Beginning with the design, the changes over the previous generation are small – however that's no bad thing! Across the front, back and sides, what was formerly chrome trim has now changed to Matt grey, and the Audi badge at the front has now been blackened out. The cars and truck likewise features 22-inch alloys as requirement. But otherwise, that's all that's changed! Nevertheless, ought to you pick to go for the carbon pack, then the matt grey trim can be swapped to carbon instead.

Step inside and it's a comparable story to the outside style. You'll now find alcantara on the guiding wheel, as well as blue stitching across the seats and seatbelts. You'll likewise discover some a little updated dials and some additional tech, such as surround view camera, but otherwise the is the same as the previous generation.

Nevertheless, one area that has actually experienced quite a big modification is the vehicle's efficiency! Although it includes the very same 4-litre twin-turbo V8 as in the past, it's had larger turbos fitted to it. As a result, horsepower and torque have actually been increased by 30hp & 50Nm respectively, meaning the automobile now produced 630hp and 850Nm!

But obviously, all these modifications don't come low-cost. The Audi Performance starts at ₤ 20,000 more than the previous edition, meaning you'll be paying from ₤ 113,000 to choose one up! So is it worth it? You'll require to stick to Mat and see for yourself!

    I don’t know why but I love how the suspension is working under the weight of the chassis in turns

    I had an early V8 RS6, that used to average 11or 12 mpg but was about 200bhp less, so I guess they have evolved!!

      Evolved to do 5miles to the gallon when you have a lead weight on your right foot.

      how much did you pay for the maintenance service? What I heard is that exchanging the breaks is very costly.,..

      ​@Alfa 156 GTAThat’s just ICE cars – more HP needs more fuel. Even hybrid ones like the “C63”.

    I think Audi has the best estate cars.
    They’re so fast and you have so much space.
    Also the design is flawless.
    Great job Audi.

      The perpetual understeer is definitely a design flaw lol

    If this car wasn’t so damn heavy, it would run 10s in the 1/4. Still too heavy, let’s hope the hardcore RS6 GT will take this even further.

      I agree. However, it really is made to be a comfortable estate car. To your point, offer a GT version as you said it you’re right, it would run in the 10’s. Especially with the terrific launch this car makes!

    Curiously, I did click on the banner for the braking-results of the Ferrari 296 GTB for comparison.

    Both cars stopped from 60-0 mph in 31 meters. However, from 100-0 mph it took the Ferrari 10 (TEN!) meters MORE than the Audi to stop (94 vs. 84 meters)? Though it weighs about 700 kg/1500 lbs less, and these were ‘just’ the standard brakes for the Audi? How can this be???

    I like the Audi, practical, oh lost to the Ferrari by 1 second in the quarter mile but does 30 more things! I don’t care for the rear styling, not sure what could change? That’s your green Audi Matt , Jaguar green 🐆

    I have a 2023 RS6. It is a fun car but my E63S Estate was more exiting to drive. The Audi is far more attractive and very comfortable as a daily driver. Rear wheel steering on the Performance model is welcome, but I would rather have a steering rack that provides some feedback. More exhaust is nice, but at the expense of less insulation. The 2024 colors are a bit boring. I also had a Panamera Turbo S Sport Turismo and that car was next level, but also considerably larger. I’d still pick the Audi but it is not the best super wagon on the market.

    make more videos of this amazing car so i can convince my dad to buy the rs6 and that’s it’s better than a rs3😅

    Please do a comparison video of several cars, all within a realistic 25k-35k budget. But choose cars that are specified to one thing, such as it’s speed (acceleration and top speed) (Golf R or A45), another that focussed on it tech (Tesla), another that focuses on its looks and style (Mustang), another that’s comfy to drive (BMW 4 series) etc. at the end of the video you could decide which is the best for value and what you would get for that price? It’s just an idea I’ve come up with because this is the situation I’m in at the moment and have no idea what to get aha
