Audi RS6 in Mayfair London. Some of you might consider the RS6 as an ugly yet fast estate car. However, the story of the RS6 is a bit different. When it was launched years ago, it was an estate car. Audi maintained this tradition and kept the RS6 in its estate form. By the way the colour is awful as well.
Over the years, we experienced a number of sedan RS6 models, but I never appreciated them. Even though the estate cars have an ugly and utilitarian design, the Audi RS6 makes up for this ugliness with massive engine power and performance figures that can make a Ferrari owner very jealous (RS6 is not an ugly car, just the estate concept looks ugly).
What are the performance figures of the Audi RS6? They are mental! The RS6 is powered by a 4-lt V8 TFSI engine with 560 HP and 700 nm of torque. Unfortunately, the engine is coupled with an old-school 8-speed automatic. There is no dual clutch automatic. The acceleration is 3.9 seconds to 100 km/h and, as usual, the top speed is 250 km/h! Also there is air suspension to keep comfortable in case you need it, and it gives you more grip on the corners with a sport differential.
Why the RS6?
Basically, the RS6 offers you a performance that can take your breathe while, at the same time, not attracting any unnecessary attention from others. The RS6 is an estate car and 99% of the population will never ever think that this boxy car is more powerful than an average Porsche 911! Literally, the RS6 is a stealth car.
