Audi RS6 Avant in Nardo Gray means business

An exquisite Audi RS6 Avant painted in Nardo Gray is currently on display in Germany at Audi Forum Neckarsulm. The properly hot wagon from Ingolstadt can be described as a supercar disguised into an all-wheel drive estate that will do 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in just 3.9 seconds before topping out at 155 mph (250 km/h). For most people this would be enough but Audi is willing to jack up the limiter to 174 mph (280 km/h) if you get the optional Dynamic package while a 190 mph (305 km/h) is possible if configured with the Dynamic Plus package.

These performances don’t come cheap as the Audi RS6 Avant carries a steep starting price of €109,200 in Germany and if you want the special Nardo Gray paint you will have to pay more. Its heart and soul is a beefy V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine pushing out 560 PS (412 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque sent to a quattro all-wheel drive system with help from an 8-speed tiptronic gearbox.

Fuel consumption doesn’t really matter on a car like this, but Audi has fitted the RS6 Avant with a cylinder-on-demand system which can shut down half of the cylinders whenever the additional power is not required. Thanks to this system and other enhancements, the model is about 40% more economical than its predecessor and can return 24 mpg (9.8 liters / 100 km) in the combined cycle.
