Audi will not offer the recently introduced 2014 RS6 Avant in the United States.

In an e-mail sent to Carscoop, Audi North America product communications manager John Schilling mentioned there are "no plans on bringing the RS6 Avant here to the U.S." Although station wagons are not very popular in the United States, this isn't an ordinary wagon and judging by the strong feedback this could turn out to be a mistake for Audi.

We remind you the super wagon comes with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine generating 560 HP (412 kW) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque. Power is sent to the quattro all-wheel drive system via an 8-speed tiptronic transmission that enables the RS6 Avant to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). Fitted with the optional Dynamic package, top speed is raised at 174 mph (280 km/h), while with the Dynamic plus package it can reach 190 mph (305 km/h).
