2013 Audi RS6 Avant Officially Unveiled

Here's the ultimate wagon! Audi has released the details and photos of the 2013 Audi RS6 Avant, which packs a twin-turbo 4.0L V8 with 560 hp 516 lb-ft of torque. The twin-turbo V8 accelerates the new Audi RS 6 Avant from 0-62 mph in 3.9 seconds. In the standard configuration, top speed is electronically limited to 155.34 mph. This is increased to 174 mph with the optional Dynamic package and with the Dynamic plus package, the top speed increases to 190 mph.


The V8 is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system. The new RS6 Avant is the first RS model from Audi to come standard with a specifically tuned air suspension. The dynamic setup of the RS 6 adaptive air suspension lowers the body by 20 millimeters. Audi also offers the tauter sport suspension plus with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) as an alternative to the RS 6 adaptive air suspension. The new Audi RS 6 Avant comes standard with high-gloss, 20-inch, forged wheels in a seven twin-spoke design. Optional 21-inch cast wheels are available in three versions: high-gloss silver, polished black and polished titanium-look.


On the outside the RS6 Avant gets a few upgrades like the matte aluminum applications on the body, the high-gloss black protective grille at the front of the car, the bumpers, the fender, sill flares and the large roof spoiler. At the rear of the car the diffuser and the two large, elliptical exhaust tailpipes let you know that this is one special wagon. Two optional appearance packages - Matte Aluminum or Carbon - further customize the look and include such things as quattro badges on the central front air inlet. With the Carbon appearance package, the front splitter and the diffuser are even more boldly shaped. The new Audi RS 6 Avant is available in nine exterior colors, including the exclusive shade Daytona Gray matte. Additional options from the Audi exclusive range offer numerous opportunities for customization.
