Besides that, the new Audi RS 6 Avant's body plays a major role in taking its performance a notch higher. The company claims that the RS 6 Avant is now about 100kgs lighter. And thanks to its 20 per cent aluminum-based build, the car now also has better power-to-weight ratios.
The RS-specific engine management and its free intake system also contribute to the 8-cylinder engine's irresistible response. The 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 TFSI engine delivers a sporty and full-throated sound, which comes out even fuller because of the switchable flaps in the exhaust system, if desired that is.
