Audi RS6 X Stephan Fahr-Becker: the classy airplane

Angular and protruding, the new RS6’s design by designer Stephan Fahr-Becker exudes performance. Even when it’s stopped, it moves forward. Noisy, ribbed, gaping, it continues to question the status quo. It’s a car for connoisseurs and laymen alike. The former wonder if it’s even better than its predecessor (4 generations have succeeded one another), while the latter wonder why they’re turning to a station wagon? Because the RS6 is like a classy airplane. Chic and angular, it can take its sharp silhouette from a school trip to the slopes of Le Castelet. The 600 bhp of the bi-turbo V8 rears up in a heart-rending whine (3.6 s of W at 100 km/h) and outwits the paradoxes of the times. In the city, it’s energy-saving, complete with a starter-alternator, freewheel mode and cylinder deactivation (4/8) that make for a calming effect. The RS line represents 25 years of high performance vehicles, which this big, agile cat is ushering in with class.
