Plus performance: a new Audi RS 6 Avant opening and RS 7 Sportback performance

Increased opening and superb potency – a new Audi RS 6 Avant performance* and a new Audi RS 7 Sportback performance* tip their sold indication lines. Their 4.0 TFSI engine with 445 kW (605 hp) and adult to 750 Nm (553.2 lb‑ft) of torque pull acceleration scarcely to levels customarily indifferent for supercars. Fuel expenditure stays unvaried during 9.6 and 9.5 liters per 100 kilometers (24.5 and 24.8 US mpg), respectively, analogous to 223 and 221 g CO2 per km (358.9 and 355.7 g/mi). These are best-in-segment figures.

The new RS opening models are versed with a many absolute chronicle of a free-revving V8 biturbo energy section with a banishment of 3,993 cc. Power outlay has been increasing by 33 kW (45 hp) to 445 kW (605 hp), that is accessible between 6,100 and 6,800 rpm. The limit rpm has so also been increasing by 200 revs. A constant 700 Nm (516.3 lb-ft) of torque is accessible between 1,750 and 6,000 rpm. A sold prominence of a engine is an overboost duty permitting a motorist to temporarily pull on adult to 750 Nm (553.2 lb-ft) between 2,500 and 5,500 rpm. Overboost is activated automatically underneath full bucket if a engine/transmission environment is set to “dynamic” mode. The boost vigour indicator in a RS menu turns red when overboost is active.

The high-tech impression of a 4.0 TFSI is manifested in countless details, such as a twin-scroll turbochargers that yield for a early and quick growth of torque, a innovative thermal government and a blueprint of a cylinder heads. Their intake side is on a outward and a empty side on a inside. The turbos and their intercooler are located in a middle V. This blueprint formula in brief gas upsurge paths with minimal upsurge waste and extemporaneous response.

The highway opening of a new RS 6 Avant opening and a new RS 7 Sportback opening speaks for itself: The dual RS high-performance models scurry like supercars from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in usually 3.7 seconds, an alleviation of 0.2 seconds over a sold bottom RS model.

They need usually 12.1 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 200 km/h (124.3 mph), 1.4 seconds reduction than a bottom RS models. Audi boundary a tip speed in a customary settlement to 250 km/h (155.3 mph). Top speed can be increasing to 280 km/h (174.0 mph) on request, and 305 km/h (189.5 mph) is probable with a energetic package. In a ECE cycle, a 4.0 TFSI still consumes usually 9.6 and 9.5 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (24.5 and 24.8 US mpg), respectively, corresponding to 223 and 221 g CO2 per kilometer (358.9 and 355.7 g/mi).

These tip total for energy and potency are finished probable by a technological imagination of Audi and quattro GmbH. Engineering skills and prolonged years of knowledge with RS high-performance models enabled serve optimization of a 4.0 TFSI, from a specific engine government complement with increasing rpm and boost vigour to a Audi cylinder on direct (COD) system. At low to assuage bucket and engine speed, this deactivates cylinders two, three, 5 and 8 by shutting their valves and shutting off fuel injection. The high-performance energy section afterwards runs as a four-cylinder engine until a motorist presses resolutely down on a gas pedal again. The usually thing a motorist notices is significantly reduced fuel consumption.

The customary eight-speed tiptronic has been designed for limit sportiness in both a new RS 6 Avant opening and a new RS 7 Sportback performance. All rigging changes are quick and flexible. The rarely fit oil siphon and a heating of a delivery by a engine coolant during a warm-up proviso minister to a high potency of a classical torque-converter transmission. A hydraulic accumulator enables a start-stop function. The motorist can name between a modes D and S or change gears manually possibly by drumming a selector push or by regulating a change paddles on a RS multifunction competition leather steering wheel. In primer mode, a change indicator in a motorist information complement (DIS) or discretionary head-up arrangement indicates a rev limit. While a revoke gears of a tiptronic are closely spaced for sporty response, eighth rigging is high to revoke fuel consumption.

quattro permanent all-wheel expostulate delivers a energy to a highway and flexibly distributes torque as indispensable around a core differential. In a customary configuration, 40 percent flows to a front spindle and 60 percent to a back axle. The wheel-selective torque control intervenes as necessary. On request, Audi will mix quattro all-wheel expostulate with a discretionary competition differential on a back axle: It uses dual superposition gears to steplessly change a placement of a energy during a back spindle between a wheels. In quick curves, it literally pushes a RS performance models into a radius.

The front spindle is a construction with 5 aluminum links per circle that can hoop longitudinal and parallel army separately. The Audi track-controlled, trapezoidal couple element is used for a back axle. The links here are also finished of aluminum. Two hydraulically damped orientation join a steel subframe to a body. As with a front axle, a circle carriers and focus orientation are finished of aluminum and a stabilizer bars are tubes.

The dual new RS opening models from Audi come customary with a privately tuned atmosphere suspension. With a energetic setup, a RS adaptive atmosphere cessation lowers a physique by 20 millimeters (0.8 in) lower. The integrated damping control varies as a duty of a highway conditions, pushing character and a mode selected in Audi expostulate select. Audi offers a tauter RS competition cessation and with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) as an choice to a atmosphere suspension. It uses steel springs and three-stage tractable dampers that are connected to one another around oil lines and one executive valve each. Another option, that can be integrated into a Audi expostulate name system, is a energetic steering with a invariably non-static steering ratio.

With a Audi expostulate name system, a motorist can change a duty of pivotal components, including a steering, engine and sound management, a tiptronic and a discretionary competition differential, between a modes comfort, auto, energetic and individual. New to a RS opening models is a ability for a motorist to name a preferred mode but holding his or her eyes off a highway regulating a special symbol on a RS multifunction competition leather steering wheel, likewise to how it is finished in a new Audi R8 high-performance sports car.

The new RS opening models come customary with 21-inch expel aluminum wheels. The RS 6 Avant opening gets wheels in an disdainful 5-V-spoke star settlement in matt titanium demeanour with a shimmer incited finish. Wheels with a 5-double-arm settlement are indifferent exclusively for a RS 7 Sportback performance. These are also in matt titanium demeanour with a shimmer incited finish. Both wheels are optionally accessible in china or shimmer anthracite black, shimmer incited finish.

The 4 internally ventilated stop discs have a weight-saving call design, shred scarcely 3 kilograms (6.6 lb) compared with a stop complement with required discs. The front discs magnitude 390 millimeters (15.4 in) in hole and are gripped by six-piston calipers.

Audi also offers discretionary CO fiber-ceramic stop discs, that all together revoke weight by an additional 10 kilograms (22.0 lb). Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC) has a Sport mode that can be deactivated altogether if need be.

Exterior appearance
Diverse settlement sum strengthen a preeminent position of a dual new high-performance models. These embody a sportily designed bumpers with vast atmosphere inlets adult front and a heavily profiled diffuser insert during a rear, a shimmer black honeycomb grille customary of a RS models and a flared side sills. The RS performance-specific extraneous also facilities a quattro trademark on a atmosphere estuary channel and distinguished appendage tools in matt titanium look, including a support of a Singleframe grille, a front spoiler and a parallel flaps in a atmosphere inlets, a trim strips during a side windows, a extraneous counterpart housings and a tip corner of a diffuser insert during a back of a car. The roof rails of a RS 6 Avant opening are also finished in matt titanium look. The informed matt aluminum, CO and shimmer black styling packages are also accessible on request. Audi offers a new Ascari blue, lead paint finish as an disdainful choice for a RS opening models.

Interior and equipment
The sportily superb interior of a RS 6 Avant opening and RS 7 Sportback opening comes customary with RS sport seats with conspicuous side bolsters and integrated conduct restraints. Audi offers a seats in a tone multiple black and blue with a discretionary RS opening settlement package. This includes new chair upholstery in an Alcantara/leather multiple with a honeycomb settlement and relating resisting stitching on a armrests, control elements and building mats. Rounding out this interior multiple are knee pads in Alcantara and Carbon twill blue inlays. This worldly and disdainful CO element is interwoven with a blue thread.

The Audi disdainful portfolio allows for severely stretched tone options. For example, business can name a headlining in black Alcantara or leather-covered chair trim with blue resisting stitching.

The dial instruments underline black faces, white dials and red needles. RS logos and screens accoutre a key, a three-spoke, multifunction competition leather steering wheel, a bright entrance sills, a tachometer, a vast motorist information complement arrangement and a power-retractable guard of a MMI navigation and system. When overboost is active, a boost vigour displayed in a motorist information complement changes tone from white to red.

The new Audi RS 6 Avant opening offers from 564 to 1,680 liters (19.9 to 59.3 cu ft) of load ability compared with 535 to 1,390 liters (18.9 to 49.1 cu ft) with a new Audi RS 7 Sportback performance.

Both RS opening models underline a inexhaustible list of customary equipment. Besides a specific settlement characteristics, this includes four-zone involuntary atmosphere conditioning, MMI navigation and with touchpad control (MMI touch) and a Audi sound system. Optional high-end facilities operation from a head-up arrangement and a Bang Olufsen Advanced Sound System to a motorist assistance systems, including adaptive journey control with StopGo duty and a night prophesy assistant. Audi bond brings tailored online services on board. Passengers can roller a web openly around a Wi-Fi hotspot.

The palette of finishes for a RS opening models includes solid, metallic, pearl effect, clear outcome and matt shades. The customary colors are Daytona gray, floret silver, glacier white, Misano red, mythos black, Nardo gray, panther black, prism china and Sepang blue. Supplementing a choice of colors are a tradition finishes and matt outcome paint finishes from Audi exclusive. In addition, Ascari blue, lead is an disdainful tone for a RS opening models.

Even some-more opening with superb potency – that is what is behind a new “performance” indication nomination during Audi. The new Audi RS 6 Avant opening costs 117,000 euros in Germany; a new Audi RS 7 Sportback opening 121,700 euros. The dual new models will be accessible during dealers commencement in November.
