The powerful 4-litre V8 biturbo engine now delivers 463 kW (630 hp) and a maximum torque of 850 Nm
More powerful and faster than any RS 6 and RS 7 to date, the new Audi RS 6 Avant performance and RS 7 Sportback performance feature numerous modifications that refine their appearance and make the driving experience more exciting. The powerful 4-litre V8 biturbo engine now delivers an output of 463 kW (630 hp) and a maximum torque of 850 Nm. The opening of orders for these two new models will take place in the first week of December, with prices on the Spanish market starting from €168,000 for the RS 6 Avant trim and from €173,800 for the RS 7 trim.
At Audi, ‘performance’ means more power. In the new Audi RS 6 Avant performance and RS 7 Sportback performance, the use of larger turbochargers and the boost pressure increase from 2.4 to 2.6 bar in the V8 4.0 TFSI engine result in an increase of 30 hp in power and 50 Nm more torque compared to the basic versions. This means that the maximum power goes from 441 kW (600 hp) to 463 kW (630 hp), while the maximum torque rises from 800 to 850 Nm. The performance models accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds, an improvement of 0.2 seconds over the standard versions of the RS 6/RS 7.
Reduced insulation between the engine compartment, interior and rear of the vehicle, as well as 8 kilograms less weight, help these performance versions delight customers with a high-level sound experience. The total curb weight of the RS 6 Avant performance is 2,090 kg, while the RS 7 Sportback performance weighs 2,065 kg.
Power from the 4.0 TFSI engine is transferred to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive via an eight-speed triptronic gearbox optimized for faster gear changes. The mechanical center differential distributes the engine power to the rear axle in a ratio of 40:60 and automatically sends more torque to the axle with better traction when slipping, with a maximum of 70% to the front axle and a maximum of 85% to the rear axle.
