With the new, fourth-generation Audi RS 6 Avant, Audi Sport celebrates 25 years of the dynamic RS line and also 25 years of high-performance station wagons from Audi, beginning with the now legendary RS 2 Avant.

The RS models are developed by Audi Sport—the high-performance division of Audi AG—and are defined by distinct designs and a capacity to be driven daily even if these are focused on performance. Among the present RS portfolio, models which are set to excite consumers in the Philippines upon their arrival are the RS3 Sedan, RS 4 Avant, RS 5 Coupe, RS 5 Sportback, RS Q8, the phenomenal R8 supercar, and the RS 6 Avant.

Fitted under the hood of the new Audi RS 6 Avant is a 4.0-liter, twin-turbo, gasoline V8 TFSI engine that makes 600 hp and 800 Nm of torque, available from 2,050 rpm. This output allows the high-performance station wagon to sprint from rest to 100 km/h in only 3.6 seconds, and to 200 km/h in 12 seconds.

Matched to the new Audi RS 6 Avant’s V8 engine is an eight-speed tiptronic transmission tuned for optimized shifting times, and a quattro permanent all-wheel drive system that distributes 40% of the power to the front axle, 60% to the rear.


While continuing the tradition started by the RS 2 Avant, the new Audi RS 6 Avant elevates the high-performance RS models to a new level.
