25 years RS, 25 years high performance wagons at Audi
With the new Audi RS 6, Audi Sport opens a new chapter in the history of high-performance Avant. Even more power with increased efficiency thanks to the soft hybrid system makes the RS 6 Avant the ideal companion for any purpose. During the first RS 6 Avant will be available from dealers at the end of the first quarter of 2020.
"In our 25-year history of RS, the Audi RS 6 Avant is one of our absolute icons with a huge fan community around the world "says Oliver Hoffman, Managing Director of Audi Sport. GmbH." We will also be launching the RS 6 Avant in North America for the first time. This will open us up, entering a new market with great potential and generating further growth. "
Wide and powerful: Exterior design
unmatched body style in its segment awakens the senses when looking at the new Audi. RS 6 Avant high desirability even when stationary The RS model shows a highly differentiated design compared to the A6 Avant main model, with the exception of the front doors, roof and rear doors, the exterior consists exclusively of RS-specific parts. the burning arches of the wheels Outline the sporty spirit and independent character of the high-performance avant-garde The striking proportions are enhanced by the 22-inch wheels
The front of the RS 6 Avant is highly differentiated and independent in the A6 Series In addition to a new hood with a powerful dome, the RS 6 Avant Not only does it take on the A7 Series headlamps, they are not only flatter and sportier in appearance but also offer the option of an RS-Matrix LED laser headlamp with dimmed Orifices as an additional unique selling point for the RS 6 Avant in the A6 family. Similar to LED Combination Rear Lights, they have a dynamic flashing light and are used during removal and locking, especially for RS.
The three-dimensional structure of the honeycomb inside the frame of one frame is shiny black. Hold. Combined with significantly flatter and wider geometry, this enhances the athletic performance of the RS 6 Avant. Frame with one frame and inscription quattro in the bumper. Beneath the standard LED headlamps, the strikingly drawn new RS bumper with side air intakes that almost touches the lower edge of the bumper. on the headlights. The designers thus have the front of the Audi R8 super sports car (combined fuel consumption l / 1
The side view shows the characteristic silhouette of Avant – an extended front end, a long straight roof line and flat D-columns supported by quattroBlister. Black-specific RS inlays enhance the flanks of the optically pronounced front gust. The dynamic rear end is shaped by a Roof edge spoiler and RS-specific bumper with a rear diffuser and design elements in shiny black. Typically, the RS exhaust system runs into oval tubes on both sides. chrome exhaust pipes – RS sports exhaust with black tailpipes is available as an option.
Sovereign Powerhouse: The
4.0 TFSI powertrain in the new Audi RS 6 Avant delivers 441 kW (600 hp) and 800 Nm of torque, between 2100 and 4500 rpm, remains at this high level. In just 3.6 seconds, the high-performance wagon drives the sprint from zero to 100 km / h. In just 12 seconds, the RS 6 Avant reaches 200 km / h. At 250 km / h, the drive is electronically restricted. With the optional RS-Kombi dynamic package, it runs at up to 280 km / h or with the Dynamic plus package up to 305 km / h.
Thanks to the 48-volt main electrical system, the V8 biturbo combines outstanding performance and high efficiency. Belt starter generator is the heart of the soft hybrid system. (MHEV). With small delays, up to 12 kW of power can be recovered and can be stored in a separate lithium-ion battery. If the driver is between 55 and 160 km / h in throttle, steering the drive is one of two options: Depending on the driving situation and the adjustment in the Audi drive, select the new RS 6 Avant recovers or floats for up to 40 seconds with the motor is off. When the accelerator pedal is depressed, the starter-generator generator starts the engine again.
MHEV technology allows start / stop operation of only 22 km / h. Residual speed. This means that daily work of up to 0.8 liters per 100 kilometers can save fuel. The COD is another onboard performance module. With lower to medium loads and speeds, it deactivates cylinders 2, 3, 5 and 8 in the upper gears, shutting off injection and ignition and closing the inlet and exhaust valves. When working with four cylinders, the operating points in the active cylinders are shifted to higher values. loads in areas with a higher efficiency map, while deactivated cylinders, such as gas springs, are largely lossless.
When the accelerator pedal is actuated, they are switched on immediately and the power is switched on again. For all its performance, the 4.0 TFSI develops sporty, volumetric V8 sound. The driver can influence the sound of the engine through the Audi's drive selection system. The optional RS sports exhaust system with black exhaust pipes guarantees a particularly sporty sound experience. In RS1 and RS2 custom modes, the customer decides whether the sound is sporty or balanced. The standard eight-speed tiptronic with optimized switching times and a new start-up control function transfers the forces of 4.0 TFSI to quattro permanent all-wheel drive. The driving forces are transmitted at a ratio of 40:60 through a purely mechanically operated center differential distributed between the front and rear axles. If slipping occurs on one wheel, more torque is automatically driven to the axle with better traction – up to 70 percent can flow forward, up to 85 percent back.
Selective wheel torque control optimizes the agile and safe handling of the new RS 6 Avant – it slightly brakes the inner wheel brakes before they can slip. The quattro Sport differential in the Dynamic Package and Dynamic Package plus options shifts torque during dynamic steering between the rear wheels and improves traction, stability and dynamics. Even more flexible: the chassis In the new RS 6 Avant, the five-link front and rear axle processes separately acting longitudinal and transverse forces. The handlebars and the shoulder straps are made of aluminum in wide areas. The route is 1668 millimeters in front and 1651 millimeters in the rear. Standard RS Air Suspension with Adjusted Shock Absorber Suspension is RS specific and thanks to the new air spring module at 50% top speed of 305 km / h for the first time in combination with the Dynamic Plus package, adjustable in several mode and integrate automatic level compensation.
The body of the new RS 6 Avant is 20 millimeters lower. than the standard-suspension Audi A6 Avant at 120 km / h and goes down ten more millimeters. Lift mode lifts the car at a low speed of 20 millimeters. The RS-based sports suspension with air suspension provides the driver with a free choice between long-distance comfort and maximum performance.
Alternatively, RS Sport Suspension plus Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) is also available. Works with steel springs and three-stage adjustable dampers, which are connected through diagonal oil lines. and the central valve are interconnected. With a quick turn, the valves act as follows in the oil flow at the front spring shock absorber. They reinforce the support and reduce the steps and movements of the roller. They attach the RS 6 Avant nochenger to the road and improve steering. A new generation of dampers with integrated switching valve ensures a clearly noticeable distribution between the different modes of Audi drive select.
The new RS 6 Avant comes standard with progressive direct sport transmission control. By increasing the steering angle, it creates significantly greater recovery forces for more precise feedback. Their newly developed servos create a direct connection between the driver and the road. Optional with the Dynamic Package and Dynamic Package Plus, the new RS 6 Avant has dynamic all-wheel steering. It combines dynamic control of the front axle, which uses stepless shaft-mounted transmission with separate rear axle control by spindle and track drive. At low speed, make the rear wheels up to five degrees in the opposite direction to the front wheels. As a result, the turn circle can be turned up to one meter in urban traffic and in tight turns on the RS 6 Avant, making it even more flexible. At medium and higher speeds, the rear wheels are up to two degrees in the same direction – this maintains stability, especially during fast changing times.
Audi's dynamic driving control system enables the driver to enhance the character of his changeover RS 6 Avant. There are six profiles to choose from: comfort, auto, dynamics, efficiency, and the individual configurable RS-specific RS1 and RS2 modes, which can be activated directly via the steering wheel button. "RS-MODE" can be activated. RS-specific displays open automatically in Audi's virtual cockpit. Audi's powertrain selection system influences, among other things, engine and transmission control, steering assist, chassis, all-wheel-drive control, quattro sports differential, engine sound and automatic climate control features. RS2 mode is specially designed for electronic stabilization control. ESC directly by pressing a key. As standard, the new RS 6 Avant rolls on 21-inch alloy wheels with 10 spokes, covered with 275/35 series tires. Optionally, there is a RS-specific 5V spoke 22-inch trapezoidal wheel with 285/30 tires in option silver, titanium optical mat, mirror finished and anthracite black gloss, shiny. The brake calipers of the RS brake system of steel with internally ventilated perforated discs (420 mm front and 370 mm rear) are painted black as standard. Red. With the optional RS ceramic brake, the calipers are available in gray, red or blue. is performed. Its panels are 440 millimeters (front) and 370 millimeters (rear). (back). The newly developed RS ceramic brake system weighs a total of about 34 pounds. less than its steel counterpart, thus reducing undiluted masses. The ESC Electronic Regulator is sport mode or can be switched off completely.
