German media reviews the Audi RS6 Avant is going to have an Allroad version, adding a modicum of off-road capability to Audi’s uber estate.
Audi’s RS6 Avant is possibly probably the most desirable from the number of estate cars that perform just like a supercar (think Mercedes E63 AMG Estate or Jaguar XJR Sportbrake), as well as losing the great Lamborghini V10 within the new edition from the RS6 has been doing absolutely nothing to spoil the enjoyment.
Actually, the RS6 using the 4. litre turbo is really a far greater vehicle compared to V10-engined vehicle has ever been, with performance which will shame basically probably the most super of supercars – -62mph in 3.7 seconds – and also the kind of dynamics you simply wouldn’t expect possible within an estate vehicle.
However it appears Audi aren’t quite happy with supplying a super estate, they’re intending to offer it with added butch by starting the Audi RS6 Allroad in 2016, based on Germany’s Auto Bild.
Possibly evidently from it it appears a little daft to compromise the RS6 with the addition of additional weight, plastic cladding and raising the ride height, but maybe it’s a very sensible approach to take.
There’s a really strong marketplace for high end Sports utility vehicles – such as the Porsche Cayenne Turbo and Range Rover Sport SVR – that have much more jeopardized handling than an estate vehicle, as well as an RS6 Allroad would supply performance that will shame the super Sports utility vehicles, a elevated ride height along with a modicum of off-road ability. Well, the power to get away from a muddy boot purchase carpark a minimum of.
Whether Auto Bild are directly on this or otherwise we’ll discover in no time. The claim may be the RS6 Allroad will debut in September the coming year – which most likely means the 2016 Paris Motor Show – so particulars should begin to emerge in 2012.
