In the 25-year history of the Audi RS, not once has it been offered in North American markets … until now. The Audi RS 6 Avant offers high-performance and an exhilarating driving experienceperfect for vehicle enthusiasts around the world.   

 

Powering the RS 6 Avant is a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that delivers 600 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed Tiptronic transmission comes standard and features optimized shift times. A new launch control function transmits the power from the engine to the Quattro all-wheel drive. Additional traction across each axle is achieved using an individual-wheel braking application through the wheel-selective torque control. The Quattro sport differential increases cornering agility by splitting torque between the rear wheels and even has the ability to direct torque to one wheel.

 

An adaptive air suspension can be set to several modes, allowing drivers to choose between long-distance comfort and high performance. RS sport suspension with Dynamic Ride Control regulates the flow of oil to the shock absorbers to reduce pitch and roll movement.

 

The standard Audi drive select system is available on the RS 6 Avant and offers six drive modes: auto, comfort, dynamic, efficiency, and the RS-specific RS1 and RS2 modes that can be individually configured using the "RS MODE" button on the steering wheel.

 

Dynamic all-wheel steering provides increased handling and stability, while progressive steering provides precise steering feedback.

 

The exterior is made entirely of RS-specific parts. Broad flared wheel arches highlight the athleticism of the Avant, and the body has been widened by 1.6 inches. Inside the Singleframe grille, the three-dimensional RS-specific honeycomb structure is finished with gloss black. LED headlights are framed by side air inlets that open on the new RS bumper.

 

The Avant's side profile features an elongated front section, a straight roofline, and flat D pillars. Flared fenders hint at the standard Quattro all-wheel drive. At the rear, a roof edge spoiler and RS-specific bumper with rear diffuser are finished in gloss black, while the RS exhaust system flows into oval tailpipes.

 

RS accents and driver-focused technologies are found throughout the interior. Special RS displays are incorporated in the Audi virtual cockpit to provide driver's with information on acceleration measurements, boost pressure, engine oil, g-forces, lap times, power output, temperature, tire pressure, and torque.                     

 

The Audi RS 6 Avant will be available in U.S. markets in 2020.
