If you can find a clear piece of road and put your foot flat to the floor in a RS6, the results are quite dramatic.
Roadside objects are hurled aside, and the pavement seemingly narrows as the wailing, awesomely powerful V-10 in front of you �force-fed by two turbos � pulls relentlessly until you hit a gentle, artificial ceiling at an indicated 180 mph.
The Audi RS 6 Avant is not a plane, but it feels about as close to one as you can get on the street.
Producing 580 BHP and 480 lb/ft, this big estate car hits 60mph in just 4.6 seconds and hits the limiter at 180 mph. Derestricted it would certainly go over 200 mph.
All while this is happening, you are sat in one of the comfiest and best specced interiors on the market.
Large sports seats with lumbar adjustment, heated seats, sat nav and digital TV provide all the creature comforts you would ever need.
This 2008 / 08 car in Mugello Bue looks amazing, the cream leather interior with black carpets contrasts nicely against the exterior.

LED daytime running lights
20" 5 spoke alloys
Black calipers with RS6 logo
