AUDI RS6 AVANT C8

Analysis

Last week, the ShifTech team was entrusted with a superb Audi RS6 Avant C8.

Our mission was to reprogram the 4.0 V8 TFSI engine, which originally produced 600hp and 800Nm of torque. After a first run on our test bench, we can confirm that the figures announced by the manufacturer are real: the vehicle was originally measured at 600hp and 864Nm of torque.

As a reminder, this Audi RS6 went on sale from September 2019, priced at €129,150 (excluding options). The cavalry passes to the ground with the help of quattro all-wheel drive and an eight-speed tiptronic automatic gearbox. This combination enables it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds, and to reach 305 km/h when the Dynamics Pack plus option is selected. What's more, with this vehicle, you need just 12 seconds to go from 0 to 200 km/h. In France, models are sold as standard with a top speed flange limited to 280 km/h.

While previous generations of the Audi RS6 have tended to keep a low profile, the 2020 model breaks the mould and adopts a more aggressive look. But that doesn't stop this 5-metre-long, 2.2-tonne sports estate from keeping up its good manners and giving you pleasure with 1.30g of lateral acceleration.

Opinion of the engine builder in charge of preparation:

Pleasantly surprised that an estate car weighing over 2 tonnes can be so well balanced. The engineers at Audi have found the right formula: a Quattro sport rear differential, rear-wheel steering, not to mention variable steering ratio, are the magic potion that makes this Audi as agile as it is stable, at least on dry roads.

As far as the engine is concerned, there's everything you need to enjoy the unrestrained power of a 4.0 V8. But like me, the customer felt that it wasn't enough and that it needed to be more demonstrative when it came to thrust. And now it has! After the Stage 1 ShifTech, this Audi RS6 Avant now develops 702hp and 983Nm of torque.
