Audi RS 6 Avant – Rennkombi idea On 21. August 2019 From The Car Freak In Test/Ride Reports
Audi launches new RS 6 Avant and sets the bar once again further up. The Avant-concept stands for sporty Audi par excellence, and since the legendary RS2 Avant, a quarter of a century, together with Porsche based on the Audi 80 B4 developed.
And so actually a little over-used concept of the icon applies to the new Audi RS 6 Avant precisely. The peak-to-wagon from Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm will now already in its fourth-generation model; such as the first and third generations it is powered by a V8-Biturbo, only in the second Generation, the engineers made a V10 Biturbo.
The performance data (580 PS, 650 Newton-meters) are, however, surpassed by the new RS 6 Avant: The new model picks up from 4.0 litres of displacement, smooth 600 HP and 800 Nm of torque.
For the first time, the machine is equipped with a mild hybrid System with 48-Volt on-Board network and virtually silent belt-driven Starter-Generator. Up to 0.8 liters per 100 kilometers want to save Audi so. The standard cylinder deactivation is to conduct a modest Consumption is so beneficial.
The cycle fuel consumption is 12.9 liters per 100 kilometers – a very good value given the performance on super sports car level: The Sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds, and depending on the selected level is electronically limited at 250, 280 or 305 km/h. The aerodynamics, especially the roof spoiler, of course, are designed to 305 km/h.
The enormous power is routed through a ZF Eight-step automatic transmission to all four wheels; the power distribution is 40:60 rear bias, wherein the force distribution can be adjusted according to the needs of and slip very quickly between 70:30 and 15:85 front/rear adjusted.
The automatic has been adjusted compared to the previous model and re-programmed; there’s a Launch Control function for maximum acceleration.
Audi Sport has pulled the body of the RS 6 Avant in comparison to the regular A6 Avant on both sides to 40 mm in the predecessor there were 30. In fact, front doors, roof and tailgate with the A6 are just the same. For the first time, the RS6 Avant has a separate hood with a vertical curvature, referred to by Audi as “Powerdome”.
Connoisseurs will notice that the headlights are different from the A6. In fact, Audi Sport has taken over the front of the lighting units of the A7 program. Your less complex outline fits to the RS front fascia with large, geometric-sharp edges, which by the way on the rear to reflect – in the Form of a massive, perhaps a bit exaggerated according to the above-drawn Zierbalkens.
The optics can also be due to different materials, to modify. So far, the RS have chosen customers to 30 percent, the aluminum-matte look, 20 to 30 percent opt for carbon fiber trim. The Rest chooses the appearance in black. The optional ceramic brakes is now also available with red or blue calipers.
The wheel sizes are 21 or 22 inches; Audi offers an optional air suspension or, in extreme sports the fitting, and the steel chassis. In addition to the serial steering a four-wheel steering is available.
So, in the interior of the Audi RS shines 6 Avant with alone items stand. This not only includes the sport seats, but also the flattened Valance with the steering wheel fixed Aluminium shift paddles and a digital instrumentation with a decidedly futuristic RS-fashion.count
With all due luxury of The RS 6 Avant, the project, on the mark philosophically, the other RS models build on. And therefore, he is deliberately kept at the purest. Additives, purely stylistically motivated air inlets and attachments remain the other models reserved.
From the end of 2019, the new Audi is to get to and the prices should start at around 120 000 euros. (we/ampnet/mak)(photos: Auto-Medienportal.Net/Audi)
