Under the bonnet of the Audi RS6 Avant is a 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 engine that is capable of delivering a healthy power output of 560 hp and 7oo Nm of torque. Advanced cylinder-on-demand technology automatically shuts down four of eight cylinders when they’re not needed. Only four of the eight cylinders are active in partial-load operation depending on the driving conditions which results in better fuel efficiency. The start-stop system is further claimed to help reduce fuel consumption and CO emissions by automatically switching off the engine when the vehicle is stationary.
The engine comes paired to an eight-speed automatic gearbox which benefits from Dynamic Shift Program (DSP). Audi claims that the gear changes take place in the optimum engine speed range, hence reducing the power flow loss. The RS6 Avant also receives a permanent all wheel drive via Audi’s Quattro AWD system. The RS6 Avant can clock naught to 100 kph sprint in 3.9 seconds and is capable of achieving speeds of upto 249 kph which can be further extended to 280 kph or 305 kph with the Dynamic Package Plus.
