EXPERIENCE WHAT PERFORMANCE FEELS LIKE

Let yourself be carried away by striking design, inspiring performance and a multitude of exclusive equipment highlights. With technologies that Audi Sport has successfully tested and deployed in motorsport. Make a statement for individual sportiness your own personal way. With the R/RS series models from Audi Sport.

NOTE

Unfortunately, all Audi Sport series models are currently sold out - for this reason, they are no longer configurable. However, some countries do have already produced vehicles available. Alternatively, you may consider a used vehicle. Simply contact your Audi partner in your country.

TECHNOLOGY AT A GLANCE

Quattro

Outstanding traction, increased driving dynamics and more driving safety. Or to put it briefly: Quattro. Hardly any other drive brings the engine's power to the road so confidently.

In a technical variant, the central component is the self-locking centre differential. In its basic design, this purely mechanical planetary gear distributes drive torques asymmetrically to favour driving dynamics. With a 40:60 ration between the front and rear axle. If necessary, up to 70 percent can be directed to the front wheels, or up to 85 percent to the rear wheels to counteract slip.

 

In a further technical variant, the permanent all-wheel drive is coupled with an electronically controlled and hydraulically operated multi-disc clutch for power distribution. Furthermore, the wheel-selective torque control counteracts unwanted wheel slip through targeted braking interventions on all wheels. This results in controllable and sporty handling combined with outstanding traction.

GEARBOX

Precise, lightning-fast and with virtually no interruption in traction - these are the distinguishing traits of all gears.

The 7-gear S tronic combines all advantages of a conventional manual gearbox with those of a modern automatic. The dual-clutch transmission, consisting of two sub-transmissions, switches by changing the power-transmitting clutch. The gear shifting process is precise, extremely quick and without almost any tractive effort interruption. 

 

The 8-stage Tiptronic is a fast and automatic torque converter with high efficiency. Thanks to the eight stages, speed jumps between the gears remain small, and the engine always runs close to its ideal load point. The lower gears are short for a sporty feel, while the higher gears have a long transmission ratio to reduce revs and consumption.

PERFORMANCE SUSPENSION

PERFORMANCE SUSPENSION

The RS sports suspension plus with dynamic ride control (DRC) is available as an option to enhance the sporty driving characteristics. Steel springs and shock absorbers with variable characteristic curves reduce pitch and roll movements around the transverse and longitudinal axis using hydraulics alone. The dampers, positioned diagonally opposite to each other, are connected to each other via oil lines and one central valve each. When the dampers are immersed in different ways, for example, when going round corners at high speeds, the valves act on the oil flow at the deflected wheel. They reinforce the support there, thereby reducing the lateral angle and increasing the driving dynamics.
Ceramic brakes

BRAKE SYSTEM

The standard high-performance brake systems are extremely powerful: The 6 or 8-piston fixed callipers on the front axle ensure a powerful grip. The axial perforation and cooling channels for internal ventilation increase the performance of brake pads - their material mix contributes to weight reduction.

The optional ceramic brake has been developed for tougher conditions. With brake disks made of carbon fibre reinforced ceramic - hard silicon carbide, embedded in the durable carbon fibre. Even under high thermal loads, they convince with good timing and dosage. 

AUDI DRIVE SELECT

AUDI DRIVE SELECT

Individual vehicle components can be managed via the Multi Media Interface (MMI) to adapt them to the current driving situation. With the Audi RS 6 performance, for example, engine characteristics, exhaust flap control, transmission mode, damper control and the steering torque of the electro-mechanical power steering can be set in four different modes: auto, comfort, dynamic and individual. Other optional systems can also be adapted - such as the characteristic curves of the shock absorbers of the RS sports suspension plus with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC).
