São Paulo, Brazil – Audi do Brasil announces the launch in the country of the new Audi RS 6 Avant Performance, which gained a new look, more equipment and dynamic adjustments that reduced its total weight and made its performance even more sporty. The arrival of the renewed “pure-blood” stationwagon is part of the series of launches that the brand of the four rings will carry out throughout this year in celebration of its 30th anniversary in the Brazilian market. The model is available in the manufacturer’s network of dealerships in the country, with an extended warranty of three years and suggested price from R$ 1,213,990.00 in the direct sale modality.

“We got what seemed impossible: to make the legendary RS 6 Avant even more sporty and fun behind the wheel. We are proud to perpetuate our DNA of competition tracks throughout our vehicle portfolio, which offers options for all tastes and styles – such as stationwagon lovers, a segment that, although almost exclusive in the market, offers a spectacular combination of comfort, versatility, performance and driving dynamics,” describes Gerold Pillekamp, Head of Marketing and Communication at Audi do Brasil.

Unique and unprecedented performance

The established 4.0-liter TFSI V8 biturbo thruster has been cut to offer an even more thought-provoking performance. For this, it received larger turbo-compressors, increased maximum pressure – which rose to 2.6 bar, against 2.4 bar of the previous one – and a fine adjustment of engine control and transmission software for even faster responses of the mechanical assembly.

The power rose from 600 to 630 hp, between 6,000 and 6,250 rpm, and the torque from 800 to 850 Nm, from 2,050 to 4,500 rpm. Such power of the thruster flows through the eight-speed tiptronic transmission to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system, which allows the driver to calmly overcome rugged terrain and choose between the driving modes of the Audi drive select – Comfort, Efficiency and Auto, Dynamic, in addition to the two customizable modes RS1 and RS2.

This set allows the supersport to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in only 3.4 seconds – 0.2s faster than the previous model. The 0 to 200 km/h is done in 11.7 seconds. The maximum speed is 280 km/h. In addition, there is a new exhaust system to intensify the sound experience.

The new self-locking central differential is lighter and more compact, with the driving force directed in the ratio of 40:60 to the front and rear axles. If necessary, more torque is automatically directed to the shaft with better traction. Up to 70% can flow to the front wheels and up to 85% to the rear wheels.

Finally, the electrical assistance technology, consisting of a lithium-ion battery and a belt alternator (BAS) in a 48-volt primary electrical system, combines performance, efficiency and reduction in the level of pollutant emission. Through it, the model can move at speeds between 55 and 160 km/h with the engine turned off and then the BAS restarts the thruster quickly and comfortably. During the deceleration, the BAS can recover up to 12 kW of energy. The start-stop system starts working at 22 km/h.

The model also offers dynamic rear axle technology, which makes it possible to rotate the rear wheels up to five degrees. At low speed, they turned in the opposite direction to the front wheels, reducing the turning diameter. At high speed, they turn in the same direction as the front axle, reinforcing stability during lane changes.

Iconic and timeless design

Externally, the RS 6 Avant performance boasts the iconic – and increasingly exclusive – stationwagon body, which demonstrates in its aggressive lines and prominent creases the sporty vocation of the model. At the front, the wide air intakes and the standard Full LED Matrix headlights, with dynamic steering light and Audi Laser Light, separate the hexagonal singleframe grille into a hive structure.

Side skirts frame the southern portion of the bolide, creating a silhouette that instigates the eyes and accelerates the heart. At the rear, the LED flashlights that invade the trunk lid and the two oval exhaust outlets harmoniously complete the look.

The customer can choose, as a free customization option to replace the Aluminum (chrome) package, the new exterior package in matte gray, which applies this shade to body elements such as mirror covers, window frames and front air intakes, roof bars and side skirts.

The customer can choose four models of available wheels, including units with glossy black, matte gray and matte black finish.

Internally, the model offers high doses of refinement, comfort, sportiness and sophistication. The digital environment embraces the driver with touch screens integrated into the instrument panel and center console. The 10.1-inch top screen offers the MMI system with numerous information and options for customization of the vehicle, sound and entertainment system, and interface with smartphones through Android and iOS systems.

The 8.6-inch lower display, in turn, is carved on the center console and allows access to air conditioning, comfort and text input controls. A confirmation click is felt and heard when a function is selected by touch.

In front of the driver appears the Audi Virtual Cockpit with RS layout and new colored bars. The panel displays numerous data about the vehicle, from tire temperature and pressure, torque, power and engine oil temperature, to laps times, acceleration measurements and “G” forces. In manual mode, an indicator light signals to the driver the ideal time to change gears. The head-up display allows the driver to view the main information without diverting his eyes from the path.

The new RS 6 Avant performance has an exquisite internal finish and thought out in the smallest details, combining noble materials such as Alcântara, leather and carbon fiber. The leather seats with red stitching and the acronym RS on the backrest have generous side flaps that give firmness to the occupants even in the most winding turns.

Among the standard items are offered four-zone automatic air conditioning, customizable light package with 30 color options, multifunctional steering wheel with electric regulation and heating, adaptive cruise control with lane exit warning, park assist, Audi Phone Box Light (which charges the cell phone by induction) and Bang & Olufsen sound system.

In addition, the model also has quattro sports differential, dynamic rear axle, RS plus suspension with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) with adaptive and sports air, brake calipers in red color, panoramic sunroof and Full LED Matrix HD headlights with laser lights, dynamic steering light and 360º camera.

Finally, a family car

The sporting performance coexists with the familiar fitness of the vehicle, which is revealed in the excellent space for the occupant and the generous trunk – there are 565 liters of capacity, size enough for the bags during trips. Regarding the dimensions, the model is 4,995 mm long, 2,110 mm wide, 1,487 mm high and 2,930 mm in inter-axis distance. The capacity of the fuel tank is 73 liters.

Among the body color options, there are the shades of Nardo Gray (Solid); Ascari Blue, Glacier White, Florlo Silver, Grenadine Red, Myth Black (Metallic); Daytona Gray (Pearlized); and Sebring Black (Crystal Effect). The customer can also choose colors of the Audi Exclusive and Audi Exclusive Matte lines, for the additional values of R$ 57,000.00 and R$ 85,000.00, respectively.

Special sales campaign

In celebration of Audi’s 30th anniversary in Brazil, the four-ring brand announces a special sales campaign in its vehicle line. The special conditions consist of a bonus of R$ 30,000 overvaluation in the semi-new Audi used for the purchase of a zero kilometer vehicle from the manufacturer. In addition, the manufacturer offers zero rate (60% entry in 24 times without interest). For more information, consult the brand’s dealership network in the country.

Audi do Brasil

Audi celebrates 30 years in Brazil in 2024, a trajectory full of challenges, overcoming and achievements. The first appearance in the country took place in 1992, at the São Paulo Motor Show, with the Audi 100 sedan. The following year, the eternal idol Ayrton Senna became the official representative of the brand on national soil, with Senna Import. In 1994, the automaker’s coveted vehicles began to be officially marketed here and soon won the streets of the country, with unprecedented technologies and unprecedented driving dynamics.

Audi do Brasil is also one of the pioneers to encourage electromobility and has already invested R$ 87 million in the infrastructure of electric chargers throughout the country, in addition to offering charging infrastructure in more than 40 concessionaires in the national territory. Currently, Audi has consolidated itself as one of the most desired brands in Brazil, being present with its administrative headquarters in São Paulo (SP), logistics terminal, in Vinhedo, and the vehicle factory in São José dos Pinhais, in the metropolitan region of Curitiba (PR).
