Driving report Audi RS6 - the conclusion

Page 2 for the driving report of the Audi RS6 Avant: [at the beginning]

Birthday party under full load

The RS6 Avant can do two things that few otherwise can. He beams you on the highway in speed areas that have experienced only the crew of the Starship Enterprise during his own children's birthdays and he caresses you with a serenity through performance that leads to completely relaxed trips on the long haul.

I am not even surprised by the absurd performance of this two-tonne truck on the country road, the maneuverability of overtaking this possibility in places where you don't even look for the possibility with other cars - no, it's this mechanical and haptic perfection with the this phenomenal performance is convincing in everyday life. And if you take it slow - if you want to relax and enjoy the perfection of the workmanship in the interior and therefore let the distance wheel and cruise control work for you, you will achieve fabulous consumption values. Easy cruising over the track - the two-ton, 560 hp athlete in his Alibi Audi A6 Avant suit also manages to drop the consumption display to single-digit values.

Among other things responsible for this: The cylinder deactivation. Under load, the 8 pots of the RS6 provide the power to shake earthquake researchers' seismographs, but those who pick up just a small chunk of the 700 Nm torque pie make the V8 a V4 and save fuel.

If I hadn't experienced it myself - I would raise my eyebrows as skeptically at this statement as at Aunt Martha's birthday presents.

Prices and equipment

A children's birthday goes into the money. The older the children, the more. At least that's what I would say in retrospect when I think of my wishes like that. The Audi RS6 is not a gift for people who are not already out of the woods. If the related and yet so distant base A6 Avant with the 180 hp base gasoline engine can still be taken from the courtyard of the friendly Audi dealer for a reasonable € 39.550, the RS6 demands a completely different dimension.

107.900 € are theoretically on the price tag. But the list of options contains far too many temptations and who already deals with the RS6, who will not order the bookkeeper version. The test car I drive comes, thanks to Dynamics Package Plus (including the suspension of the 250 he limit to 305 km / h !!), the black Alcantara sky, the Bose sound system and the complete driver assistance package, at over 128.000 €.

That's where the fun ends - or is it just starting?

Audi RS Avant 6

I would have liked that from the Audi RS6 Avant:

  • Even more pressure? It sounds ungrateful, but after two weeks you got used to 560 PS and the next time I do not want to let the Porsche Turbo convertible driver pull away.

The conclusion:

Children's birthday for men

The Audi RS6 Avant belongs to the class of automobiles that makes men happy boys. It seems as if the 565 liter trunk is filled to the brim with happiness hormones. The time you have with the car as a car tester needs to be used just as skilfully as the few birthday hours in the year - because the moment comes when the RS6 Avant is picked up and everyday life returns and feels like a car blogger like the evening of your own children's birthday when you become aware - now it takes another 365 days until the next birthday.
