THE new Audi RS 6 Avant, the brand says, is a high-performance sports car for everyday use. The sprint from 0 to 100 Kph takes 3.9 seconds, and top speed is 305 Kph.
Audi reported the RS 6 Avant is lighter and more efficient than the previous model, and performance has been improved. Available to order early in 2013, the base price is €95,000.
The RS-specific engine management and un-throttled intake system also contribute to the eight-cylinder engine’s spontaneous response. The 4.0 TFSI develops 412 kW, but is content with an average fuel consumption of just 9.8 litres per 100 kilometres.
A remarkable efficiency technology in the new model is the cylinder on demand (COD) system. At low to intermediate loads and engine speeds, it shuts down the intake and exhaust valves of cylinders 2, 3, 5 and 8.
The new RS 6 Avant is the first RS model from Audi to come standard with a specifically tuned air suspension. The setup of the RS 6 adaptive air suspension lowers the body by 20 millimetres.
