    Only 14.9s for a car that has - what's it exacctly - almost 600hp?

    So either that's understatement by Audi or the car has to be really really heavy.

    NO. Maybe Geneva 2008 with full A6/S6 facelift.
    BTW, engine is totally new 5.0L V10 FSI Bi-turbo...

    Other than the turbos the 5.0L engine is not the one in S6 & S8 ?

    The perfect Surf Wagon!

    Quote:
    April 2008 is the month to keep an eye on, because that will signify the showroom launch of the new Audi RS 6 Avant, Audi's most potent car ever (not counting the Audi R10 TDI LaMans racer). Audi's new family sports wagon produces an astounding 580 hp (426 kW) from a newly developed V10 FSI engine with torque peaking at 650 Nm at 6700 rpm. The new TwinTurbo V10 FSI is based on the V10 found in the S6 and S8 but has been redeveloped in almost every single aspect to attain this new level of performance.

    Needless to say that its performance times are impressive and comparible to super cars. 0-100 km/h takes just 4.6 seconds and 0-200 km/h in just 14.9 seconds with and only stops at 250 km/h because of its speed limiter. And while the car weighs in at 2,025 kg, the power-to-weight ratio is just 3.5 kg to every horsepower.




    2,025 kg
    Whatever happened to Audis aluminum technology? Not much vorsprung durch technik in a estate that weighs two tonnes

    NO. Different materials and features(dry sump!)... Now, imagine this engine in R10 with 7speed S-Tronic..

    Re: New Audi RS6 Avant

    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)?

    Re: New Audi RS6 Avant

    You're not "worried" about the weight Kreso?

    This sounds promising though:

    When accelerating, of course, its dual-branch exhaust system with two oval tailpipes produces that sonorous sporty, throaty sound - an essential feature of a high-performance automobile. Those who wish to enhance this daily delight for the ears even further may opt for the alternative sports exhaust system.

    These are standard 390mm front brakes BTW. Color is new Monza Silver Pearleffekt. 20" wheels are available in Titan finish as well...

    Re: New Audi RS6 Avant

    I have edited my post. They used the same photo for the ceramic and normal brakes

    Re: New Audi RS6 Avant

    Indeed... 420mm front Ceramics are here:

    Check out the calipers...

    Re: New Audi RS6 Avant

    Dry sump on RS6 , impressive indeed well done AUDI.

    Re: New Audi RS6 Avant

    How about it Ron, unlike the R8 you can bring your boys in this car.
    (Not to mention that you can probably smoke a R8 at the lights in the RS6)

    I know of at least one member of your family that would approve of the RS6

    Re: New Audi RS6 Avant

    great car, the only down side imo is the MMI, but I guess thats ok...

    Re: New Audi RS6 Avant

    MMI is great, best of all the car I have owned/tried...

    Very impressive and a viable option but I'm just hoping they'll make the Sedan version too

    Re: New Audi RS6 Avant

    I would be very surprised if it doesn't become available as a sedan since both the previous RS6 and the current RS4 and S6 is available as a sedan. And most importantly, the M5 and E63 AMG are both available in sedan form.

    I'm sure Kreso can shed some light on when the RS6 Sedan will be available.

    Re: New Audi RS6 Avant

    Kreso, is that a DSG gearbox or auto? I hope it is DSG.

    Re: New Audi RS6 Avant

    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)...

    RS6 Avant gearbox in 6speed TIP. S-Tronic(DSG) with 7gears that could cope with that much power and torque is still very unreliable and we have to wait(maybe forever!) for its intro. Keep in mind that even Porsche is having a hard time with this 7speed PDK(very close relative to 7speed S-Tronic or DSG)...
