About AUDI RS 6
Produced by the high-performance subsidiary company Audi Sport GmbH for its parent company Audi AG, which is a subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group, the Audi RS 6 is a high-performance variant of the Audi A6 range. Production of the Audi RS 6 began in 2002 and continued until 2008.
Both the first and second generations of the RS 6 were sold in two different body styles: the Avant and the saloon. The only trim level available for the third and fourth generations is the Avant.
It is literally translated as “racing sport,” and it is Audi’s ultimate “top-tier” high-performance trim level. It is positioned a noticeable step above the “S” model specification level of Audi’s regular model range line-up. The initials “RS” are taken from the German word “RennSport,” and they stand for “racing sport.” As is the case with all Audi “RS” models, the RS 6 is a forerunner in terms of some of Audi’s newest and most cutting-edge engineering and technology. As such, it is possible to refer to the RS 6 as a halo vehicle. The most recent iteration of the RS 6 Performance features the company’s most powerful internal combustion engine to date, matching the output of the physically larger Audi S8 Plus in terms of both horsepower and torque. However, in contrast to the A6 and S6, the RS 6’s engines in the C5 and C6 iterations have not been shared with any other model in Audi’s lineup of automobiles. This applies to both of those models. However, beginning with the C7 generation, the Audi RS 6 and the Audi RS 7 share the same 4.0L bi-turbo V8 engine. Both of these models are located at the top of the Audi S and RS range. Detuned versions of the same engine can be found in the Audi S8, Audi A8, and Audi S6.
The original Audi C5 RS 6 Quattro (Typ 4B) was initially offered as a five-door five-seat Avant, which is Audi’s term for an estate or station wagon. It was the top-of-the-line user of the Volkswagen Group C5 platform (1997–2004). Soon after the initial release of the Avant, a saloon or sedan with four doors and five seats was introduced. The aluminum frame from the firewall forward is shared by the C5 A6s with V8 engines (A6 4.2 V8 Quattro, S6 saloon/Avant) and the RS 6, which was derived from the Audi C5 S6 (which was itself derived from the Audi C5 A6). The RS 6 was derived from the Audi C5 S6. Produced between July 2002 and September 2004, it was available for purchase.
The new RS6 is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo TFSI petrol engine, just like the one found in the previous generation. However, this engine is now enhanced by a 48V belt alternator/starter mild-hybrid system, which can recover up to 16 horsepower (12 kW). The engine also makes use of a cylinder-on-demand system, which allows it to turn off up to fifty percent of its total cylinders in order to improve its efficiency.
