I like how this gen RS6 was only offered as an Avant yet it was still quite a bit faster than the previous RS6 sedan despite less power. Most people only talk about the RS6 Performance but this is surely fast enough to get around in every life situation.

I think this could be the best looking estate car ever, Its got a tough call when comparing it to the older CTS-V and E63-T, But i think this might just win for me. I still think 100k is a bit steep considering its a "Wagon" but i can understand though, Although it would sell alot better if it were a full saloon. Man i remember the last RS4, 2007 or so, That thing was every where, And stayed there for years, This new RS4 is damn near forgotten.

@FastestLaps
Yes, you should add the 'SRT' brand, just like any other missing brand, here - https://fastestlaps.com/makes . Then I guess everything will be OK. And improve all the data, please. :)


User avatar

Shaggy  10y ago

@ FastestLaps: That's right, SRT is Chrysler Group LLC's performance division, Ram is their truck division.


User avatar

CoolShirtGuy  10y ago

@FL
Yep, SRT is its own entity within Chrysler.


User avatar

Apathy  10y ago

Fastestlaps,

Yes. Srt is now separate like RAM.


User avatar

t1  10y ago

Exactly, FL. SRT is a separate brand now.

Fangio Man  10y ago

@FastestLaps
I do not know, but they were added as SRT's.


User avatar

FastestLaps  10y ago

SRT is now a separate nameplate like RAM?


User avatar

t1  10y ago

FL, all the SRT Vipers. I can not add any performance / track data for SRT Viper GTS and SRT Viper TA. Fix that please.


User avatar

Fangio Man  10y ago

@FastestLaps
I think the SRT should be added to the list of featured makes that we can add laptimes for them.


User avatar

FastestLaps  10y ago

Which page exactly?


User avatar

t1  10y ago

When will you fix the SRT page, FastestLaps?


User avatar

FastestLaps  10y ago

There is considerable back-log for performance data and laptimes. But nothing is lost and this data will get published. Especially if you mention this in comments :)

I disagree with "!!!!" but this site needs a complete rework, with community moderation. And it will happen eventually.


User avatar

!!!!!  10y ago

because this site is dying


User avatar

benzsl  10y ago

Up to now we have plenty test data from Autobild, AMS and Autozeitung, etc.
Why still no information has been updated?


User avatar

anoni  10y ago

I know that 11.6 for the 1/4 but on the same test the car was measured to 200 and it was taking 12.1 sec.
this is the best result to 200 and the best result to 1/4 mile.

so to shave another 0.2 sec to 200(11.9 sec) it will be nice.

anyway, why the performance data is not updated ?
who is in charge with this ???


User avatar

fasdf  10y ago

Anoni, if the RS6 can hits 1/4 mile in 11.6 s and speed is 196 kph, sure it can.


User avatar

anoni  10y ago

I don't think that this car can go under 12.0 sec to 200 even with the best driver behind the wheel, best weather and best street legal tires, doesn't matter how many attempts.

E63
RS6

Rather tough choice, If it were the Non T/S-Model without 4wd, the E63 Hands down, but as is, I cant say know, too hard, They both pretty much look good as the other, Benz has a better looking interior and engine, RS better tranny.

Very tough choice.
