The New Audi RS6 Avant
Certainly, we live in difficult times. The Audi RS6 even had to sacrifice two of its ten cylinders and shows a loss of 20 horses. It therefore remains 560… In contrast, the new generation is also relieved of some superfluous kilograms. Certainly physiognomically speaking, it is still more like a weightlifter than a dancer, and its mass is around 1900 kg (4189 lbs). But its “diet” based on aluminum and high elasticity steel allows it to announce increased performance. Thus, it can reach 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds (against 4.5 previously) and according to the “taste” and financial means of its owner, 155, 174 or 189 mph. Enough to stand up to a BMW M5 which displays the same power, but a higher weight.
This Audi is the first RS to benefit from the air suspension as standard equipment, coupled with controlled damping. The system is adjustable by the driver, but you can also opt for a traditional “steel frame”. The wheels in size 20 inches (21 optional) harbor discs with a diameter of 390 mm (420 mm with carbon-ceramic discs … optional). And, of course, the active rear differential (charged in addition to not squander the word option too) and variable-ratio steering (surcharge) are still in the catalog. The Bang & Olufsen sound system also requires a little extra, as the HUD. Fortunately, despite the economical crisis, and air conditioning – essential – illuminated door sills are still part of the standard equipment.
