Audi Reportedly Planning RS6 Allroad For 2016

Before introducing the new generation of of the A6 will be introduced, the four-ring brand has another ace up its sleeve for the current model.

That is, if AutoBild’s report that an Allroad version of the current RS6 Avant will be introduced next fall materializes.

In this case, the crossover-slash-super-estate is expected to pack the same 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine from the “regular” RS6, which will send the 605PS (596hp) and 700Nm (516lb-ft) of torque to the Quattro all-wheel drive system.

Imagining how an Audi RS6 Allroad will look like is not that hard. Just take the ultra high performance estate, raise its suspension system, add some plastic body cladding, front and rear underbody protection and… well, that’s about it.

Naturally, there’s absolutely no word from Ingolstadt yet. Now that the VW Group is engaged in sorting out the Dieselgate scandal, we think rolling out such a variant for a very small niche is not anywhere near the top of its priorities. It would be great if it green-lit such a project, though, even for a limited production run.
