2014 Audi RS 6 Avant

The high performance four door beast is back, but bigger than ever!

Sporting a twin-turbo 4.0 Litre V8 TFSI engine capable of an astounding 560hp with more than 516 lb-ft torque with acceleration times of 0-60mph in 3.2 seconds.

The new wagon also couples an automatic transmission with an eight-speed tiptronic for shorter shifts and both smoother and more precise gear changes, while AWD and a center differential aid in efficient performance no matter the conditions.

Also of note is Audi’s continued focus on weight reduction – a point of emphasis on the recently unveiled TT Ultra Quattro Concept – as the 2014 edition of the RS 6 Avant weighs more than 220 lbs less than its predecessor due to its hybrid aluminum body construction.

Complete with updates like a redesigned interior, Xenon Plus headlights, LED taillights and high-gloss black accents throughout, the 2014 Audi RS 6 Avant is expected to be offered primarily in Europe while North American audiences will likely miss out on the luxurious wagon... again :(
