The New Audi RS6 Avant Super Wagon With Forged Wheels

The latest Audi RS model to hit the streets is the new RS6 Avant based on the new C7-gerneration Audi A6 Avant. Even though it is a wagon, the new Audi RS6 Avant still asserts itself as being one of the super cars from the German automakers lineup. The new super car has taken the automotive world by storm, being featured on such websites as Car and Driver, MotorTrend, Automobile, and MotoringExposure, while becoming the poster car for many Audi enthusiasts. It combines the ultimate in vehicle utility along with performance upgrades ranging from the twin-turbocharged V8 engine to the lightweight forged wheels and precise suspension setup.

One of the most exciting aspects of the new Audi RS6 Avant is its new 4.0 TFSI V8 engine that is fed by two turbochargers placed in the "V" of the engine to reduce turbo lag. An array of new technology from cylinder deactivation, automatic stop-start function, direct fuel injection, and low-friction internals also help to reduce fuel consumption while also contributing to the high power output of the engine. The new and advanced V8 engine sends an incredible 560 horsepower /412 kW from 5,700 to 6,700 RPM and 516.29 lb-ft./700 Nm from 1,750 to 5,500 RPM to all four of the standard forged wheels. The incredible amount of power helps the wagon accelerate to 62 mph in just 3.9 seconds and depending on the optional packages that customers order, top speed can be set at 155-, 174-, or 190 mph.

The power produced by the V8 4.0 TFSI engine is sent through an advanced Quattro all-wheel drive system that utilizes new technology such as torque vectoring to all four forged wheels. An eight-speed Tiptronic transmission is the only gearbox option available and has seven close-ratio gears for quicker acceleration times while the final, eighth gear is taller to improve fuel economy while cruising.

In order to handle the high power output from the engine, the chassis had to be upgraded with new suspension components, larger brakes, and lightweight forged wheels. The suspension on the RS6 Avant uses an automatic air system that adjusts to road conditions based on the driver's settings. The standard brakes are new steel, wave discs with weight-optimized construction and six-piston calipers. As an option, customers can order new carbon fiber ceramic discs for even better stopping power. The standard wheels on the Audi RS6 Avant are lightweight 20-inch forged wheels with seven double-spokes or customers can order three different cast wheel options in 21-inch diameters.

The new Audi RS6 Avant super car is a high performance wagon that will be available in Europe in the first quarter of 2013 from the German automaker.
