The New RS6 Avant Just Got Revealed And It's More Kick A** Than Ever
The Audi RS6 Avant is the only Audi I'm a real fan of. And their newest iteration hasn't disappointed.
Imagine you're stopped at the lights in your station wagon, kids secured in baby seats in the back seat, nice and safe and some yob pulls up beside you in his top to bottom modified piece of street trash with a smug look on his face. He starts revving his terrible modified 4 cylinder engine and it crackles as if he's Paul Walker.
But you aren't driving any typical station wagon, oh no. You're driving an Audi RS6 Avant. An AWD, 4.0 litre V8 sleeper which has no problem gobbling anything in it's path. And thing is, you know. You know that the power is so available, and so instant that you don't even need to break the speed limit to show this little punk he needs to go and sit at home with his Big Mac and Coke and stop terrorising little old ladies at the lights. And so the time comes, the light goes green, you plant the foot, the RS6 surges way ahead of the street trash, you get to 80kmph, let the throttle go and the street trash goes flying past you getting done by a speed camera in the process. Double whammy. And perfection might I add.
I've always loved the Audi RS6 Avant. It's Audi's attempt at being different. And it is different. It's the best sleeper to have ever graced the road. And Audi's decided to make a new one. Thanks god. So as you can see above, here it is.
You want to hear some stats, so I'll run the stats just quick for you; 591 BHP, 590 lb-ft of torque. 4.0 lt V8 engine (probably one of the last to ever be produced by Volkswagen AG), and of course Audi's patented quattro AWD system. This car will make the 100kmph sprint in 3.6 seconds, allowing it to keep it's crown of the shooting brake vehicles and has a top speed of 155mph, though sources have said it can go much, much, much faster.
The car comes standard with adaptive air suspension can can be optioned with RS Sport suspension with hydraulic adaptive dampeners. Knowing Audi and their RS range, trust me when I say the car probably both won't need it and will be worse off with it. I've always said the suspension in the RS range is it's only downfall and if there's an option to make that suspension stiffer I'd avoid it at all costs.
Of course the car will include Audi's virtual cockpit, their new dual screen center console and all other newer and sort after Audi technologies including the semi-auto driving systems in the A8 and Q8.
So my question is, if you're a family man with money and you need a car to cart around the entire family plus your surfboards and today's stupidly large and over complicated baby prams. Why would you buy any other car? Of course you can have your weekend showoff, but we all know the Audi RS6 Avant is going to be the only option for the school run. It's also great for showing punks up (mostly great for showing punks up).
