- 4.0 TFSI twin-turbo V8 develops 412kW/700Nm
- Acceleration of 3.9sec to 100km/h
- Advanced new lighting and infotainment technology
The pair at the top-end of the Audi Sport RS range, the RS 6 Avant and RS 7 Sportback, are back in Australia. New
lighting and infotainment technology, along with better fuel efficiency, improve the presentation of these models.
For some buyers, the RS 6 Avant is more versatile and practical, with an extra 30 litres of luggage space (RS 6: 565
litres and RS 7: 535 litres, respectively) due to the squarer load area, yet the distinctive silhouette of the RS 7
Sportback will make it the only choice for those who are style orientated. What they have in common, though, is the
ability to provide performance, thanks to the engine they share.
Producing 412kW and 700Nm, the 4.0 TFSI twin-turbo V8 engine features an innovative design, with the exhaust and
turbochargers sitting inside the ‘vee’, and intakes plumbed to the outside of the engine. This is in contrast to
The greater thermal efficiency of this lay out aids better fuel efficiency and lower emissions (now EU6 compliant).
Fuel consumption rating is lower, at just 9.5 and 9.6 litres per 100km for the RS 7 Sportback and RS 6 Avant
Performance is in the realm of elite super cars, with astonishing acceleration that sees both reach 100 km/h from rest
in just 3.9 seconds.
In keeping with the others models in the A6 and A7 model ranges, the new RS 6 Avant and RS 7 Sportback have been
refreshed, with revised front grilles, and a new headlight design, side sills, rear-end styling and interior lay out.

At the front of the new RS 6 Avant and RS 7 Sportback models are the innovative Matrix LED units, which offers an
incredible level of forward vision at night-time, without blinding other motorists. Dynamic turning indicators at the
front and rear are also available across the range – a real safety advancement in low-visibility conditions.
The new high-resolution Driver Information System (DIS) sits in between the speedometer and tachometer readouts, and
can display crystal-clear map-based navigation right in the driver’s natural field of vision. This intelligent ergonomic
innovation from Audi is powered by the new-generation MIB2 infotainment system, which itself is driven by the latest
Nvidia Tegra 30 quad-core processor.
