The 5.0 L, V10, which features FSI direct injection and dry sump lubrication, will churn out 580 hp and 480 lb.-ft. of torque in Euro trim – enough to accelerate the big wagon from 0-to-100 km/h in a supercar-like 4.6 seconds, Audi says.
Its standard sport suspension incorporates a fluid-mechanical system called DRC Dynamic Ride Control, which automatically adjusts the dampers in milliseconds. Optional is a “sport suspension plus” package that offers three-stage damping adjustment.
The car comes standard with 19-inch aluminum wheels, and 20-inch wheels are available as an option. Beefed-up brakes to match the engine’s power are standard, but ceramic brake rotors are also an available option.
