Gustav;
Thanx for the pictures in the brochure. The German text on the other hand looks Greek to most of us on this side of the pond

The Top Gear write up could mean war!

Quote:
Ground can be covered between bends with astonishing ease. There’s so much torque on offer. Way more than, say, an M5, which would be humiliatingly outpaced by the RS6. Ease the throttle to the floor and, from 2,000rpm, you are into Ferrari 360 territory. But would the M5 driver be enjoying him or herself more when the straights turn to corners? Now, this is a tough one to answer. It all depends on how you like your cars to handle.
I am looking forward to a complete road test between the two.
I wonder if the quatro system would be a disadvantage in acceleration at higher speeds.

BTW, I've noted that the RS-6 was introduced at the end of the e39 M5 run. I winder if Audi was afraid to compete! Even if the RS-6 is faster, I've heard it will be $80k -$90k in price!

Thanks Gustav! The RS6 is really a beautiful car. Should have excellent performance to back up it's good looks.

I personally like the wagon more. I like the lines more. It is a bit of a sleeper too.

Can't wait for a detailed road test...

Thanks for the great finding, Gustav. Like others, I am anxious to read about a RS6 vs. M5 comparo soon.
