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 monster. A big wagon with a big engine and big numbers. And it absolutely walks all over the upstart Tesla.

It is, though, a sign of where we are when a high power V8 can surprise us by beating an EV, but maybe that’s not a bad place to be.

At any rate, the video is just one more affirmation that the RS6 Avant is a joy to behold and a joy to experience.
