The Audi RS 6 quattro, commonly referred to as the RS6, is a mid-size sports-focused executive car, produced by the high-performance subsidiary company Audi Sport GmbH, for Audi AG, part of the Volkswagen Group.
The first and second versions of the RS6 were produced as a five-door five-seat “Avant”, Audi’s name for an estate car–station wagon and a four-door five-seat saloon–sedan. The third generation is only available as an Avant.
On November 20, 2012 Audi announced to debut an Avant version of the RS6 at the 2013 Detroit auto show. The RS6 saloon is discontinued (Possibly succeeded by RS7 sportback).
Audi revealed the details of the C7 RS6 on December 5, 2012. Its 4.0 twin-turbo TFSI V8 engine develops 553 bhp and 516 lbf·ft of torque. This will enable the RS6 Avant to accelerate from 0 to 62.1 mph in 3.9 seconds. The top speed is limited to 155.3 mph by default. By adding the optional Dynamic or Dynamic Plus package, this top speed is increased to respectively 174.0 mph or 189.5 mph. Audi claims an average fuel consumption of 27 mpg and CO2 emissions of 229g/km. In order to accomplish this Audi has added a start-stop system and a cylinder on demand system.
The RS6 Avant utilises an 8-speed tiptronic gearbox.

Arguably there is no other Estate that matches the visual impact or presence of the demonic C7 RS6 – a superior all purpose 550hp Monster. Coated in a shade of Suzuka Grey this colour suits the aggressive lines and almost military road presence of this uber estate.
The optional and arguably prettier pre-facelift Matrix LED headlamps sit outside of huge grilles dominating the frontal area, with satin black flics inset into the lower mesh diverting air to the brakes. A considered blend of matte black and carbon detail offers deliberate definition with mirror caps, sill surrounds and roof rails all set apart. With no heavy panoramic roof the driving dynamic is noticeably different on this C7 with the mass of weight centred lower in the vehicle.
The interior space is beyond question when it comes to quality, fit and finish. Diamond quilted alcantara adorns the enormous comfort seats, an unusual option offering superior levels of both comfort and grip. Trick white lighting promotes further definition to the cabin space, with extended alcantara sandwiched by carbon and leather in the door cards. The theme extends to the exclusive soft touch wheel and gear lever, smooth, clean and free of bobbles.
A vast standard equipment list extends to Nav, Bluetooth and DAB radio with the latest in a long line of BOSE stereo systems doing it’s very best to drown out that sonorous V8.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Whether it’s School on a Wednesday or Spa on a Weekend – the C7 has it covered. Sensational sound and pace defy the weight and footprint of the car, absorbing and addictive in equal measure with the Quattro 4wd generating huge levels of grip allowing you to exploit the twin-turbo charged V8 whether conditions are wet or dry. A bonkers OEM sports exhaust and raised mph limit feature as part of Dynamic Pack plus.
Audi Drive select allows the attitude of the gearbox and throttle to change significantly, with the cylinder on demand (COD) system temporarily switching off four cylinders during part-load operation a deciding factor for efficiency.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The 20 inch wheels offer better balance with respect to ride / handling and in this case they are unmarked shrouded in ContiSport 5p rubber, all with reasonable tread remaining.
The RS brakes offer uncompromising performance; mammoth optional 420mm Carbon Ceramic ‘dinner plates’ are tasked with drawing the 1,950kg to a halt without fuss.
This C7 was sold by Stratford Audi in September of 2013 and has had 2 private owners from new.
Servicing has been carried out by the main dealer, as per the manufacturers schedule, with an indicated 4200 miles / 210 days until the next oil service on the OBC. The next Inspection is not for another 12,800 miles. The car is covered under Audi’s extended warranty till the end of this year for complete peace of mind.
Both the full book pack and spare keys are present in the history file.
