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.

US President Obama Visits Henry Ford Museum
The 1958 Edsel Citation was a car with the wrong price, at the wrong time, with the wrong market. So magnificent was the end of Edsel that its very name became synonymous with failure. Named after the son of Henry Ford, Edsel was determined to become one of the top luxury car manufacturers. It was the late 50s, a time filled with long tail fins and out of the box design, which the Edsel Citation certainly had u ...

Audi to abandon CVTs?

Jul 24 2014 5:57pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Jeffrey Fashion Cares 2014
Filed under: Technology, Audi The continuously variable transmission is one of those technologies that seems to make a lot of sense on paper, but in reality, almost always numbs the driving experience. That's one reason why Audi, according to reports, is planning to phase them out. One of the first automakers to implement use of the CVT, Audi mates CVTs to larger engines than many other manufacturers, which typically install them on scooters, hy ...

It’s a smoking-hot summer’s day, yet I sit in the lap of air-conditioned comfort listening to a 19-speaker audio system capable of rivalling the best home audiophile setup. I’m in the 2014 Lexus LS 460 F Sport, and at this moment I’m utterly content despite coping with slow-moving traffic infused with even slower-functioning drivers.
