2014 Audi RS6 Avant shines in Geneva

2014 Audi RS6 Avant

Goes on sale this summer

The world premiere of the 2014 Audi RS6 Avant has occurred yesterday at the dawn of the Geneva Motor Show.

Set to go on sale this summer, the new RS6 Avant is powered by a twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter engine generating 560 HP (412 kW) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque. The power unit is linked to an 8-speed tiptronic gearbox and the proprietary quattro AWD system with a torque vectoring differential.

As a result of this setup, the hot wagon will need just 3.9 seconds until the speedometer reads 62 mph (100 km/h), on its way to a top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h) when fitted with the optional Dynamic Plus package.

Riding on 20-inch alloys, the RS6 Avant has a dual exhaust system, glossy black rear diffuser and a tailgate-mounted spoiler. Despite the impressive performance, the car will return 24 mpg US (28.2 mpg UK or 9.8 liters / 100 km) which makes it about 40 percent more fuel-efficient than the model it replaces.

I love all these BMW fan-boys who literally have no lives, the come onto audi articles and boast about how premium BMW's are, you mor)ns would buy sh#t if it had a bmw logo on it. You clowns are soooo f""n insecure you constantly up vote your own comments under different accounts. Ohhh do you guys feel better having more pluses beside your comment?

They should Rename it the RS-understeer. That is the only thing RS constantly brings to the table. Lol. BMW M and AMG must be flattered VW created RS to try and play with them.

Audi gets 560bhp and 700Nm of torque out of 4.0 V8, while MB gets 557bhp and 720Nm out of 5.5l V8 and BMW has 560bhp and 680Nm of torque from 4.4l V8. Audi's 0-62 time is 0.4 seconds quicker than E63/M5. You have to buy 'S' model E63 to get performance of RS6, but then there is dynamic plus package which will take power up to 600bhp for RS6. talk as much as you want, Audi is better. simple as that. They get much more out of smaller engines + AWD is as standard.

i absolutely love this car too bits don´t get me wrong but i have 2 points of criticism.1.)The quattro logo in the front grille.2.)Because of the petruding rear fenders it looks like the area around the number plate has been squashed in. Reminds me of a square button that has been pushed (note this does not happen as much on the regular models).

Impressive. I'm sure it will look better in a more subdued color like grey. Nice little details that plays well with the clean lines of the car. Photo shop this car and shrink it down and there you have the upcoming RS3...

Looks a little boy racer for the price. Like something an 18 year old would drive. Also the E63 AMG S 4 matic is faster (more power/torque, same weight).

Awesome and epic car! The only thing I don't like is the color... Probably looks better in white, or grey even.

If I had to choose one car that will do everything for me, it had to be this. But 3.9s? Damn, Audi is still conservative with their estimated 0-62 times. S6 already did 3.7s 0-60 mph. This monster will do 3.5 or even less.

Absolutely stunning. There was a gray one also there, that looked even better! Worlds coolest estate for sure.
