Harnessing such urge is a new six-speed tiptronic gearbox with change times of only a tenth of a second that can be operated in full auto or with paddles behind the steering wheel.
Drive goes all wheels through an extremely sporty, rear-weighted quattro drive train.
“Dynamic” shock-absorbers adjust to suit the road surface and driving style and the stability control can be configured for sportier driving styles – or even switched off if you really know you are that good.
The exclusivity of the RS6, Audi says, is reflected in a cabin lined with fine materials and fitted with specially sculpted sports seats. Standard equipment is comprehensive and includes an exclusive RS steering wheel, a multiple-speaker Bose sound system, Navigation Plus, a colour driver information system that shows lap timer and boost pressure, and carbon inlays.
