Audi RS6 Sedan Unleashed Ahead of Paris Debut

Hot on the heels of the facelifted A6 comes its more powerful sibling: the Audi RS6 Sedan. It follows the Avant variant which was first shown to the public at the Frankfurt Motor Show last year.

Hot on the heels of the facelifted A6 comes its more powerful sibling: the Audi RS6 Sedan. It follows the Avant variant which was first shown to the public at the Frankfurt Motor Show last year.

The same 5.0-liter Twin-Turbo V10 engine from the Avant makes it to the sedan variant producing 580 hp (426 kW) and 650 Nm (480 lb-ft) of torque, it is mated to a six-speed tiptronic automatic transmission system and power is passed to all four wheels via Audi's permanent all-wheel drive system.

Thanks to its power-to-weight ratio of just 3.4kg per HP, it enables the RS6 to boast supercar performance. The Sedan sprints from 0-100km/h in just 4.5 seconds, shading an extra 0.1 seconds off the Avant's time, top speed is electronically limited at 250km/h (155mph) although consumers have an option to raise this to 280 km/h (174 mph).

The interior and exterior design has been left largely unchanged from the Avant but we can see the sedan takes its rear end inspriation from the all-new Audi A4.

The RS6 Sedan will hit showrooms in October – shortly after its worldwide debut at the Paris Motor Show and it will carry a sticker price of €105,550.
