This high-performance family car is the Audi RS 6 Avant, the most radical and performance version of the Audi A6 Avant. In this article we are going to explain everything you need to know about this model, from its motorization to its design.
What is the Audi RS 6 Avant?
It is the most powerful and radical version of the Audi A6 Avant, the family car of the German brand. It belongs to the RS range of Audi Sport, which are the most exclusive and performance models of the brand. The Audi RS 6 Avant was launched on the market in 2002 and has since had four generations, the last being the one that was presented in 2019
Under the hood of this impressive vehicle hides a 4.0 TFSI V8 biturbo petrol engine with 600 hp of power and a maximum torque of 800 Nm. This engine allows you to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 250 km/h, electronically limited. If the optional dynamic plus package is chosen, the top speed rises to 305 km/h1.
The engine of the Audi RS 6 Avant features a light hybridization system (MHEV) that uses a belt-driven alternator-starter (BAS) and a 48-volt lithium-ion battery. This system recovers up to 12 kW of energy during braking and deceleration, and also allows the engine to be driven off for up to 40 seconds under certain conditions, thus reducing consumption and emissions1.
In addition, this engine has a selective cylinder disconnection (COD) system that deactivates four of the eight cylinders when not all the power is needed, thus optimizing efficiency. Switching between four- and eight-cylinder modes takes milliseconds without the driver noticing1. The transmission of the Audi RS 6 Avant is an eight-speed tiptronic automatic gearbox with paddles on the steering wheel, which offers quick and smooth shifts.
The traction is integral quattro with self-locking central differential, which distributes the torque between the two axles according to the conditions of adhesion. In addition, it has an optional sport rear differential that distributes torque between the rear wheels to improve agility and stability.
This model combines elegance and sportiness, with dynamic and muscular lines that give it an imposing presence. The body is widened compared to the A6 Avant, with wider wheel arches that house light alloy wheels up to 22 inches. The front is highlighted by the RS-specific singleframe grille with honeycomb grille and the quattro logo at the bottom. The headlights are HD Matrix LED with Audi laser light and RS-specific darkened panels, which offer precise and crisp illumination.
The side shows fluid and aerodynamic lines, with specific RS side skirts that accentuate its sporty character. The roof has a descending line towards the rear, where you can see a rear spoiler integrated into the trunk door. The rear lights are LED with dynamic turn signals and an RS-specific light animation. The rear diffuser houses the two oval outlets of the RS1 sports exhaust system.
Powerful and advanced technology for maximum driving experience.
