A wagon that really hauls ass!

It's hard for me to think of a station wagon as anything more than a people mover. I mostly blame that on the 70s era wagon my aunt had for that fact. The new and thoroughly badass Audi RS 6 Avant is a wagon of a completely different type. This beast of the car packs a twin turbo V8 engine.

That engine produces 560 hp between 5700 RPM and 6700 RPM. It also produces over 516 pound-foot of torque between 1750 RPM and 5500 RPMs. The car has a top speed of up to 189 mph when properly equipped.

The incredibly powerful V-8 is able to push the car to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds. The Audi also has a full-time all-wheel drive system and plenty of room for people and stuff. This is a seriously high-performance car capable of being driven each day with no fuss. Pricing and availability for the car are unknown at this time.

Audi Kills A6 Hybrid Because Nobody Bought It

Oct 23 2014 5:23pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Three years ago, Audi launched a hybrid version of the A6, and the company hinted strongly that it would be sold in the U.S. as well. But those plans never materialized and now it is too late: The A6 hybrid has departed this world after just 4000 units built. Requiescat in pace. Back in 2011, we spent considerable time behind the wheel of the A6 hybrid. Powered by a 2.0-liter TFSI four with 211 horsepower and a 54-hp electric motor, it produced combined system power of 245 horsepower. Ful ...

Mini Lowers Cooper Hardtop MPG Ratings After EPA Audit

Oct 23 2014 5:11pm CDT | Source: Cars.com

The redesigned 2014 Mini Cooper Hardtop is one of those rare cars that puts a grin on your face and keeps it there even after refueling. The Cooper's window sticker lists highway fuel economy ratings near or above 40 mpg, depending on model, but it turns out that's not the case. According to the EPA, the frugal, fun 2014 Cooper isn't as frugal as Mini originally reported, and the agency is dinging both the Cooper's tur ...
