    By now, you're probably all aware of the fact that the Audi RS6 is the perfect car if you want to carry a wardrobe and still be able to outrun some supercars. The current generation was all-new in 2013, so it's not surprising that the mid-life facelift for the whole A6 family doesn't affect it very much.

    But the 2015 model which will begin being available in a few months does come with a few subtle changes. Like the M5 facelift, which is one of its big rivals, changes mainly target the RS6's headlights. A new LED design uses two straight lines that cut across the middle of the headlight unit and split up at the end. The same design is used for the all-new taillights as well, which benefit from flowing indicator graphics as well. Buyers will also be offered the award-winning Matrix adaptive system borrowed from the A8, but only as an optional extra.

    As you can see from the little photo collage we put together, Audi has not changed the bumper design or any of the bodywork for that matter. Even the wheels (21-inch optional) and the color (Misanorot Perleffekt, a €950 option) are the same.


    The engine powering this all-mighty estate also remains the same, a 4.0 TFSI rated at 560 PS. Couple only to an eight-speed auto and quattro all-wheel drive, this propels the car from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 305 km/h (189.5 mph).

    The fastest model in the range is also the thirstiest. Average fuel consumption for the European-spec model is 9.6 liters per 100 kilometers (24.5 US mpg). But considering the RS6 weighs just over 2 tons and has permanent all-wheel drive, these aren't bad numbers at all. In fact, they represent slight improvements over the 2013 model, which achieved 9.8 l/100km.

    Audi has announced the new RS6 will be priced from €108,900 in Germany. While that represents a slight €50 increase, this is still good value. We expect the standard Xenon Plus headlights to be replaced by the LED system, meaning you actually get €1,800 of free kit.

        Do they have a Plus 600PS version as well or was that a fake?

          I like the RS6 Avant, it is my favorite Audi UBER Wagon. Actually I would take this over the RS7 anyday, that front with bulging wheelarches and huge gills looks fantastic.

              That's more than I expected, the new RS6 costs 'only' 124k in Holland (M5 is from 135k)

              BTW, too bad they didn't address the very bad looking fake exhaust tips on this car with the facelift.

                    The red one looks fantastic, love the interior with those pleated leather seats and carbon fibre trim
