2013 Audi RS 6 Static Display at the Nurburgring 24Hr (May 18)

At the Nurburgring 24Hr race, the Ring Werk building complex behind the main front straight grandstands has many activities, shops, food/drink vendors, and static displays of high-end cars. Being a big fan of Audi cars, I had to take a look and photograph what they had on display. Taking center stage were an RS 6 Avant sports wagon in matt grey and an R8 two door coupe in matt blue. The matt body work color was very unique and eye-catching and certainly made these cars stand out. The shade and color of the matt paint work changed as you viewed the car from different angles. Here I focus on the Audi RS 6 Avant.

Audi RS 6 Avant

The RS 6 is the highest-performing version, and top-of-the-line specification of the A6 and is positioned above the S6 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audi_RS_6) (http://www.audi.co.uk/new-cars/rs/rs4-avant.html). The “RS” initials stand for RennSport, and mean “racing sport”, and is Audi’s top-tier high-performance trim level. The RS 6 is a mid-sized sports-focussed executive car, produced by the high-performance private subsidiary company quattro GmbH for Audi AG. Two versions of the RS 6 have been produced as a five-door Avant station wagon and a four-door five-seat saloon sedan. Specifications for the 2014 version of the RS 6 include

  • Price 55,000 pounds
  • Twin-turbo 4.0 liter V8 TFSI engine, which produces 560 hp
  • 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds
  • Eight-speed tiptronic automatic transmission
  • Permanent all-wheel drive

You should also check out the great video advertisement Audi did on the RS 6, which features the R18 e-tron quattro LMP1 race car. Would be a lot of fun to take the “R18 trout fishing”, watch the video and you will see what I mean (http://fourtitude.com/news/Audi_News_1/audi-r18-e-tron-quattro-stars-in-new-audi-rs-6-tv-commercial-perfect-fit).
