Audi RS6 Avant

Due to a leak of informations in the Audi plant we found out that the more potent ”Plus” version of the Audi RS6 is going to be introduced at the end of its production, somewhere in 2011. Like the previous version the RS6 Plus will deliver more power than the standard version which delivers 580 hp.

The previous RS6 Plus was powered by a 480 hp engine, with 30 hp more than the standard. The new generation will deliver around 610+ if we consider that a minimum 30 hp will be added to the engine. Also, the production of the vehicle will be limited to 1000 units.

Before the arrival of the RS6 Plus we expect an answer from the other two important German manufacturers, Bmw and Mercedes, with their next-generation M5 and E63 saloons.

The Volvo V70 andS80 are now also available with a five-cylinder, 2.5-litre turbocharged Flexifuel engine with a power output of 200 hp and 300 Nm of torque.

Flexifuel engine for Volvo V70 and S80

Fuel consumption (EU combined) for the new 2.5-litre Flexifuel version is 9.2 l/100 km (V70 and S80) with the manual gearbox and 10.2 l/100 km (V70) and 10.1 l/100 km (S80) with the automatic gearbox.
The Flexifuel cars can run on E85 bioethanol or 95-octane unleaded petrol - or any mix of these two fuels. Due to its lower energy content, fuel consumption when running on E85 is 30-40 percent higher than when running on petrol. The exact difference depends on variables such as driving style, exterior temperature and variations in the fuel specification.

The Flexifuel variants of the Volvo S40, V50 and C30 have a four-cylinder 1.8-litre naturally aspirated engine, the 1.8F, which produces 125 hp (92 kW) and 165 Nm of torque.
All engines and other relevant components have been adapted for driving on E85 through a number of modifications.
