There seems to be some "RS" love in the air today over at Audi's Ingolstadt headquarters, as following the release of a fresh gallery of pictures and a video of the upcoming RS5 Cabriolet, the brand with the four rings also tossed a new trailer for the RS6 Avant towards our way.
AUDI, CAR NEWS — BY MR ON DECEMBER 5, 2012 AT 12:27 AM — NO COMMENTS
Following a leak earlier this evening we can now officially show you the brand new 2013 AudiRS6 Avant and reveal all the important information. The RS6 is lighter and more efficient than the previous model, and performance has been improved. The sprint from 0 to 100km/h takes just 3.9 seconds, and the top speed is 305km/h.
The new Audi RS6 Avant is a high-performance sports car for everyday use, according to Audi. The 4.0 TFSI, which debuted last year, has a twin-turbo setup with a peak output of 560hp between 5,700 and 6,700rpm with a constant 700Nm of torque available between 1,750 and 5,500rpm. The 4.0 TFSI delivers a sporty, full-throated sound. Switchable flaps in the exhaust system make the sound even fuller, if desired. Audi also offers an optional sport exhaust system.
The powerful twin-turbo V8 accelerates the new RS6 Avant from zero to 100km/h in a 3.9 seconds. In the standard configuration, top speed is electronically limited to 250km/h. This is increased to 280km/h with the optional Dynamic package. With the Dynamic plus package, Audi reigns in the engine only upon reaching 305km/h.
