The all new Audi RS 6 Avant will propel you from 0-62mph in just 3.9s and push on to 189mph. A 4.0L, V8 bi-turbo engine kicks out an astonishing 560bhp. Quite the beast.

Speaking of beasts, the RS 6 Avant isn’t one – well it is but the corporate cruiser and or family car will not only provide you with an 8-speed tiptronic, quattro masterpiece of a drive with adaptive air suspension and Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) but also, a golf club pleasing 1,680 litres-worth of luggage space. Not to mention the inconspicuous attire, the V8 is clothed in – a ‘comfort mode’ run to the shops will (almost) go unnoticed by local residents and the 28.8mpg economy makes this daily use possible.

The genius of the Audi RS 6 Avant is that it looks superb, and can be driven carefully and comfortably on a daily basis but every now and again – you may wish for and it will deliver rocket-like performance. Astonishing.
