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.

Honda Facing Parts Theft, Railcar Hijacking, and Quality Issues at New Mexican Plant

Oct 28 2014 3:25pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

We like the Honda Fit, as it delivers a large amount of behind-the-wheel fun in a small, clever package, and we’d recommend it to just about anyone shopping for an affordable, practical runabout. Unfortunately, we would have to add the caveat that it might take a long time to get one: Automotive News is reporting that production of the Fit and its upcoming HR-V sibling are severely delayed. Fit shipments are delayed by two months, the industry paper reports. And th ...
