D he best thing about the Audi RS6 Avant is of course the engine itself , a biturbo V8, designed with a slightly long stroke, compressed 10.1: 1 and charged with up to 1.2 bar pressure. It produces 20 hp less than its predecessor - but still 560 hp. A peace pipe would never light the four-liter engine, it always burns brightly. Even before the tachometer needle passes the 2,000 rpm mark, the direct injection engine throws its maximum torque of 750 Newton meters onto the quattro drive, which sends 60 percent of this to the rear axle.

Audi RS6 Avant under 4 seconds to 100

If the exhaust flaps are set to 'dynamic', the speed swells thunderously to 6,000 rpm, the eight-cylinder doesn't like much more - it doesn't matter. Because even then, the factory specification for the sprint from zero to 100 km /h (3.9 seconds) seems credible.

However, it is doubtful whether 100 kilograms were actually saved compared to the predecessor. In curves, the power station wagon feels like what it is - large (4.98 meters) and heavy (around two tons). The slightly less front-heavy weight distribution and the clever power management of the all-wheel drive still give the Audi RS6 Avant a groovy agility for this class. Who cares about cylinder deactivation?

We have already compared the 580 hp predecessor with the competition in Comparison test between Audi RS6 Avant and Mercedes E63 AMG T .
