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.

The race to get laser headlights to market was sprinkled with drama, and the question of whether Audi or BMW won is probably not entirely settled.

How We’d Spec It, Good to Be Bad Edition: 2015 Jaguar F-type R Coupe

Jul 29 2014 3:50pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver
