The RS6 Avant is already an impressive car but it appears that Audi is preparing an even more powerful version called RS6 Avant Plus. An Audi dealer in the UK accidentally revealed the new RS6 Avant Plus. Although the details were immediately removed, someone was fast enough to make a screenshot of his browser.
As a result, we found out that the RS6 Avant Plus will be powered by the same 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine found on the standard version, delivering 600 hp, 40 hp more than the current model.
In addition, the Audi RS6 Avant Plus will offer even greater performance and agility than the standard vehicle, on or off the track. For those who don’t know, the standard RS6 Avant comes with the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that generates 560 hp and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque available between 1,750 and 5,500 rpm.
With these numbers, the RS6 Avant Plus accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph.
Still, Audi offers the Dynamic Package, which increases the top speed to 280 km/h (174 mph) or the Dynamic Plus Package, which boosts the top speed at 305 km/h or 189 mph. The new Audi RS6 Avant Plus is expected to be even faster than the current model!
Ulrich Hackenberg, Board Member for Technical Development at Audi AG, quipped that with the new Audi A6, the premium carmaker is writing the next chapter in an excellent success story. He called the new A6 as a car that represents innovative technology as well as the premium claim of Audi. Hackenberg noted that the new Audi A6 is setting new standards in several technical fields. For instance, the new Audi A6 has a lightweight body that features a number of aluminum components, and is propelled by powerful and efficient engines. In addition, the new Audi A6 makes use of a sporty chassis as well as the advanced assistance and multimedia systems.
The design of new Audi A6 is marked sharp lines, taut surfaces and highlighted horizontals – all of which convey both precision and sporty elegance. The refreshed model features a number of tweaks on the Singleframe grille, its headlights and bumpers as well as on its air inlets, side sills, tailpipes and rear lights. The headlights could be specified optionally with either LED technology or Matrix LED technology, as combined with dynamic turn signals.
By employing intelligent composite construction, the body of the A6 is both rigid and safe. This systematic lightweight construction concept is underpinned by a number aluminum and hot-shaped steel components. In fact, the A6 1.8 TFSI comes with a curb weight of just 1,535 kilograms (3,384.1 lbs), while retaining excellent vibration comfort and low cabin noise.
Meanwhile, the lean styling of the exterior is mirrored inside, with every interior detail exuding high levels of quality typical of Audi vehicles. This is indicated by the use of elegant colors and carefully picked materials. For instance, the new Audi design selection offers flint gray on A6 models and salsa red on S6 versions.
