The new 2018 Audi RS6, the V10 TFSI is controlled by an advanced Motronic engine management system with the designation MED 9.1.2. This works with ten single-core ignition coils and two control units operating according to the masterslave concept. The palette of finishes for the Audi RS6 performance models includes solid, metallic, pearl effect, crystal effect and matt shades. The standard colors are Daytona gray, floret silver, glacier white, Misano red, mythos black, Nardo gray, panther black, prism silver and Sepang blue. Supplementing the choice of colors are the custom finishes and matt effect paint finishes from Audi exclusive.
2018 Audi RS 6 Design
The sportily elegant interior of the Audi RS6 performance comes standard with sport seats with pronounced side bolsters and integrated head restraints. Audi offers the seats in the color combination black and blue with the optional RS performance design package. This includes new seat upholstery in an Alcantara/leather combination with a honeycomb pattern and matching contrasting stitching on the armrests, control elements and floor mats.
Standard fit is an eight-inch sat nav screen with crisp graphics and a touchpad, so you can write post codes in using your finger as a pencil, or do the same with the more conventional scroll dial. Both are easier to operate on the move than the touchscreens fitted to other cars.
2018 Audi RS6 Engine
The 2018 Audi RS6 performance models are equipped with the most powerful version of the free-revving V8 biturbo power unit with a displacement of 3,993 cc. Power output has been increased by 33 kW (45 hp) to 445 kW (605 hp), which is available between 6,100 and 6,800 rpm. The maximum rpm has thus also been increased by 200 revs.
Overboost is activated automatically under full load if the engine/transmission setting is set to "dynamic" mode. The boost pressure indicator in the RS menu turns red when overboost is active. The high-tech character of the 4.0 TFSI is manifested in numerous details, such as the twin-scroll turbochargers that provide for the early and rapid development of torque, the innovative thermal management and the layout of the cylinder heads.
