DubiCars Exotic Car Of The Week – Audi RS6 Avant: The Family Estate For The Racetrack

Station wagons are associated with words like practicality, safe, and family. But in the year 2002, Audi made the most radical move by introducing performance & racing along with all the aforementioned words. What came out was the stunning Audi RS6 Avant, a station wagon that could do 0 to 100km/h in 4.7 seconds. The world went gaga over it and so did we!

Two decades later, the Audi RS6 Avant is still going strong, turning heads with its radical looks and thundering noise, while being on a school run. This gives us enough reason to pick the Audi RS6 Avant to feature in this week’s DubiCars Exotic Car Of The Week series. There is a juicy 2023 Audi RS6 Avant in black colour for sale listed on DubiCars by Al Ain Class Motors.

Before we speak more about this Audi RS6 Avant, let us look at the illustrious history of the performance estate car.

Audi RS6 Avant History

The Audi RS6 Avant has been a high-performance station wagon icon for 20 years, evolving over four generations. It all began with the C5, featuring a powerful twin-turbo V8 engine producing 450hp. This was followed by the C6 in 2008 which was powered by a 5L V10 engine producing 580hp. Next came the C7 model introduced in 2013, Audi went back to the V8 engine producing 560hp. However, the C7 was lighter by 120kg.

The current-gen C8 model continues to use a V8 engine with a 48-volt mild hybrid system, all-wheel steering, and a distinctive design. The estate in its latest incarnation produces 600hp and 800Nm of torque in the standard version. Want more? There is a performance version of the RS6 Avant producing 630hp and 850Nm. With the history covered now let us look at what the RS6 Avant from Al Ain Class Motors offers.

Engine & Performance

As aforementioned, the 2023 RS6 Avant produces 600hp and 800Nm, paired with an 8-speed gearbox on the standard version. However, Audi has made some changes and we are glad that they did. The performance station wagon comes equipped with the famed Audi Quattro AWD tech, better torque vectoring and four-wheel steering. This makes this family practical car fast around the bends. P.S. Do not try this on the school run while children are aboard.

But let us give you the performance figures anyway. The sprint from 0 to 100km/h takes 3.6 seconds and it continues to reach an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h. The racing-level performance from the family estate is teamed with a racing exhaust that lets out crackles, pops, and bangs every time you change gear or go on the overrun.

Complementing the performance characteristics of the Avant are its suspension and brakes. Audi has given it adaptive air suspension that allows for varying the ride height and damping characteristics. The suspension system is also sport-tuned to provide precise and responsive handling. The RS6 Avant offers various driving modes that allow the driver to tailor the suspension settings to their preferences. The standard brakes with the RS callipers are massive and are well-equipped to handle the performance of the beast that lies under the bonnet.

It is probably one of the best-looking station wagons you can buy. The RS6 Avant features aggressive looks from all angles to make you drool over – a family car!
