Hot Audi RS6 in New Zealand soon

Audi RS6 Quatto 1

The new Audi RS6 has hit New Zealand and what a car it promises to be. Stay tuned to Car and SUV for our verdict when we test the RS6 soon.

A newly developed V10 biturbo petrol engine with FSI direct injection plus quattro permanent all-wheel drive puts the new RS 6 Avant out in front of the competition.

Its 426 kW and torque of 650 Nm create an unparalleled experience of power and dynamism.

The biturbo V10 accelerates the Audi RS 6 from zero to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and then on to an electronically governed top speed of 250 km/h, which can optionally be increased to 280 km/h. Its maximum torque is an awesome 650 Nm, available from 1,500 to 6,250 rpm, while maximum power output is produced between 6,250 rpm and the engine’s top speed of 6,700 rpm.

The sport suspension is ideally matched to the power of the V10 FSI. A fluid-mechanical system called DRC Dynamic Ride Control adjusts the shock absorbers at
lightning speed. In the compact, lightweight suspension system, each pair of diagonally opposite shock absorbers is interconnected by means of two oil lines and a central valve. When the car takes a bend, the valves reduce the oil flow at the shock absorber of the outer front wheel where the suspension spring is compressed. This improves support, reduces body roll and thus enhances handling dynamics.

The new Audi RS 6 will initially be available only as an Avant, offering the unrivaled combination of 426 kW (580 bhp) and up to 1,660 litres of luggage space. The launch of the Audi RS 6 Avant is set for early July 2008 and will be priced from $251,000.
