The new RS 6 Avant Plus would be able to boast 613 hp from its V10 engine

The Audi RS 6 Avant may be at the forefront of the horsepower race with BMW and Mercedes, but so far none have been delivered yet. Market launch is expected to take place this summer and already rumors have popped up talking of a new RS 6 Avant Plus model.

The previous generation Audi RS 6 Avant also had a Plus version at the end of its production (April – October 2004) which provided customers with an additional 30 hp (480 hp instead of 450 hp) through a remapped ECU and additional radiators, 19 inch wheels instead of 18 inch and a sports suspensions lowering the car by another 10 mm. Only 999 units found their way to dealerships.

Dutch AutoTelegraaf now claims that, according to insiders, the current RS 6 Avant will also come in a Plus guise but not until the end of its life cycle, probably sometime in 2011. The current A6 model is about to receive a facelift and will not be replaced by an all new model until at least 2011, if not later. The new RS 6 Avant Plus would be able to boast 613 hp from its V10 engine (580 hp in the regular RS 6 Avant).
