The New Audi RS6

The New Audi RS6

THE NEW AUDI RS6 - Are you one of those people who buy a car because of its practicalities, such as having four doors and sufficient room to put all the family and luggage, but inside yearn for something more exciting to drive like a Ferrari?

Welcome to a world when you can have it all, a family estate car that can take you from 0 – 60 in 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 189 mph.  What?  Yes, that’s right, the new Audi RS6 is indeed a family estate car, with all the usual array of benefits one would expect in a family estate car, except of course it can accelerate and hit a top speed normally reserved for Ferrari’s.

Audi RS6 Statistics

  • 0-60mph    :  3.9 seconds
  •  Top Speed : 189 mph
  •  Engine       : 4-litre V8
  •  Efficiency  :  28mpg
  •  Cost           :  Between £75,000 to £80,000

If you think about how quick the acceleration is and of course its top speed and then compare this with other brand name sports cars then you’ll quickly realize that this is a beast – it’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing:

  • Ferrari California – 0 – 62 in 3.8 seconds
  • Porsche 911 – 0 – 60 in 4.1 seconds

Introducing the all new Audi RS6 - it's a family estate car with a couple of twists. It will do 189mph and accelerate from 0 - 60 in 3.9 seconds.

Both are sports cars where you wouldn’t expect anything less, but 0 – 60 in 3.9 seconds from a family estate car.  Seriously that’s like hiding your grandmother’s teeth and then giving her chewing gum.  Sure the Audi RS6 is making a mockery of the likes of Ferrari!

Now while you may be yearning to change your existing family estate car you might just want to check the finances as the Audi RS6 is not cheap. In fact, expect to pay anywhere between £75,000 to £80,000.  No doubt you are having second thoughts or trying to work out how you can sell this one to the wife, but whichever way you look at it, it’s way above what you would normally expect a family estate car to cost, but then again your average runabout wouldn’t handle like a racing car and you would be lucky if it got you from 0 – 60 in a fortnight, but hey, you didn’t buy it for its performance, you bought it for the convenience, which is the whole point in having an estate car… Or so we thought.

There are those out there, such as the road safety charity ’Brake‘ that feel this is a step too far and that a family car, estate or saloon, has no business having performance that allows a driver to travel at excessive speed.

Of course the Audi RS6 is a mixture of the sensible and non-sensible but this offering by Audi gives more choice to the consumer and Audi does expect its owners to drive within the law.
