    RS6 +






    press release translated from German to English(it may come out a little funny, my apologies):

    R-S 6 pluses: The fastest series AUDI of all times with the new AUDI A6 is sealed also the end of the RS6-Aera. To the parting AUDI with R-S presents 6 pluses an uprated version, which is not abgeregelt with 250 km/h, but only with 280 things. On the AMI in Leipzig as Avant and starting from at the end of April exclusively celebrates available RS6 plus its debut at the price of 101.050 euro. the Ingolstaedter with the special model breaks through a double premiere for AUDI for the first time the freiwillige speed 250-

    Selbstbeschraenkung. But thus not enough the superlative: The V8-Biturbo carries now 480 HP out instead of 450 HP. This makes an optimization of the engine expensive equipment possible. Due to the more Leistungr two additional wasserkuehler behind the intercoolers were positioned to the safety device of the thermal stability. The unchanged maximum torque of 560 Nm lies between 1.950 and recently 6.000/min. on - the number of revolutions volume grew thus by 400 routes. 4.6 seconds rigged of zero on 100 km/h in such a manner the RS6 plus from the conditions is to storm in 4.6 seconds up to 100 the km/h mark, speed 200 should after 17.3 seconds be reached. The electronic latch plate puts itself forward then with 280 things. To the comparison: The conventional RS6 Avant needs with 4.7 seconds only 0.1 seconds for keeps in track less on 100 km/h. For delay provide in series punched brake disks, which peep out behind the 19 tariff large five-spoke aluminum rims. On the inside a plaque proves R-S 6 pluses as the last its kind. Here in each case the last three sequential numbers of the chassis number are registered. There are in series beyond that black nature leather seats and decoration borders in carbon. With the external colors the customer from the RS6-Programm can select freely. In addition without additional price the packages Blue, Silver or Black Cognac are available. The equipment package Blue covers the external finish in the special color Sprintblau Perl effect, which is seats with black leather and silberfarbenen Alcantara Mittelbahnen referred.

    The AUDI R-S 6 pluses in the Silver edition comes along in light silver Metallic, the black seat leather stands out easily against the also black Alcantara Mittelbahnen. The decoration inserts are from matt brushed aluminum. The AUDI R-S 6 pluses with Black Cognac package is by the external finish in Ebonyschwarz with Perl effect to recognize - on the inside the decoration borders set in black piano lacquer and Cognacfarbene leather seats with black Biese of accents.

    Re: RS6 +

    Seems like a great package, but don't like the black wheels, at least form the pictures doesn't look that good.

    Even Audi can make 480Hp cars, can you imagine driving your brand new expensive 997 S with powerful 355HP and being totally smoked by a Audi Kombi with five people inside, plus the dog on the rear trunk barking at your face

    Hmm, black wheels? They look more grey to me.

    0-200 kph in 17.3 seconds, even the current 996 C2 is slightly better (latest test I saw showed 16.9 seconds).
    Top speed on the Audi is 280, top speed on the 997 S will be in the 300 range.
    No, I don't think this Audi will smoke a 997 S on the straight line but of course this is a very interesting product for family fathers who need more luggage room. I prefer a SUV though, me and my wife are stationwagon "haters".

    What exactly is wrong with the station wagon layout? To my mind, the configuration makes a lot more sense than does an SUV. What am I missing Christian?

    1. Corpse cars (I hope this is the english word for it) are stationwagons in Germany (and probably most countries around the world)
    2. they look awful
    3. it is a "typical" car for soccer moms, frustrated fathers and salesmen (station wagon and turbo diesel engine ) over here in Europe and especially Germany
    4. there is not enough (head) room if you want for example to exchange diapers in such a car (I can see you have no children, Stephen... )
    5. in winter time, SUVs rule (I remember to be the only one who was able to exit a parking lot at my hotel after a night of snowing...and I could give you more examples )
    6. today I didn't find a parking space and I put my car in a dry "canal" next to the street (only possible with a SUV)

    To make it short: station wagon? NEVER.

    SUVs have one disadvantage only: fuel consumption and probably performance (well, not necessarily a problem for the ML55 or Cayenne Turbo ).

    Re: RS6 +

    (latest test I saw showed 16.9 seconds).

    RC do you really believe that
    That magazine on the last year has made so many test drives with the most bizarre results I ever saw, I'm sure you know what I mean.

    "3. it is a "typical" car for soccer moms, frustrated fathers and salesmen (station wagon and turbo diesel engine)"

    It doesn't suit you well RC.

    Audi is just trying to sell as many as they can while they still can before the E60-M5 comes out

    Over here, all hearses (the word you were looking for) are Cadillac station wagons, purpose built. They never use Audis. They MIGHT use a 7 Passenger Cayenne, if someone really had to get underground fast!

    Over here, that's now what SUV's are. In California, by my scientific count, 95% of Hummers are driven my Moms on the way to cheerleading practice.

    That's a unique problem you have there, RC. How far over your head to you have to hold the baby when you change her?

    That's not a big deal. The impressive thing is getting back out again! OK, you win on that one.

    And besides, a Cayenne's not really an SUV, it's a Porsche!

    I traded my Range Rover for this hotshoe Volvo wagon and wouldn't go back, just 'cause it's so much more fun to drive. A Cayenne Turbo would fit the same need.
