    It is an unfortunate and uncomfortable fact that the E63 AMG Wagon is faster than the RS6 Avant in a straight line. It costs more and it makes more power, so it’s hardly surprising but there is a way to tilt the odds in your favor. Throttle House has taken the two cars to the drag strip and in...

    We all know at this point that the RS6 is a mighty beast of a car. But the S6 is no slouch. So how much more are you getting for your money? Quite a bit, actually. In this “dragparison,” a term that I refuse to ever use again, from Australia’s CarExpert, the RS6 Avant goes up against the S6...

    There are still a few tuning houses in Europe that will take some of the most expensive cars on the market and turn the dial up to 11. Mansory’s latest effort, though, the RS6 Avant, might actually only turn it up to ten. The first step is, of course, pumping up the power. Instead of the stock...

    Electric cars accelerate very quickly. This is a fact so plain that it’s almost boring these days. That’s why, even though I’m rooting for EVs like the e-tron, it’s fun to see that dominance taken on by something like the RS6 Avant. That said, RS6 Avant isn’t so much a monster-killer as it is a...

    A lot. In short. But think of all the joy it would bring me. Sadly, the US configurator hasn’t gone live yet, so the exact price of your particular RS6 might vary, but this one is just shy of 100,000 GBP. Given the price, the options list isn’t especially extensive, but there’s enough to dig...

    Videos on the internet usually start with big, loud, excited assertions of extraordinariness to get the audience’s attention and make sure they don’t turn away to one of the several thousand other forms of entertainment available to them. This one starts with speechlessness. The reason is that...

    Along with sharing all the important data about the cars, this video shares the engine sound. So it's pretty much the perfect video. YouTube has succeeded. It can be shut down now. On top of covering every generation of RS6 Avant, the video also, helpfully, covers some of the major...

    Reaction times are a wonderful thing, especially at the drag strip. Case in point, this Golf R that eats a Ferrari 458 Italia for lunch. It's hard to say just what's happening under this Golf R's hood but whoever's behind the wheel ( our money's on that 75-year-old Brit from a few weeks ago )...
