I love estates. Why Americans haven’t embraced them with open arms remains one of life’s great mysteries. The idea of being able to haul 6 months worth of Costco goods, while hammering the pavement at Ferrari-like speeds is extremely appealing.
The Audi RS6 Avant is a thing of beauty. Where BMW continues down their road of love-hate styling (think new 3 Series grill), Audi’s been churning out attractive, contemporary designs that allude their the performance intentions.
The Avant’s 560 horsepower 4L V8 twin-turbo is enough to get even the most seasoned estate haters to take notice.
Despite the power, the Avant allegedly gets 25 mpg. Even if it doesn’t, do you really care?
Please Audi, give us a break. Send them over and I guarantee you people will buy them! Americans are more sophisticated than we used to be!
The Avant is set to debut next March at the Geneva Motor Show.
