The new Audi RS 6 - Success through dynamism

Ingolstadt - 426 kW (580 hp) and 650 Nm (479.42 lb-ft) torque, acceleration from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 4.5 seconds and an optional top speed of 280 km/h (173.98 mph): the new Audi RS 6 Sedan has launched itself to the very top of the business class – as the most powerful series-production sedan in its segment.

The sporty tiptronic transmission and the quattro all-wheel drive system, which has a slightly rear-driven emphasis, transfer the immense power onto the road with no loss. Uncompromising performance is also provided by the suspension with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) damper control and the mighty brakes. Like all RS models from quattro GmbH, the new RS 6 is a car of supreme dynamism that makes no compromise in its qualities for everyday use.

A powerful partner: the sports suspension

The sports suspension handles the power of the V10 FSI superbly. A fluid-mechanical system with the designation Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) controls the work of the shock absorbers. On request, Audi is able to fit the sports suspension plus, which allows the driver to adjust the damping characteristics in three levels using the MMI operating and multimedia system.

Powerful lightweight aluminum wheels with a 19-inch diameter are standard. 20-inch wheels are available as an option. Behind them, mighty wheel brakes are fitted. Alternatively, the new RS 6 can also be braked with ceramic brake disks.

Like all Audi RS models, which are jointly developed and built by quattro GmbH and AUDI AG, the new RS 6 is impressive for its powerful characteristics – uncompromising sportiness, a dynamic and elegant design, great individuality in its equipment and superb quality. The new Audi RS 6 Sedan will be on the market in Germany from mid-October. Prices start at 105,550 euros.
