In-game descriptionEdit

"A high-performance model by quattro GmbH that takes the S6 to the next level."

The Audi RS 6 is an ultra-high-performance model tuned by quattro[4] GmbH, now known as Audi Sport GmbH, Audi's subsidiary works-tuning company, and is based on the S6, a sportier model which is in turn based on the Audi A6 luxury sports sedan. While some automotive manufacturers dress their higher performance models to further differentiate them from the standard vehicle, Audi took a more subtle styling approach. There are no flashy aerodynamic parts on the RS6, which made its world debut at the 2002 Geneva Motor Show; the only hint of the overwhelming performance you get is from the 255/40R18 tires. The interior is also nearly identical to that found in the original A6, a black dashboard, Recaro leather sports seats, and an emblem on the steering wheel being the only identifying marks that this is the potent RS6.

Aesthetics aside, there is nothing subtle about the raucous engine, a twin-turbocharged 4.2-liter DOHC V8 equipped with Audi's special 5-valve technology. Its maximum power output is a mind boggling 444 BHP, with a maximum torque of 412.9 lb-ft.[5] The transmission is a 5-speed automatic with Tiptronic manual gear selection technology (no manual transmission was offered). Greatly aiding to the car's handling was an advanced dynamic ride control system. Developed by Yamaha in Japan, it was an updated and more refined version of the RIAS used in cars like the Toyota Supra. Four dampers are connected in an X shape, to secure a high level of grip. And while the Audi RS6 is a fairly heavy car at 1840 kg, it can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 4.9 seconds. A station wagon version called the RS6 Avant was also made available.
