2013 Audi RS6 Avant: The VideoSun, 16 Dec 2012
With the new Audi RS6 Avant revealed, Audi has delivered the first video of the new V8 RS6 in action ahead of a public debut.
In fact, for many with deep pockets and petrol running through their veins, the RS6 Avant is the ultimate ‘Q’ car; take of the RS badges and no one would know the quietly spoken Audi estate was carrying a very big stick indeed for when it was needed.
Mind you, the RS6 Avant only speaks quietly when you’re gentle – give your right foot free reign and it can bellow like a supercar – and even with a V8 instead of a V10, the 2013 Audi RS6 Avant can pull the same trick.
With stunning performance from its 552bhp turbo V8, the new RS6 Avant gets to 62mph in an almost unbelievable 3.9 seconds and, if you spend extra money with Audi for the Dynamic Package Plus, you can power on to 190mph.
With the new RS6 Avant looking like it will set the standards other super estates will be judged by, Audi has given us a little taster of not just how it looks on video, but how it sounds too. And it sounds very good.
The 2103 Audi RS6 Avant will arrive in 2013 costing from £77k.
