What does S6 and RS6 Provide
If you are a Sporty, Audi A6 provides you with two solutions, S6 and RS6. The S6 is a sedan that packs a twin-turbocharged V-6, making 444 hp. The chassis is re-worked for better handling, and the rear bumper features Audi’s trademark quad exhaust tips. The RS6 comes with a 590-hp twin-turbo V-8, available hydraulic shock absorbers, and massive carbon-ceramic brakes for supercar-rivaling performance. But it can’t be had as a sedan. The RS6 is only available as an Avant, Audi’s term for a station wagon. The point is, the RS6 hauls a lot more than cargo.
