Powered by no other than Audi/Lamborghini's monstrous 426 kW, 650 Nm 5.0-litre V10.

As if a 5.0-litre V10 wasn’t enough, they’ve strapped technologies like FSI direct fuel injection, dry-sump lubrication and not one, but two turbochargers.


With up to 1.6 bar of boost pressure (23 PSI), the state of the art engine delivers 650 Nm of torque, which comes in all the way from 1,500 to 6,250 rpm. But since this isn’t a diesel, power is also exceptional at 426 kW (between 6,250 rpm - 6,700 rpm).


The might of the V10 is handled by a new auto six-speed tiptronic, which also allows for manual gear changes either using the shift lever or the paddles on the steering wheel. The car is driven via all four-wheels, however, being trademark Quattro, it’s more rear-weighted.


All those numbers mean the 4.93 metre long RS 6 sedan can go from 0 to 100 km/h in a supercar beating 4.5 seconds. Top speed is electronically-limited to 250 km/h.
