Click above for a high-res gallery of the Audi RS6 sedan.

All right. Now we're torn. RS6 Avant or RS6 sedan? Both are packing the same twin-turbocharged, direct-injected 5.0-liter V10 putting out 580 hp and 479 lb.-ft. of torque. Both send power to all four wheels through a six-speed tiptronic tranny and both can be equipped with absolutely massive 420mm (front) and 356mm (rear) ceramic brakes. While it's hard to deny the practicality of the wagon, we think the sedan comes across as more elegant – in a brutally Teutonic way. The voting will commence in the comments and check the gallery below for a plenty of high-res images from the show floor.

      It's a great looking, super-powerful car... but i think i like how the wagon is more of a sleeper - who would put that kind of engine into a wagon!??!

      I've test drove an RS4 and it was amazing, i can only imagine what one of these would be like - love the audis.

      I've got it the avant for the wife in blue and the sedan for me in black!

      Sweet! Looks good and I am digging the cut lines above the wheel wells.

      I don't really care that it looks bland because it goes like stink and thankfully being turbocharged can be modded pretty easily. Give me a wagon in that blue and I'll be happy, for awhile.

      Avant. Avant. Avant.

      There's something about doing what the RS cars can do in a wagon form that just makes it that much more amazing.

      If a Cadillac CTS-V can beat a Benz S65 with 600hp. im sure it will have no problem beating a Audi RS6... im not worried about the AWD. cause the CTS-V has better suspension... and will blow that AWD out of the water...

        The Audi RS6 Avant has already done 0-100kp/h in 4.2 seconds and quarter mile in 12.4
        The Sedan will be even faster.

      I vote for the avant, understate to the max! I may like to remove the "RS6" badge at the rear even. The rear lights look batter on the wagon.

        avant all the way

      Wow, that just looks good, has to be a blast to drive, and a tighter body than the wagon must fly thru the mountain roads.
      I wonder if it is faster than the BMW M5 or Benz s65?
      • 7 Years Ago
      Beautiful car!! But my heart still goes to the Avant!

      To me, it doesnt really matter if the CTS-V or any other sedan/wagon being faster than the RS6. Because the RS6 is the totally package when it comes down to styling, interior and performance.
