The new Audi RS 6 - Success
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
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
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.
