Default The all-new C8 Audi RS6 Avant is here!

https://www.topgear.com/car-news/fir...ith-disturbing

The long wait for the all new C8 Audi RS6 is finally over.

Some of the Headline numbers are:
592 bhp of Power and 590 lb ft of Torque, courtesy of the 4.0 bi-turbo V8 gasoline motor.

Quote:
It delivers 592bhp and torqueís up by 73lb ft to 590lb ft, because the new RS6ís gearbox hasnít been skipping leg day and can handle the twist. Itís an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox driving the front wheels as well as the rears, of course.

When itís best deployed, youíll go from 0-62mph in just 3.6 seconds, and not top out until you reach 189mph. Along the way, the body is automatically lowered thanks to intelligent air suspension, which also works to keep the RS6 level in corners. Itís a system shared with the likes of the Lamborghini Urus, in fact.

Its an Avant! How I love these station wagons.
I think they are so cool and ultimate sleeper cars.

As much as I dislike the new Audi cuts and creases design philosophy, a near 600 bhp, knot to 60 in 3.6 second wagon will always put a smile on your face in today's electricity driven cars.

Audi sure has a sense of humor for bringing this out. The e63 wagon has company.

That's one angry looking car! Certainly not sleeper anymore with their new design language. It's only other competitor the E63s AMG wagon, a 4.0L V8 Bi-turbo as well makes 603Hp & 850Nm while looking rather bland.

Audi is never going to bring this to India. India is not a wagon friendly market.
They stopped selling the older 605 hp rs6 performance version which was around 1.65 cr ex showroom in 2018 due to complete lack of interest.

Even in states where they have decided to bring this, its a custom order car. Just like a E63 S Wagon.
