Audi RS6 Avant: Superheld with trailer coupling

  • Site author Wolfgang Gomoll

Audi makes the strong RS 6 suitable for everyday use and increases the comfort. The core competence of the Brutalo combination is retained.

The Audi RS 6 Avant has been the dream of every traveler for 17 years. With a jacket on the hanger and rolled up shirt sleeves with full steam over the highway boards, a grin on the face of every company car driver conjures up a grin.

Current RS6 has 600 hp

It started with 450 hp with the model series with the internal code C5 before the performance settled to around 600 hp. Exactly in this brand, the current Audi RS 6 Avant with 441 kW / 600 hp, which generates the 4.0 liter biturbo, places a spot landing there. It is quite possible that a plus variant still outbids this value. However, there will be no sedan; For this, the RS 6 Avant will for the first time vie in the United States for buying the buyers.

Performance has never been the problem of the RS 6 models when it came to the corner, sometimes weaknesses revealed themselves, for example on the Audi RS 6 Plus of the C6 series, which was fired by a Lamborghini-Zehnzylinder.

Engineers with Lamborghini experience

The engineers have moved to this fact with the all -wheel steering, which has already given the Lamborghini Aventador slight feet. The trick also works excellently on the RS 6 in combination with the all -wheel drive and the limited slip differential on the rear axle.

The five -meter -long combination carvt confidently around every curve, regardless of the radius it has. In order to keep the tendency to understood as low as possible, the power distribution of the Quattro drive is generally 40: 60 in favor of the rear axle. If necessary, 70 percent of the drive power can flow backwards or up to 85 percent.

When steering, the Audi technicians took a close look at Porsche at Porsche. The control is smooth, but still precisely, only in efficiency driving mode the backing forces are greater. Speaking of efficiency: With the 48 volt mild hybridization, the fast station wagon treats itself to an average consumption of 11.7 liters per 100 kilometers.

The engineers have not only copied in Zuffenhausen: As with the BMW M models. But also with "Sport" and "Sports Plus" you are on the road pretty quickly. So the RS 6 Avant is fun and the 2075 kilogram combination puts on impressive driving performance: after 3.6 seconds it cracks the 100 km/h brand and even creates 305 km/h when they are activated.

This is now also possible with the air suspension, which has not yet been the case and the Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) chassis can be used as the towing vehicle of a team. "The RS 6 Avant is our superhero with a trailer coupling," smiles designer Andreas Joachim Koglin. Over 30 assistance systems ensure that the superhero stays on the street and the driver can relax in column traffic.

Site Audi e-tron in the test: great electric car, disappointing range

The cryptonite of this superman are the exhaust gas standards. You can see that on a small turbo ligh and the engine sound, which is rather reserved in view of the aggressive look, which escapes from the monstrous exhaust pipes. The Audi RS6 Avant is not only 40 millimeters wider per side than the normal-avant, the top model of the A6 series almost seems to be sucking up the asphalt with the huge widely torn cooler grill.

22-inch rollers find space

There are even 22 inch rolls under the wide -exhibited wheel runs. It is due to the well-coordinated air suspension that this flank rubber-minimalism does not result in a spanked coordination that puts the dental inlays to the test. This is equipped with a stiffer air balier than the Audi S6 and new ZF dampers, whose valve block reacts faster than before. This chassis creates the demanding balancing act between sportiness and long-distance suitability, which is particularly helpful in the notoriously bad US streets. But the optional DRC chassis is not too uncompromising, although it is firmer than the air spring. Now the hurry only has to be the 117.Put 500 euros on the table.

  1. It’s cute and sad at the same time
    How here the self -proclaimed experts in the environment/climate and vehicle technology … How the self -proclaimed experts in the environment/climate and vehicle technology have their say here and bring their 0815 sayings into science without basic knowledge.But hey in the political leadership is no wonder!Anyone who speaks of air letters here and mentions CO2 should be ashamed, because that’s just wrong!Is the same to say that water is fatal to fish.CO2!?Hi?Do you even know what the air consists of and what plants do and what C3 plants are and what every living being needs here?If then it is fine dust, but this creates every type of locomotion. No wonder that this country drinks through all these rose hip "ich dance names"Movements are increasingly the bottom.Approaches China, there is demok

  2. Not everyone can do it
    Study biology-biochemical environmental technology psychology and obviously have so much free time to pursue these inclinations in their free time. If the statement should shake up, I have to disappoint. I’m going to dance now my name.

  3. A horny car
    Even if I don’t think of Audi after the diesel fraud, I think it’s great that despite this electomobility waste, which is increasingly stuffing and becoming stuffy and environment, real cars are still being built, which is technically feasible. Before any environmental terrorists get snapshot: this car can only afford a few people. So just enjoy.

  4. Sorry
    With this 268g/km CO2 you can no longer enjoy anything, because if such a nonsensical vehicle is shown with EU6 temp, then there is a little upper -lazy in this state !!

  5. You can hardly believe it…
    If the eyes are surprised when reading this article and thinks, this Brutalo burner should be the answer of the German auto industry to the UN climate summit in Madrid? Some probably did not hear the shot and have been forecasting something studied economists for a long time. The future drives electrically, not only the sparrows from the roof, but also the parrots call it out of their cages. Tesla shows with his cybertruck like Autobau 2.0. and when the new work in Berlin, near KOpenick, soon takes up production, then the emission -free vehicles run off the assembly line with alternative drives that need the world and the climate. This Audi has to be described as a provocation for politics, science & humanity…

  6. @ Manfred Bender 🙂
    …… Well, if the economist say, then it has to be right. Fruher were also interviewed about specialist topics !

  7. Absolutely brilliant car…
    What bothers me Friday for Future or Greta when I can drive such a car. Great sound, low consumption for this performance, great design. Everything was 100% correct Audi. Keep it up!!! I’m thinking about whether I drive him as a company car.

  8. We’re talking about climate change and what does Audi do ???
    to build a vehicle that contains the environment with 268g/km CO2. No diesel has such negative values as this nonsensical vehicle, but gets EU6 Temp. Such awards are lobbying and have nothing to do with the climate and ludo -pursuit. Audi is here at the wooden path, I say this once as a former audio driver.

  9. doesn’t matter
    How much power you put in this box, it will always remain an Audi with a proll factor. The cart will never be more.

  10. Is the Germany’s contribution to the UN climate summit
    … in Madrid? This car and reporting show that there are still some in the auto industry & among car journalists who have not heard the shot. Present a brutal blast with pride and proudly proudly as if there was no mega problem global/climate change, is a Nogo in 2019. We no longer need cars that consume 20 l of gasoline in "ambitious driving style" (LT. Image autotest) and produce as a company car at 50 ’km 20 t CO2 a year. Twice as much as every German on average & 40 x as much as an African. What we need are emission -free vehicles with alternatives. Just like the Cybertruck of Tesla. It goes better with the climate summit. This Audi is a provocation for politics, science & humanity.

  11. Had read
    Apparently she fascinated the power that cars? Or why read such articles? Where does the energy come from in your household, where the cells in your mobile device?? Who is without guilt …, A nice Advent season

  12. 305 and only when unlocked…
    I prefer to stay with my BMW, so the Audi colleague can unlock what he wants, he always stays much second 🙂

  13. Are neither
    E-cars the measure of all things, still the acceleration values. I neither attract me a 3, 2 or 1 .And certainly not before the comma.

  14. Yawn…
    Must be this violent language? Always more aggressive? Look forward to the future when the novice drivers get all these monster motorizations into their hands. They cannot check 300 hp. Then the number of traffic fatalities grow. Whether electrical or conventional doesn’t matter.
