AUDI RS 6 SPECIFICATIONS
Disclaimers
+ These tires are designed for optimum performance and handling in warm climates. They are not suitable for cold, snowy, or icy weather conditions. If you drive under those
circumstances, you should equip your vehicle with all-season or winter tires, which offer better traction under those conditions. We suggest you use the recommended winter or allseason tire specified for your car or its equivalent. These performance tires also have a lower aspect ratio that aids performance and handling; however, in order to avoid tire, rim, or
vehicle damage, it is important that the inflation pressure is regularly checked and maintained at recommended levels. Please also remember in making your selection that, while these
tires deliver responsive handling, they may ride less comfortably and make more noise than other choices. When driving the RS 6, please be aware of extremely bumpy roads or
potholes. These types of road conditions can easily damage the low-profile tires on this vehicle. Avoid these road conditions whenever possible. Finally, these tires may wear more
quickly than other choices. For further information on all these topics, please consult the owner's manual, your local dealer or call 1-800-FOR-AUDI.
++ Airbags are supplemental restraints only and will not deploy under all accident circumstances. Always use safety belts and seat children only in the rear, using restraint systems
appropriate for their size and age.
+++ The Audi Navigation System depends upon signals from the world-wide Global Positioning Satellite network. The vehicle's electrical system, and existing wireless and satellite
technologies, must be available and operating properly for the system to function. The mapping does not have the same level of detail in all areas. Periodically the mapping is updated,
and new discs will be required in order to maintain the latest navigation information. These will be available for purchase from time to time at additional cost. Consult your dealer or call
1-800-FOR-AUDI for details.
++++ Ask your Audi dealer for details.
+++++ Coverage provided by AAA and its affiliated clubs in the U.S. Certain conditions apply.
Note: The RS 6 has a 450 hp biturbo V8 engine that is capable of accelerating the car from 0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds. This performance is unique to the RS 6. It is possible that you will not
have operated any vehicle with the acceleration and performance capabilities of the RS 6. Therefore, it is imperative that, when operating the RS 6, extreme caution is observed at all
times.
Note: As the driver, you must exercise good judgment and common sense when you operate this vehicle. Make sure that you drive within your own driving capabilities. Keep in mind
that changing road and weather conditions will affect the overall performance of the vehicle.
Note: The RS 6 is equipped with an Electronic Stabilization Program (ESP), Anti-lock Brakes (ABS), Brake Assist, and quattro all-wheel drive. Despite all of these safety/performance
enhancing features, you must be extremely careful when driving this vehicle. None of these vehicle systems can ensure vehicle safety at all times.
Audi of America, Inc. believes the specifications in this data sheet to be correct at the time of publishing. See your dealer for complete details.
