|Normal 2013 Audi RS 6 Avant|
Audi customers it seems, are becoming more and more demanding as the brand scales even higher peaks in the race to become the number one premium car maker in the world. According to an interview conducted by CAR UK, the company is about to launch an even more powerful RS 6 Avant.
The current car, which we really hope and pray comes to Mzansi, uses a 4.0-litre twin turbo V8 engine worth 412kW. Well, plans are quite advanced to up the ante on matters and introduce an RS 6 Plus kicking out around 447kW. RS Plus models are not new, but none have ever come to Mzansi. Not under official papers anyway.
Quite exciting then. More exciting is that it is not a limited edition anything and will therefore be available throughout the current A6’s lifecycle. In addition, other RS Plus models are also on the way. Current RS cars in the market include the RS 5 and RS 4 Avant, but these are not candidates for Plus treatment because their shared 4.2-litre naturally aspirated engine has pretty much reached the end of its life.
