The RS6 Avant is based on the station wagon body variant of the A6, and while the A6 has been around for four generations now, the RS6 first came with the second generation model.

The RS6 Avant is powered by a 4.0-litre turbocharged V8 engine churning out 552bhp and 71.4kgm of torque.

The RS6 Avant can sprint to 100 kmph in just 3.9 seconds with a top speed of 305 km/hr. Among the highlights of this car’s engine is the cylinder-on demand technology with Audi’s valvelift, which means only half the cylinders operate under sedate driving. which, coupled with the start-stop system, leads to considerable savings in the fuel consumption.

The Audi RS 6 Avant is the fourth sports car to be launched in India by the company this year after the Audi R8 LMX, the new Audi TT Coupe and the new Audi RS 7 Sportback.
