    Re: New Audi RS6 Avant

    VW cracked that a couple of years ago...with the Veyron's gearbox! (you didn't say anything about cost )

    Re: New Audi RS6 Avant

    The car looks surprisingly well. I do remember that they covered the arched fenders on the prototypes, now I know why. Back then I was wondering if there is any need for such a car but I have to admit, without answering that question, that it appears to be very, very tempting.

    Re: New Audi RS6 Avant

    Veyron's gearbox is totally different from future Audi's S-Tronic or Porsche's PDK...

    RS6 Sedan(but, this info is NOT 100%) could be introduced at Geneva 2008 together with A/S6 facelift(different exterior rear view mirrors a la RS6 and new tail lights on sedan)...




    So if I understand correctly only the sedan is concerned by the facelift, it would be indeed surprising if the just-released RS6 Avant will be facelifted in 9 months

    Re: New Audi RS6 Avant

    In fact the Avant's rear will remain pretty much the same after the facelift, unlike the sedan's A4 and A5-like taillight theme. I assume the front will remain the same on both RS6 models?

    Re: New Audi RS6 Avant

    NO. Facelift will only be for A6/S6. Look at new RS6-it is already facelifted...

    Prime facelift patient is sedan vesion(rear lights).

    Twin Turbo V10....and it only has 20NM more than AMG's N/A 6.3 V8?

    There must be one helluva torque limiter or the torque output is quite poor in a car that weighs 2 tons.

    That's the downside of owning a company like Lamborghini: you must not build a car that has more impressive numbers than a Murciélago.

    From the video I have realised how the design is understated, maybe even more than that of the S6, for which for e.g. the day-light leds are located in the bumpers and not in the headlamps themselves.

    Oh, I forgot-300km/h delimiting option and biggest 420mm Ceramic front brakes on all current cars with totally new calipers, rears are 356mm Ceramics with 4piston calipers.

    Uh... I like it a lot... Only one question-this one or to wait 50kg lighter sedan version(if they build it)?



    Kreso, any idea why the car is so slow 0-200kph This is very mysterious...

    Re: New Audi RS6 Avant

    Markus,
    How about this-Audi specs are conservative one. This time...
    0-300km/h time is pretty good on the other hand... Around 53s...

    53s... Basically, 0-200 and 0-300 are broadly in line with the 507hp M5 then. Thus, AWD and automatic transmission absorb about 70hp. Could be true.

    In summary, the car should be quick enough. Plus it is a perfect daily driver - even in wet or winter conditions

    Re: New Audi RS6 Avant

    580 bhp! wow...
    while i have been a vivid supporter of the "just bhp doesnt make a sportscar" i really think Porsche should start worrying......

    Re: New Audi RS6 Avant

    2025kg! WAY too heavy.

    That engine will work wonders in the R8, err - R10 I mean.

    Yes, AWD, tiptronic, plus the car is very heavy. I must say that it looks absolutely delightful though .
