Audi RS6 details:

The motor of the new Audi RS6 is a innovative work of art. The 4991, cc V10 bundles a number of Audi's race-winning technologies - FSI direct fuel injection, dry-sump lubrication and two turbochargers. With up to 1. 6 bar of boost pressure, these offer smooth, comprehensive thrust and an incomparable performance band: The peak torque of 650 Nm (479. 42 lb-ft) is available from 1500, to 6250, rpm and thus nearly over the entire rev range. Peak performance of 426 Kw (580 hp) is generated between 6250, rpm and the maximum figure of 6700, rpm.

With a power-to-weight ratio of 3. 4 kilograms per hp, the Audi RS6 performs like a supercar. It catapults to 100 km/h (62. 14 mph) in 4. 5 seconds on its way to an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h (155. 34 mph), which can be optionally raised to 280 km/h (173. 98 mph). The V10 responds immediately and spontaneously to the throttle, and is very smooth while accelerating with a comprehensive roar.

The engine's performance flows via the six-speed tiptronic, one of a new, dynamic generation of Audi automatic transmissions. Its reaction time has been reduced to one tenth of a second, shift time has been halved compared to units used in other models and transmission ratios are short. The driver can also manually change gears either using the shift lever or the paddles on the helm. The tiptronic transmission transfers the performance to an extremely sporty, rear-weighted quattro drive train.
