A few days ago, the Audi RS6 Avant prototype was out testing in the snow, giving our spy photographers an opportunity to capture it in action. After that, it was high time to do a little magic and come up with a new rendering of the production version, so here it is.
While building the new RS6 Avant, Audi focused on reducing the weight by as much as possible, so the production version will have plenty of elements built from lightweight Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP). That reduction of weight will benefit the 4.0 TFSI bi-turbo V8 engine that will be under the hood of the RS6 Avant. This engine was borrowed from the S6 and S8 models, as well as the new Bentley Continental GT V8 . It delivers 500 HP, or possibly up to 550 HP, getting rather close to the 580 HP of the current RS6 Avant and its V10 engine.
Let us know what you think about our rendering in the comments section below!
