I’d like to tell you about a vicious cycle regarding the awesome Audi RS wagons that dominates my brain every time I think about them. I’m telling you because I believe that nobody should suffer alone, so I’m taking you on this journey with me.
The Nissan GT-R is genuinely a monster when it comes to, well, just about everything—a performance car in every regard, in almost any situation. That’s why it’s been battling the field for 10 years strong. And yet, it just got destroyed by an Audi wagon three times in a row.
Despite Lamborghini’s Stephan Winkelmann moving over to head Audi Sport GmbH—the ‘fun’ side of the German brand—no fun is to be had in anything resembling the desirably derivative Audi Sport Quattro concept from 2013. It is officially dead.
Audi is known, at least in Europe, for its incredibly overpowered all-wheel-drive wagons that are closer to the category of “hard drugs that you need to seek help for” than the category of “cars.” So with that in mind, please welcome the Audi RS6 Performance.
Professional skier Jon Olsson owns a Gumball 3000 Audi RS6 DTM. Most gearheads have only fantasized about driving a car like this (1,000 horsepower!!), but what about riding in the backseat as a passenger? Olsson teamed up with Uber to surprise unsuspecting Swedes with a taxi trip in a supercar.
[Yes, Jon Olsson’s Audi RS6 DTM attacking the snow is just as ridiculous as we expected. Go, chase the dream or something!]
We appreciate the 2014 Chevrolet SS. It is a solid take on a classic American sedan: big V8 in front sending power to the back. But there are ways it could be better. Like supercharging it and making it a wagon.
If there ever was one problem with the original Audi RS6 Avant, it was clearly the engine. The twin-turbo V8 only put out a middling 553 horses. That's it. Barely enough to crack 200 MPH. Just awful, really, for a station wagon. That's why the crazed tuners at ABT sought fit to give it an additional 177, for an even…
Swedish pro-skier and proper car nut Jon Olsson is famous for using outrageously fast cars for getting to the slopes. But for the next season, he chose an RS6 instead of the supercars we've seen before. I guess he's getting older.
The premise for the new Audi RS 6 ad is simple - Audi shows off their Le Mans-dominating R18 prototype in everyday situations and then surprise it was an RS 6 Avant all along.
If you don't live in America, you are spoiled for choices when it comes to hot rod wagons. And two of the best are the Mercedes CLS63 AMG Shooting Brake and the Audi RS 6. But which is the one to have? Let's have Chris Harris find out.
Here's a fun game: can you name the car that, in 2003, offered a combination of power, handling and technology so potent it was able to obliterate the BMW M5, the Jaguar S-Type R, and the Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG?
It's one thing to break 200 mph. It's a totally different ballgame to do it on ice.
This is Yoshikazu Ono, world famous chef at the greatest sushi restaurant in the world. This bicycle is what he uses to pick up fish from the market. His other ride is a twin-turbo V10 Audi RS6.
Ya know, the Audi RS6 Avant is pretty boring from the factory. Who cares about a twin-turbocharged direct-injection V10 delivering only 572HP and 479lb-ft of torque? APS Sportec's rectified this indignity by pushing output to a much-more-insane 700HP and 584lb-ft.
Ingolstadt's cooked up a pair of limited-to-500-units Audi RS6 packages so you and your Euro-only super sedan can feel tougher than the rest of the already-Lamborghini-engined pack: the RS6 plus Sport and RS6 plus Audi exclusive. Well, la-tee-dah.
