One complaint, why did they have to put "quattro" in giant letters below the front grille? Looks terrible to me.
It does look dumb, but if I owned the car, I would stop caring about that annoying little detail very quick

Default Audi Quattro Boss Confirms RS6 Avant Plus with Around 600-Horses!

Carscoop: http://carscoop.blogspot.com/2013/01...rs6-avant.html





Quote:
If there's one thing German carmakers love more than premium pricing and over-complicated features, it is power. It wasn't always like this, but in past two decades, Germany's auto brands are constantly pushing the limits.
The Audi RS6 Avant is a prime example of this love; it's a roomy and practical, mid-size station wagon model with all the comfort features you could wish for and then some more, which is motivated by a 4.2-liter twin-turbocharged V8 generating 552hp (560PS) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque.

With this engine, the mighty estate flies to the 100km/h (62mph) mark in 3.9 seconds, while depending on the package, it can hit a top speed of 250km/h (155mph), 280km/h (174mph) or 305km/h (190mph). That's pretty darn impressive if you ask us.

Still, Audi thinks there's room for an even more powerful, and possibly lighter version named the RS6 Plus. The man steering the fates of Audi's Quattro division, Stephan Reil, broke the news to Car Magazine. So how much more powerful will the Plus model be? "It needs to be 8-10% to really notice it," said Reil, meaning that it will have around 600-horses under its hood…

Audi first launched a limited production Plus model for the RS6 Mk1 in 2004, with a 30bhp increase for a total output of 480bhp, while the second generation RS6 Plus featured the same 572bhp V10 engine as the standard model but had added equipment features.

The brand with the four-rings also offers Plus variants of the R8 V10 with more power and a 50kg (110 pounds) weight reduction over the regular V10, and the TT RS with an extra 20hp and added equipment features.

Reil told the British publication that he doesn't see a Plus version for the RS5 as its engine "is already pretty stretched", adding that he will fight for the future of the naturally aspirated unit.

Crazy for something that will putt around town and at most be used for 2.5 seconds for an onramp blast. I feel guilty because I don't feel like I'm getting enough seat time/enjoyment out of my track car. I couldn't imagine the guilt of driving a 600hp car every day at 45mph next to Carollas in traffic. "Oh yea, well it COULD go fast, hypothetically. The internet told me so and it seems fast."

Autobahn.

Pull by Porsches on the way to drop the kids off for "futbol" practice.

(Hyperbole disclaimer, I wouldn't pull by Porsches with kids in the car.)

Oh, right. Derped by 'merica. Still, my comments stand on the M5 and its similarly spec'd cohorts.

Too big. Where's my RS4 Avant or RS3?

I mean, I want to love it, but at that weight, meh, takes a lot out of the driving experience I'm sure.
