Audi is getting ready to launch what will probably be its strongest hi-performance model, namely the RS 6. This snippet of a teaser pic shows what is likely to be the RS 6 Avant (station wagon), which will be unveiled in a few weeks’ time. While there is no confirmation thereof yet, we believe it will become available to Mzansi buyers in about a year or so.

What we know so far about the RS 6 is that it will carry a 4.0-litre twin turbo V8 engine that will, in one model, be mated to some hybrid system. Power in the standard model will reach at least 450kW, while the hybrid will probably tip into the 500kW mark. Of course quattro all-wheel-drive is part of the package, and should take the car from 0 – 100km/h in about 3.2 seconds or so.
