Watch the new Audi RS6 Avant belch a sweet twin-turbo V8 noise!


And it’s almost as quick as the new Ferrari Roma, with a 0 to 100 km/h time of 3.6 seconds; the Roma does it in 3.4 seconds.

Baffling isn’t it? It’s simply staggering to witness how far we’ve come with automotive production. Just over 10 years ago, shock waves would’ve been sent around the globe if a sports car could do the same run in under four seconds.

These days, even the wagons are doing it and for the latest 2020 Audi RS6 Avant – a Super Wagon of sorts – it’s merely a walk in the park.

Here’s a list of supercars and super saloons introduced in the past 12 months or so in Malaysia that the RS6 can antagonise, pounce on and potentially make mince meat out of:

BMW M5 – 3.4 seconds
Mercedes-AMG E63 S 4MATIC+ – 3.4 seconds
Mercedes-AMG GT C – 3.7 seconds
Mercedes-AMG GT R – 3.6 seconds
Aston Martin DBS Superleggera – 3.4 seconds
BMW M850i xDrive – 3.7 seconds

What else did we miss?

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
