In terms of power, the Audi RS 6 Avant GT will continue to be equipped with a 4.0T V8 twin-turbocharged engine and an eight-speed Tiptronic transmission. The engine has a maximum power of 463 kW and a maximum torque of 850 Nm, which is 22 kW and 50 Nm more than the standard RS6 Avant. The transmission has been optimized to reduce shift times, allowing for acceleration from 0-100 km/h in just 3.3 seconds, 0.3 seconds faster than the standard RS6 Avant. It can reach 200 km/h in 11.5 seconds, 1.5 seconds faster than the RS 6 Avant*. Its top speed is 305 km/h. In terms of braking performance, the Audi RS 6 Avant GT is equipped with a ceramic braking system and high-performance German brand tires with a size of 285/30 R22, reducing the braking distance from 100 to 0 km/h by 2 meters.

In terms of the four-wheel drive system, the Audi RS 6 Avant GT continues to be equipped with the quattro all-wheel drive system and uses the latest version of the locking center differential. The engine power can be distributed to the front and rear axles in a ratio of 40:60. If slippage occurs, a larger driving torque will automatically be applied to the axle with better traction – up to 70% of the torque can flow to the front axle, and up to 85% of the torque can flow to the rear axle. To further differentiate the Audi RS 6 Avant GT from other RS models, the quattro sport differential located on the rear axle has been specially tuned. The new parameters focus on improving agility and, in “dynamic” driving mode, bias power distribution towards the rear axle. Users will benefit from sporty, neutral, and high-precision handling. The Audi RS 6 Avant GT is the first Audi model to come standard with an adjustable coil spring suspension, and the only model with this feature. Compared to the base Audi RS 6 Avant, this suspension system can lower the body height by 10 millimeters, achieving a harmonious balance between sportiness and comfort. Higher spring stiffness, three-way adjustable shock absorbers, and a higher rigidity stabilizer bar effectively reduce body roll and significantly enhance driving pleasure. For customer convenience in personalizing adjustments, the vehicle is also equipped with necessary tools and corresponding instructions. Customers can also order the RS sport suspension plus with dynamic driving control system, or the RS adaptive air suspension.
