The 2013 Audi RS6 Avant might be the best super wagon on that market. With a whopping 552HP and an equally impressive 516 lb-ft of torque this Audi is no laughing matter. Mated to an 8-speed ZF automatic, this Audi also has the perfect transmission to work alongside this beast of an engine. The 2013 Audi RS6 Avant his 0-60 in only 3.9 seconds making this one of the fastest production Audi’s ever. Of course, the brilliance of this power and speed comes from the twin turbo 4.0L V8 that is starting to become the staple of Audi’s high end performance cars. This is the same engine that powers the Audi S6 and S7, but of course instead of 420HP you get an extra 132P in this setup. Considering those vehicles hit 0-60 in about 4 seconds, that 3.9 second number here is looking very conservative.

The 2014 Audi RS7 continues the trend of earth shattering performance luxury cars. The Audi A7 which was made to compete with the first “four-door coupe” the Mercedes CLS and has been a smashing success for Audi. It was then followed up with the high performing Audi S7, which was praised for its power delivery despite only having 420HP, the S7 feels like it has over 500HP thanks to its twin turbo engine. Now, an update of that same twin turbo engine is what’s powering the 2014 Audi RS7, except this time with an estimated 553HP and 516 lb-ft of torque.
Being the RS version, this car comes with many of the RS necessities. First, the standard wheel size for the Audi RS7 will be 20” followed by a 21” option. The vehicle also features extensive use of carbon-fiber to reduce weight, as well as an all blacked out honeycomb More >
The Audi Q3 has been out in Europe for over a year now, and here is its new high-performance variant: the all-new 2014 Audi RS Q3 with 310HP and 309ft lbs. torque, powered by a 2.5L inline-5 Turbocharged engine. Good for 0-60 in 5.5 seconds and is mated to a 7 speed S-Tronic transmission. The Audi RS Q3 is a stunner both on the inside and the outside. Competition for this vehicle includes BMW’s X1, an all-new upcoming small Mercedes crossover, known as the GLA and a small new Volvo crossover known as the XC40.
The one question that must be asked is this: is this enough horsepower for a vehicle with the “RS” badge? The BMW X1 already tops out at 300HP with its turbocharged N55 engine and that is not even an “M” version of the X1, this could put the RS Q3 at a More >
