Audi recently released the long awaited third generation of its RS6 Avant overseas. Though Audi’s ultimate station wagon is powered by the most powerful variation of Volkswagen Group’s twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8, power output has dropped to 560 hp but torque has risen from 479 lb-ft to 516.
The RS6’s engine is force-fed by two twin-scroll turbochargers, placed in the valley of the two cylinder banks directly along the exhaust headers. The new V-8 is such a capable and powerful engine that it seems the V-10 won’t be missed by many.
