Good news for those of you living in Australia as the Audi RS6 Avant has been confirmed for a November launch, as opposed to United States where the Ingolstadt-based automaker won’t sell this model. Andrew Doyle who is Audi's Australia chief also said the RS5 Cabriolet will go on sale this July, together with the RS4 Avant, TT RS Plus and the range-topping R8.

To refresh your memory, the 2014 Audi RS6 Avant makes use of a V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine rated at 560 HP (412 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque. All those ponies are sent to the proprietary quattro all-wheel drive system through an eight-speed tiptronic gearbox.

The super wagon reaches 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.9 seconds and a limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). Opt for the Dynamic package and speed limit is increased to 174 mph (280 km/h). With the Dynamic Plus package the 2014 RS6 Avant can do 190 mph (305 km/h).
