Driving

What is it like to drive?

The RS6 now handles properly. The engine is short - only 497mm - compared with the old V10, and some clever positioning of bits means that the RS6 now has a much-improved balance front to rear. And it shows. It still leads slightly with the nose, but throw in the active diffs and general trickery, and this is a big estate that's proper fun - it'll even slide a bit, though you need space and a smaller imagination than I possess to do it much on a public road.

A fairly recent addition to the range is the RS6 Performance, which has an extra 45bhp for a total of 597bhp. This cuts the 0-62mph time by 0.2secs to 3.7, and you can have the speed limited raised to 189mph. It's £7k more than the standard car, but not massively different. We'd have it anyway because, you know, power etc...
