The latest version comes in Plus trim which offers...

    Paul Walker-Owned Audi RS 6 Avant For Sale

  • 2011 Audi RS5

    What better way to demonstrate four new all-wheel-drive performance cars than a trip through the Alps? Audi is kicking off its Land of quattro Alpen Tour, a 2,759-mile trip between Klagenfurt, Austria and Monaco on September 23. The tour will give the company a chance to show off its four newest RS performance models. Participants will drive through six countries over 44 Alpine passes which, as Audi notes in its press release, is appropriate considering that they will be driving four cars with four-wheel drive. The four new cars Audi is highlighting on the Alpen Tour are the RS5 Cabriolet...

    Audi Injects R18 Le Mans Racer In Its Latest RS 6 Ad: Video

    Is Audi Planning A More Powerful RS 6 Plus?

    In Audi-speak, its S models are somewhat of an equal blend of performance and luxury, while its RS models favor acceleration and handling above all else. Only the R designator (currently reserved for the Audi R8) sits above the RS models on Audi’s pyramid of performance, but a refreshed...

    Audi Bringing RS 5 Cabriolet and RS 7 To The U.S., But No RS 6: Report

    As anyone who’s driven Audi’s S6 and S7 models will tell you, the cars are distinctly different in personality, which helps Audi build a business case for both in the U.S. product line. If there’s room for an A6, an A7, an S6 and an S7, surely there's room for an RS 6 and RS 7...

  • 2014 Audi RS 6 Avant

    If you see this behind you on the road, don't bother moving over. It'll get past. The kids in the back will even wave as it goes by. It's the 2014 Audi RS 6 Avant, and it's just gone official following a spate of leaked images earlier today. Rated at 560 horsepower courtesy of a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 engine, the RS 6 gets to 62 mph in just 3.9 seconds. That puts it in Corvette ZR1 territory--with a backseat and cargo space. And it's 220 pounds lighter than the previous RS 6 Avant. Quattro all-wheel drive helps the acceleration, of course, as well as providing a fair degree of all-weather...
