2013 Audi RS6 Avant looks mean and crazy

Words cannot describe how great this RS6 Avant looks. Even if Audi continues to be criticized for having an entire range that looks all the same, this is something special, this is an easily recognizable car that will make people look twice.

Let's go directly to the technical part and realize how much better this new RS6 is over the older one. According to autowp.ru, Audi dropped the 5.0liter twin-turbo V10 with 579hp (571bhp) and 650Nm (479lb/ft) for a new 4.0liter twin-turbo V8 developing 560hp (552bhp) and 700Nm (516lb/ft) of torque.

The new engine is connect to an also new eight-speed automatic transmission which drives the four wheels via the quattro system. Supposedly will do a 0 to 100km/h run in just 3,9 seconds and will reach 304km/h (189mph). This is 0,6 seconds and 30km/h (19mph) faster than the current version.

Like i said above, this is a car that will stand out on the road, with larger wheels and wheel arches, new front and rear bumpers, side skirts, spoiler and diffuser. Even the front grille has been divided to incorporate the rather large quattro logo.

Inside we have the normal flat-bottom steering wheel, red details in the instrument panel gauges, a lot of carbon fiber and leather and Alcantara sports seats.
