New Audi RS6 Quattro Avant
The RS6 uses the VW Group’s 5.0-litre V10 as seen in the Lamborghini Gallardo and bolts on a pair of turbochargers. The result is 572bhp, 0-60mph in 4.6 seconds, 0-124mph in 14.9s and one queasy looking Labrador.
In the RS6, the thunderous V10 uses turbocharging to achieve its phenomenal power output and, just for good measure, Audi have thrown in a pair of them. This is the most powerful car Audi has ever built. Oh and it has up to 1,660 litres of luggage space. The 572bhp courses through the quattro all-wheel-drive transmission at 6,250rpm and just as astonishingly, the 650Nm maximum torque is available from 1,500rpm all the way up to 6,250rpm.
Buyers will be facing at a pricetag of £77,625 for an RS6 which is a lot for a large estate car but not so much when you consider its performance credentials.
