Audi RS6 Sedan Spied

When the 580 bhp Audi RS6 Avant was revealed, the premium manufacturer was announcing its intentions to come out at the top of the German horsepower wars.

Now the sedan variant of the RS6 has now been caught once again testing in Germany by our spies with the most revealing shots yet. The front fascia in unchanged from the avant model but we can see the rear styling mimics that of the A4. Power will come from the Avant's V10 which will give impressive performance figures of 0-100km/h in  4.6 secons.

ceven u mole. those tailights are from the A5, also present on the new A4. jesus, stop arguing, it is a great car. get over it everyone. we all now it wont do 0 - 100 as they say `cause a lot of other factors are involved: like the wind, the surface they tested it on and so on and so forth. and homer, go drive ur mercedes if this is old..u octogenarian dope. and stop it with the "which pic is photoshoped or not"....u artists.

Gosh this car looks sooo boring and old man to me. Almost like I'd age to 50+ the minute I stepped into it.

I agree with Xanavi, especially now that new Audi's are going to get the new side styling ron the A4/5 and the snout from the A4/5 9already applied to the A3 for the refresh). Audi's "hoffmeister Kink" will be this new wave-shape along the sides, which I personnaly, like very much. I do agree that the current A6 and A8 along with the (early) previous generation A$ were soap-on-a-chassis, but the new designs keeps getting better and better.

I agree about the AWD and getting power to the road. As far a turbos being more fun, the issue is lies with the lag response unlike a NA engine where the power is at all levels of the RPM band instantly with the mash of the pettle.

The C63 is a lot lighter than the RS6 will be. Some magazines have tested the C63 and have got times down to 4.1 in 0-60. The Rs6 if not mistaken is to compete with the E63, which sits at 510hp naturally aspirated. I'm sure the 6.3 (6.2) AMG engine can produce more like in the CL63 @ 517hp. I will take a naturally aspirated engine over an "equal" HP engine, which is turbo or supercharged. A free breathing engine impresses me more than one with a turbo that has 80-100 more HP. The German HP wars? Merc just has to drop in the 65 engine in the E/CLS to dominate this segment or even better, show us what the new 6.3 AMG engine can really do!

Wisp is right about buying an RS4...but i still like the RS6 alot especially with this V10, someone said Audis are all ugly...i heavily disagree. I prefer Benz a bit from this class of car but nonetheless Audis are very nice, clean looking cars. I also like the Snout/grill alot, it gives Audis character...you know what it is when its behind you. If i had the cash for numerous cars in my garage, i'ld definitely fit an RS4, maybe an RS6

Oh well, the pics of the rear are NO SPYSHOTS .. they are photoshopped very badly i.e. the white part in the taillights is much smaller in reality *g* WCF should write, that those pics are edited. I'd like to see the real SPYSHOTS to make up my mind and I can waive those bad "Artist Impressions"

Thanx for the info sub39h. On a different issue now. Car makers try to differentiate their cars (most prominently the front grill) so as to at least entice a family into buying more than one of their cars and also to give the buyers the satisfaction of "mine is bigger than yours". The big blip with Audi is that there succesful Gothic grill has got to their heads such that it's all they dream of. I mean who would buy an A6 when you can get even better technology now and the same interior set up as well as almost identical dimensions in the new A4. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot. Of all their cars i think the R8 and S5 are the best lookers and should be the only two to deserve that aggresive look. The rest should get a hyundai look.

Yes, they are all ugly, having a shape of hand soap, nothing exciting. None of them has a unique external feature that can help one distinguish an Audi from a distance.

Audi needs to develop a Hoffmeister Kink as well. It'll make their car look better. I ain't digging the windows

I don't get this, how can a Merc C63 AMG detuned power unit sprint from o to 100 in 4.5 secs as claimed by themselves whilst a biturbo V10 RS6 do the same distance in only 4.6 secs. Someone must be lying here and i bet it's Merc coz there's no way i see that C 63 natural aspirated car beating a V10 bit turbo. Can someone please confirm if at all Mercs figures are proven, coz then i'll take my hat off to them coz thats super fast for a detuned engine.
