  They are S2s that have been
modified by Porsche.
The exterior differences are Porsche alloy wheels, bright red
calipers, Porsche styles door mirrors and a great looking front bumper
with black grills in the air ducts.
The performance specification for the Avant is :
2226 cc engine producing 315bhp
Max speed 163 mph
0-60 mph in 5.1 seconds
Top speed of 163 mph
