The German based automaker Audi has released a new trailer with the 2014 RS6 Avant, where the model is being show in action.
After it was officially unveiled earlier this year and scheduled to make it into the European showrooms next summer, the new generation of the Audi RS6 Avant is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the German based automaker releasing a new promotional video with the model. The 2014 Audi RS6 Avant is featuring cylinder on-demand and start/stop fuel saving systems and it can burn 9.8 liters of fuel every 100 km (28.8 mpg UK / 24 mpg US), becoming 40 percent more fuel efficient than the outgoing version.
Power to the 2014 Audi RS6 Avant is being provided by a 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 engine, which is replacing the previous naturally aspirated 5.2 liter unit. The engine is producing a total output of 560 HP (412 kW) and 700 Nm of torque (516 lb-ft).

Top speed stands at 250 km/h (155 mph) or 280 km/h (174 mph) with the Dynamic Package. The Dynamic Plus Package is allowing the model to reach a top speed of 305 km/h (190 mph).
