So Audi SA has changed its mind & the latest RS6 Avant is finally in SA.

"While not quite as potent as the five-litre V10 it replaces (in the current automotive climate that would be asking a bit much) it comes to the party with a four-litre V8 TFSI rated at 412kW and 700Nm, mated to an eight-speed tiptronic transmission and a purely mechanical self-locking centre differential that uses planetary gears to split the torque asymmetrically between front and rear axle.

The result is a practical (if pricey) family wagon that'll hit 100km/h from a standstill in less than four seconds and top out (with the optional dynamic package plus) at 305km/h. Yet, thanks to cylinder-on-demand shut-off at low revs around town, nominal fuel-consumption in the NERC combined cycle has been kept down to less than 10 litres per 100km."

PRICE

RS6 Avant 4.0T FSI quattro tiptronic - R1 465 000

Includes VAT and five-year or 100 000km maintenance plan, extendable to six years or 200 000km.

For comparison the RS7 is R1 596 000.

That's one power house wagon!

With the RS history of gearbox issues I would take the 200 000km plan.
But hell it's nice.

I wonder why no chrome mirrors? Its always been a trait of the S and RS series. Other than that, it looks good, but pricey!

Thought that as well then I dig up a little bit more.

It seems 2014 model had them. The 2015 MY was the A6 f/lift & it seems no chrome mirrors...why the hell not.

2014 MY looks better IMO.

2014:

My wife is looking for something like this. Designed for mommys and does 0 to 100 in less than 4 seconds.

She'll have to settle for the bathroom scale for now.

It's a bit more aggressive though I do agree... for me, what has always been quite special are the metal mirrors - they complete the look

Hey! That's my line :)

Yeah...for a sec I was thinking what happen to Mr PP

Caught out all the Tapatalk users. :D
