Though the 2008 Audi RS6 Avant was officially unveiled last September and displayed for the first time in Frankfurt shortly thereafter, the automaker from Ingolstadt doesn't want us to forget about its fire-breathing wagon. Audi has released a batch of new high-res RS6 Avant images that are perfect for this generation's version of that iconic Countach poster on the wall: the desktop wallpaper. And in case you forgot what the RS6 Avant is all about, here is its resume in easily digestible chunks.
  • 580-horsepower/480 lb-ft twin-turbo V10 TFSI
  • 0-62 mph in 4.6 seconds, 0-124 mph in 14.9 seconds
  • Top speed of 155 mph (electronically governed)
  • quattro permanent four-wheel-drive
  • Unique bodywork, interior trim
  • Up to 58.6 cubic ft of cargo space
  • Optional ceramic composite brakes
  • 6-speed tiptronic
Those who grew up dreaming about one day owning that Countach on the wall can now embarrass Lamborghini's legendary exotic in a German station wagon. If that's not the best cure for a mid-life crisis, we don't know what is. Check out all the new pics, plus the original official photos and our live shots of the Audi RS6 AVant from the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show in the gallery below.
