2010 Audi RS6 production coming to an end

Article by Christian A., on August 25, 2010

Production of the current generation of the Audi RS6 will shut down at the end of the third quarter of 2010 but is expected to return in a few years. Recently, the BMW M5 stopped rolling out while also being lauded for having set a production record. Audi had also revealed that the next generation Audi A6 will arrive next year.

Audi is expected to install this model with a turbocharged V8 engine that at the very least, will match what the upcoming BMW M5 uses.

What this really means is that we should expect this vehicle to offer up to 600hp. Audi wanted to emphasize that it started producing the existing RS6 in April 2008 and immediately delivered the model to showrooms. 

The car is offered as an estate and as a saloon. It is powered by an all-aluminum alloy 4,991 cc V10 engine that uses twin-turbocharging and FSI direct fuel injection to deliver 579 hp between 6,250 rpm and 6,700 rpm and a maximum torque of 497 lb-ft (650 Nm) between 1,500 rpm and 6,250 rpm. 

The RS6 has no fewer than seven radiators and four electric coolers under the bonnet. The powerplant is mated to a Tiptronic automatic transmission. The RS6 can accelerate to 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in 4.6 seconds and can reach 124 mph (200 km/h) in 12.7 seconds.
