YouTube channel CarsEvolution has posted a video covering the 17 years of existence of the Audi RS6 executive car line.

The performance vehicle range, which consists of sedan/saloon and estate/wagon models, debuted in 2002 with the release of the C5 RS6. The luxury wagon came equipped with a 4.2-liter, twin-turbo V8 engine rated at 450 hp (336 kW). Two years later, a special edition called the RS6 Plus followed it its tracks, boasting a 30hp / 23kW boost over the predecessor.

The second generation, called the C6, shipped with a 5.0-liter Lamborghini V10 engine good for 580 hp (433 kW), becoming Audi’s single strongest production car on the market. The ten-cylinder mill didn’t catch on, though, and the third iteration of the model reverted to using dual-turbo’d V8s.

R6S Performance came out in 2016 packing 605 horses (451 kW) under the hood. Nogaro Edition followed two years later with 705 hp (526 kW) at the crank and only 150 units released.

The fourth-gen Audi RS6 Avant, which is featured in our gallery and the video, debuted not long ago – in August 2019. The series switched to a mild-hybrid powertrain with 600 hp (447 kW). In its latest implementation, it sprints 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in impressive 3.6 seconds and may ultimately hit 305 km/h (189.5 mph) given the right conditions.
