Geneva Motor Show: 2013 Audi RS 6 Avant features better performance than previous model

Article by Anita Panait, on March 6, 2013

The new Audi RS 6 Avant boasts of better performance than the previous model. Letting numbers speak, the Audi RS 6 Avant could accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in just 3.9 seconds, and could achieve a top speed of 305 km/h (189.52 mph).  While the Audi RS 6 Avant’s engine, a 4.0 TFSI, produces 412 kW (560 hp) of power, its average fuel consumption is just 9.8 liters per 100 kilometers or equivalent to 24 US mpg.

The new high-performance Audi RS 6 Avant sports car features a dynamic sporty tuning thanks to quattro GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of Audi AG. The RS models run by high-powered engines comprise the forefront of the model program, as the abbreviation “RS” refers to the most powerful version of a model series; to quattro permanent all-wheel drive; to extreme handling; to an understated appearance; and to full everyday utility.

The 4.0 TFSI engine is an ideal example of Audi’s downsizing strategy in the high-performance category. The twin-turbo V8 that powers the new Audi RS 6 Avant could provide awe-inspiring power for every driving situation, thanks to its displacement of 3,993 cc. The engine reaches a maximum 412 kW (560 hp) of output between 5,700 and 6,600 rpm, with a constant 700 Nm (516.29 lb-ft) of torque available between 1,750 and 5,500 rpm.

The engine is able to quickly develop impressive pulling power develops thanks to the two large twin-scroll turbochargers mounted together with the intercooler in the inside V of the cylinder banks. The exhaust side of the cylinder heads is also placed on the inside, with the intake side outside. This allows for a compact design and short gas paths with minimal flow losses.
