    • Official - The new 591 hp 2020 Audi C8 RS6 wagon is coming to the USA

      Not only is it great to see Audi unveil the new RS6 Avant but the big news is that the USA will not be omitted with the RS6 wagon for the first time ever. That is massive, massive news and shows Audi really is serious about bringing their performance wagons over.


      Ok, so what does the new RS6 have to offer? How about a 591 horsepower version of the new Porsche derived 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 architecture? It is sent to all four wheels through an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

      There is a mild 48-volt hybrid assist system. This is used to assist the start/stop system. There is also cylinder deactivation. This is all for efficiency.

      AudiBoost is interested in performance and what the new generation will bring over the C7 design. Frankly, performance should be an incremental upgrade considering under the skin the C8 is pretty similar.

      The new design is stunning though. The best looking wagon on the market? Yep, probably.

      What does it weigh? What does it cost? Both of those figures will be hefty.

      Let's just be happy it can be ordered in the USA.

        The front end (bumper in particular) might be a touch too much for my liking, but I'll taken an RS Avant stateside any day. What do we know about the assist system? Does the 591hp rating include that?

        I absolutely love how aggressive it looks.

        It will be heavy and expensive but I would choose this over any SUV on the market.

        I'd looooooooooooooooove one of these. I'm glad its got some hybrid elements to it, and it probably gets better mileage than my current S8
