Click above for high-res gallery of the Romero Britto Audi RS4

We know first hand that the current 2008 Audi RS4 is epically awesome, but a new A4 has arrived for 2009 and following that in 2010 will be an all-new RS4 with either a carry-over V8 or supercharged V6. The dilemma for dealers is how to move the current $67,000 super sport sedan when the new ones aren't that far off. An enterprising dealer in Miami has commissioned the help of renowned pop artist Romero Britto to do up an RS4 in his trademark cartoonish art style. The car is sitting outside under the Florida sun in front of this dealership where it was spotted by a pair of editors from TopSpeed.com. They make a point to mention that the pop art RS4 is not just a vinyl wrap, but an honest to goodness hand painted job by the sought after artist whose paintings and pop art pieces go for big bucks on the art scene. We admit, the unique RS4 certainly attracts the eye, but we'd rather have one painted in plain old Avus Silver. Thanks for the tip, philippe!

      What a waste. This "art" belongs on a 2K beater and not a 67K luxury/performance car.

        Damien Hirst can sell a cow with some gold jewelry in a vat of formaldehyde for 15 million dollars; 70k isnt much for serious art collectors

      Yeah, that'll make those 70K Luxury cars move off those lots.

      Looks great!

      I would have preferred a picture of "La Virgin" on the hood and Jesus on the boot. :-)

      I would think that paint job would make them harder to sell, not easier.

      Obviously not many of you live or visit SoFla....this car would hardly raise an eyebrow here. I way even be too conservative. I see a Suzuki wrapped to look like a shrimp every day !! And that is only the tip of the iceberg....which I also see every day. Plus a dozen Quattroportes in purple, blue, orange, and green everyday at Dadeland Mall or the Grove. This ain't Omaha!!!!

      Sigh, of course, it had to be Miami...

      I gotta move away from this hell hole...

      Dealers are knocking $12,000 off sticker on RS4's around here to get em off the lots.

      I test drove one and it was fantastic. I'm horribly tempted to put myself into debt for one.

      I think the look is cool and all -- but would prefer it to be a full vinyl wrap...

      This article is a bit misleading. This paint job was completed back in December of 2007 for the partnership Audi has with Best Buddies, according to this press release on Audi of America's site:

        So if I understand correctly, the auction proceeds went to Best Buddies? So the proceeds of this sale would be directly to the dealer? Too bad there's no info on how the dealership got their hands on the vehicle; if it was from the auction it would explain the above sticker asking price.

      BMW has its "Art cars." I'm sure anyone who's been to the Munich museum has seen the collection they have including the Warhol M1. I wonder if Audi will take note of this and commission their own series?

      I don't know why some of you think this is a waste. Proceeds go to charity and making anything unique to move it for charity doesn't seem like a waste to me.

      I really like it, I think it looks great. Congrats to the one who buys it, you'll definitely have something one-of-a-kind.
