Plenty of power being packed into the all-new Audi RS 6 Avant

JonathanDecember 5, 2012

Drivers hoping to tap into the need for speed should be sure to check out the eye-catching specifications relating to the all-new Audi RS 6 Avant.

With the assistance of an ultra-efficient new downsized V8 TFSI engine, the third-generation RS 6 Avant is capable of reaching 62mph from rest in a blistering 3.9 seconds and then go on to a top speed of 189mph.

This impressive sub-four-second speed challenge is achieved by a motor that also offers smaller displacement when compared to its mighty V10-powered predecessor, as well as appealing cylinder-on-demand technology.

As such, the engine enables the new Audi RS 6 Avant to offer a peak output of 560PS, deliver a power range of between 5,700 and 6,700 rpm and constantly achieve 700 Nm of torque.

Despite all of this phenomenal power, an adaptive air suspension system will incorporate controlled damping so that every road surface can be travelled over without any compromise to comfort.

A sports suspension system complete with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) will be an additional extra, which employs steel springs and three-way adjustable shock absorbers to further enhance the car’s stability.

When it comes to the standard features of the all-new Audi RS 6 Avant, the vehicle comes packed with xenon plus headlights, a handy tyre-pressure monitoring system and illuminated entry sills.

In-car entertainment is assured via a BOSE sound system, DAB radio and the innovative Audi Music Interface.

The third-generation Audi RS 6 Avant will be released across the UK in early 2013.

However, there are many great car leasing offers on the table for drivers who want to sample the joy of being behind the wheel of an Audi car right now.

The well-loved Audi TT 1.8T FSI Sport two-door Coupe, for example, is available for just £239.99 per month and is able to achieve 0-62mph in just 7.3 seconds, while limiting CO2 emissions to a mere 149g/km.
