One of the biggest successes with an RS badge in the history of Audi belongs to the acclaimed Audi RS6 Avant.
Apart from the first two generation of A6, the following received the RS badge only for the station wagon body. In 2019, Audi returned with the highly tuned supercar in this family-style bodywork.
Under the hood of the latest RS6 Avant there is a 4.0-liter TFSI engine. The twin-turbo unit offers a staggering 600 hp and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. This energy is sent to the all-wheel-drive system via an 8-speed automatic gearbox. The central differential is fully mechanical and distributes the torque 40/60 front/rear. If needed, when a wheel slips, the differential can redirect the torque up to 70% to the front or 85% to the rear wheels.
Thanks to this high combination of technology and power, the RS6 Avant can do a 0-100 kph (0-62 mph) launch, with the launch control setting, in just 3.6 seconds. And in 12 seconds flat it can reach 200 kph (124 mph). The top speed is limited to 250 kph (155 mph).
For the suspension, the RS6 Avant has a five link system both front and rear, ensuring better roadholding. Standard wheels are of 21” fitted with 275/35 R21 tires.
The interior is fitted with top quality materials and bucket-type seats. The Audi MMI also integrates a part for performance measurements and supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
