This is the new 572bhp Audi RS6 saloon, which will make its debut at the Paris motor show in October before going on sale in Britain just weeks later. Following hot on the heels of the RS6 Avant, the saloon uses the same 5.0-litre twin-turbo V10 engine to offer supercar-rivalling levels of performance.
Audi claims that it will blast from 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds and is limited to 155mph - although the limiter can be raised to 174mph as an option. Like the Avant, it uses a six-speed automatic gearbox with Tiptronic over-ride and wears 20-inch alloys. The RS6 saloon will be distinguished from the S6 by some subtle styling tweaks and will also get the latest version of Audi’s MMI in-car entertainment system as per the rest of the facelifted A6 range. Pricing details haven’t been finalised yet, but expect it to cost in the region of £75,000.
