2004 Audi RS6 Avant Plus
(from Audi Press Release) quattro GmbH is now launching an ultimate sports version of the RS 6 developing 353 kW (480 bhp). The RS 6 plus is equipped with features echoing the world of motor sport and comes with new colour concepts.
With an output of 480 bhp, the RS 6 plus generates 30 bhp more than the standard Audi RS 6 version. The peak torque of 560 Nm is achieved across a range that now extends from 1950 rpm all the way up to 6000 rpm – in other words, the engine speed range across which this enormous traction is now available has been increased by a further 400 rpm.
The secret to this optimised performance is a new engine control unit. In order to maintain stable thermal conditions in the light of its uprated performance, the technical specialists from quattro GmbH have positioned two additional radiators behind the intercoolers.
The road performance is unequalled by any other model in the field of competitors: a mere 4.6 seconds elapse for the standard discipline of sprinting from 0 to 100 km/h. The Audi RS 6 plus hits 200 km/h in just 17.3 seconds.
Technology for the sports driver
The DRC suspension has already created a
sensation on the Audi RS 6. DRC (Dynamic Ride Control) involves
diagonally linked dampers with a central valve that reduces the rolling
and pitching movements of the vehicle body by means of the damper
characteristic, without the use of electronics.
More equipment, more individuality
The new equipment concept is a major plus
point. The Audi RS 6 plus has black natural leather seats and carbon
fibre trim strips as standard. Customers can choose between all standard
exterior colours of the RS 6 – or between the Blue, Silver and
Black/Cognac packages that are available at no extra charge.
