Introduction
According to Audi, "the RS models from quattro GMBH are the ultimate in sportiness, complemented by powerful and elegant design, exclusive equipment and perfect quality." The very first RS, a collaborative project between Audi and Porsche in 1993, was the Audi RS2 Avant (estate, or station wagon). The RS2 was powered by a turbocharged 5-cylinder engine offering the unique combination of high-performance and practical versatility. The Avant proved popular. For 2008, another Avant has been chosen to wear the RS badge. The result is the most powerful Audi in the current model range, and the most potent Audi ever designed for public roads. Audi offers the RS 6 Avant as a sole range-topping performance variant of the A6 series. Each RS 6 is identically equipped with a 580-hp V-10 engine, tiptronic automatic transmission, and quattro permanent four-wheel drive.
