New details are starting to emerge about the 2013 Audi RS6 Avant.
According to Autocar, the estate will feature the company's new twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine. It develops 520 PS (382 kW / 513 hp) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque in the S8, but sources are indicating it will produce 580 PS (427 kW / 572 hp) and 699 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque in the RS6.
The engine will reportedly be connected to eight-speed automatic transmission or new seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. We can also expect an all-wheel drive system and an active rear differential with torque vectoring technology.
If everything pans out, the RS6 should be able to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than 4.5 seconds.
