Audi RS6 Sedan

German carmaker Audi developed the new Audi RS6 sedan. Under the hood the model hides a twin-turbo V10 engine capable of developing 580 horsepower and 650 Nm of torque. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and to reach an electronically top speed of 250 km/h, which can be optionally raised to 280 km/h. The power is being transferred to the road through a 6-speed tiptronic, dynamic generation of Audi automatic transmissions. The driver can also manually change gears either using the shift lever or the paddles on the steering wheel. The transmission transfers the power to an extremely sporty, rear-weighted Quattro drive train. Thanks to the improved suspension, the model provides an amazing performance experience. The front axle features four lightweight aluminum control arms / wheel. The development engineers have also deployed an exclusive damping technology. The Electronic Stabilization Program offers maximum driving fun with uncompromised safety. It offers a Sport mode and can also be deactivated entirely. The output reaches the road through 19-inch alloy wheels covered in 255/40 tires. The Audi RS6 is the embodiment of power, elegance, exclusivity and perfection. The interior is adorned with the finest of materials such as carbon fiber, aluminum, piano lacquer, leather and Alcantara in tried-and-tested Audi quality. As standard equipment, the carmaker offers the dual-zone deluxe automatic air conditioning plus, a parking assistant at front and rear, an RS leather multifunction sports steering wheel with flat-bottomed rim and a Bose surround sound system. The new Audi RS6 will be available on the market starting the middle of October. The carmaker established the starting price for the German market at EUR105.550. These are all the information available on the model.
