Introducing our all new 2020 Audi RS 6

Daringly different, yet unmistakably bold in every possible way. The new Audi RS 6 Avant is unrivalled and at the top of its hierarchy – a perfect match for THE-LOWDOWN.com.

EXPLORE THE CAR

THE-LOWDOWN AUDI RS 6

 

This is it. One of only a few new Audi RS 6’s destined for Australia in 2020 and the one that calls our garage home.

To decide on a project car, we went straight to the drawing board and searched for seriously high-performance contenders.

Much like THE-LOWDOWN, our project car had to be extreme to the core and fearlessly different from the norm. We considered, and debated – what would be unique and attention-grabbing, yet still practical?

From one extreme to another, the Audi RS 6 Avant topped the list. With its imposing widebody, flared wheel arches and ridiculously large air inlets, this compelling new design language leaves a lasting impression and serves as the perfect base for our project car.

RELENTLESSLY SPORTY

 

Maximum performance. Sensational handling. Intense aerodynamics. Our Audi RS 6 Avant is one of the newest cars to join the Audi R & RS Range.

Offering a supreme power package, the V8 twin-turbo TFSI engine pumps out a maximum of 441Kw and 800Nm of torque. In just 3.6 seconds, this powerhouse station wagon will sprint from zero to 100 km/h, effortlessly.

Hit RS MODE and the Audi RS 6 Avant transforms the engine and transmission management, power steering, suspension, steering and quattro sport differential.

The 4.0 TFSI produces a full-bodied and sporty V8 sound that’s distinctly Audi RS.

A VISCERAL DESIGN MEETS HIGH-PERFORMANCE DRIVING DYNAMICS

 

The body style of our new Audi RS 6 Avant is peerless in its segment. Even at standstill, the high-performance car inspires great desirability.

The wheel arches have been flared by 40mm and 22-inch wheels complement the athletic silhouette of the new RS 6 Avant.

In hallmark RS style, the RS exhaust system flows on both sides into oversized oval tailpipes. Our RS 6 Avant has also been fitted with the carbon styling package, changing the vertical wings, the horizontal blade, the sill inserts as well as the rear diffuser trim.

As a testament to Audi’s design department, only three parts from the exterior were carried over from a regular A6 Avant.

When paired to the performance and driving modes of the RS 6 Avant, this is truly a car like no other.

RAISED BY RACECARS

 

Built from Audi’s unwavering passion for automotive progress, the Audi RS 6 Avant was born from a racing pedigree.

To improve vehicle dynamics, our RS 6 Avant is fitted, from factory with RS adaptive air suspension, with controlled damping which is 50 percent more taut than the air suspension in a regular A6 Avant.

The Dynamic Ride Control module reduces pitch and rolling movements, whilst the dynamic all-wheel steering provides a more sporty and directive steering experience.

Newly developed ten-piston RS ceramic brakes grade the wheels, with disks measuring 400 millimetres at the front and 370  millimetres at the rear.

EVERYDAY FUNCTIONALITY

 

Room for everyone. The pioneering interior design accentuates with its driver orientation. But the Audi RS 6 Avant stands out because it’s attractively practical.

The luggage compartment in the new RS 6 Avant has a capacity of 1,680 litres. The split-folding rear seat bench in the ratio 40:20:40 can be released and folded conveniently from the luggage compartment.

Interior craftsmanship, fit, finish and material is the best of its grade, with a fine mix of Alcantara and Nappa leather throughout.
