Article by Andrew Christian, on August 25, 2010

Audi announced today that it will offer two new limited-edition equipment packages for the RS 6 which will be limited to just 500 units. Each of these RS 6 models promises to be truly unique and will feature a Carbon design package for the engine compartment, 20-inch wheels bearing a 5 segment-spoke design and the sports suspension plus.

The customers can opt for one of two packages: RS 6 plus Sport or RS 6 plus Audi exclusive. The RS 6 plus Sport is offering an instrument-panel hood and center console covered in leather and new RS 6 logo on the front floor mats.

The RS 6 plus Audi exclusive package features seat upholstery, controls, door trim inserts, front center armrest, and the armrests in the door trims covered in leather of an attractive color from the Audi exclusive program but also a custom paint job by choosing from the color range of quattro GmbH.

Under the hood, the vehicle carries the same V10 engine delivering 426 kW (580 hp) and maximum torque of 650 Nm (479.42 lb-ft) between 1,500 and 6,250 rpm.

With these numbers, the car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62.14 mph) in just 4.5 seconds and it exceeds the 200 km/h threshold (124.27 mph) after just 14.5 seconds.

The RS 6 plus Sport and RS 6 plus Audi exclusive equipment packages are available now. The Sport package costs 3,250 euros while the exclusive package is priced at 8,310 euros.

The new Audi RS 6 Plus Sport features the sports suspension plus with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) that mechanically lessens pitch and roll. The MMI operating terminal’s shock-absorber control system offers three modes: comfort, dynamic, and sport.

While the RS 6 is considered as the high performance version of the Audi A6 line, it still features the luxuries and comfort offered by these business models. Offered by Audi unit quattro GmbH, the RS 6 features superb-quality materials like aluminum, carbon fiber, leather, and Alcantara as well as intelligent assistance systems that allow drivers to have better control of their vehicles.

One of these systems is the Audi lane assist, which gives a warning when the RS 6 inadvertently steers away from its intended lane. Another assistance system installed on the RS 6 is the Audi side assist, which provides alerts on possible critical situations during lane changes.

On the other hand, Audi adaptive cruise control helps drivers to stay at the appropriate speed while maintaining following distance. Moreover, the vehicle offers 3D road maps as well as a 40GB hard disk drive that could store up to 3,000 musical tracks along with navigation data. MMI navigation plus also features a DVD player for navigation/audio/video DVDs and a radio with dual tuner.

High-quality materials such as carbon fiber, aluminum, leather, and Alcantara create a cultivated and dynamic atmosphere in the interior. And intelligent assistance systems grant drivers yet more control. Audi lane assist warns the driver should the car inadvertently veer out of its lane.
