I started driving about three years ago, just as the RS6 came to the U.S. I received an A6 2.8 for my first car, a loved the way the car drove. Recently, I have become obsessed with owning an RS6; so I purchased one. This car is amazing; it handles corners in the wet like no other family sedan, and it will lay waste to most Porsches and Ferraris. I hate putting the miles on my RS6, but it is so fun to drive, I have to take it out of the garage at least once a week. It truly is a beast of a car.
I've owned and loved '67 Austin Cooper S, '95 Mercedes C36 AMG, '01 Audi S6, and '03 Audi S8, but this RS6 Is at the top of the heap! The seats are the most comfortable I've had in any Audi. The 3 spoke steering wheel is perfect. The acceleration is indescribeable - I'm thinking maybe space shuttle! If you hit the brakes hard, you get a straight stop that feels like you hit the emergency catch net on an aircraft carrier! The Quattro does it's job flawlessly and undetectably. Despite the incredible levels of performance, this car is docile enough that my 76 year old mother could drive it.
A perfect compromise for my family.
Outrageously fun to drive. Enough
room in the back for a car seat. I
keep looking for excuses to go out an
drive the car. Pick-up is great from
0-60. Pick-up when passing (50 - 90)
is simply unbelievable. If you get
one, you're going to want to live in
it (and you could probably buy a small
apartment in the mid-west for the same
price, so maybe you should). If price
is no object and you want a car that
is both fun and practical, this is it.
Panache, practicality (roomy back seat)
and phantastically phast -- what more
could one want? Better MPG, maybe, but
comparable cars are just as bad (e.g.
E55 AMG) -- and they don't have or
offer All Wheel Drive. I've never
driven this much in one year (24K mi),
which says a lot. Spent time in shop
after 10K mi but turns out that was due
to poor communication at Audi rather
than parts availability, which was
blamed at the time. Also have 2000
Audi S4 & need to sell one of them.
Love the S4 too; more nimble and, with
a chip, almost as fast. But even tho
selling the RS6 would bring $40+K more,
I have no such plans. RS6 pleases eyes,
ears, even nose!
FROM THE MOMENT I FIRST CRANKED THE
ENGINE, I KNEW I HAD JUST PURCHASED THE
BEST SPORTS SEDAN I HAVE EVER OWNED.
WHEN YOU HEAR THE EXHAUST, YOU KNOW AND
CAN FEEL THE POWER WITHOUT EVEN
ENTERING INTO FIRST GEAR. UPON
ACCELERATION I SHIFT WITH THE PADDLES
ON THE WHEEL AND JUST ENJOY THE RUSH!!!
DASHING THROUGH CURVES LIKE A
PAINTBRUSH ON THE CANVAS.....SMOOTHLY
THANK YOU AUDI!!!
