The new Audi RS 6 Avant brings
winning motor sport technologies to the road
Ingolstadt - Outstanding
performance and the ultimate in dynamics – the new Audi RS 6
Avant is the high-performance product in business-class
motoring. It brings Audi’s winning motor sport technologies to
the road. A newly developed V10 biturbo gasoline engine with FSI
direct injection plus quattro permanent all-wheel drive puts the
new RS 6 Avant out in front of the competition. Its 426 kW (580
bhp) and torque of 650 Nm create an unparalleled experience of
power and dynamism. And yet the Audi RS 6 Avant also offers
uncompromising comfort and benefits for everyday driving.
The biturbo V10 accelerates the
Audi RS 6 Avant at super sports car speed, catapulting it from
zero to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and then on to an electronically
governed top speed of 250 km/h, which can optionally be
increased to 280 km/h. The six-speed tiptronic numbers among a
new generation of highly responsive automatic transmissions.
Designed for active driving, it transfers the huge engine
torques to a quattro driveline, which affords extremely dynamic
roadability with its slight rear-axle bias.
A dynamic partner – the sport
The sport suspension is ideally
matched to the power of the V10 FSI. A fluid-mechanical system
called DRC Dynamic Ride Control adjusts the shock absorbers at
lightning speed, while the optional sport suspension plus
enables the damping characteristic to be set to three different
levels. The car comes standard with 19" aluminum wheels, and 20"
wheels are available as an option. Installed behind them are the
kind of brawny brakes that are used in motor sport; ceramic
brake discs are also optionally available for the front and rear
Like all Audi RS models developed
and manufactured by quattro GmbH, the new RS 6 Avant stands for
the ultimate in sportiness, for power and elegant styling, for
exclusivity and for impeccable quality. It has become
traditional for Audi to unite the dynamics of the RS concept
with the high utility value of an Avant: The very first Audi RS
2, dating back to the year 1993, was built exclusively as an
Avant model, and customers still especially appreciate this
elegantly functional body style.
The new Audi RS 6, too, will
initially be available only as an Avant, offering the unrivaled
combination of 426 kW (580 bhp) and up to 1,660 liters of
luggage space. The launch of the Audi RS 6 Avant is set for
April 2008; its base price in Germany will be €106,900,
including value-added tax.
