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.

SUV Review: 2015 GMC Yukon

Aug 21 2014 3:27pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

WHITEHORSE, YUKON – When gold was discovered here in 1896, it brought thousands, lured by the prospect of vast wealth. Many braved, and lost, their lives trying to navigate the rushing waters of Miles Canyon, whose 50-foot basalt walls originally earned it the name “Grand Canyon.” The indigenous folks, who’d already been in the area for thousands of years, wisely chose to bypass it with a portage trail they’d forged long before we sho ...

2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport Long-Term Test Update: All Aglow in Opulent Blue

Aug 21 2014 3:00pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

We still get a little tingly when we look at our long-term Opulent Blue Cadillac CTS Vsport test car, and the tingle sinks in deeper when we think about the power under that sultry hood. With its twin turbos, this car makes as much power as another high-profile four-door in our long-term fleet, the Audi S7. But the Caddy uses just 3.6 liters and six cylinders to make its 420 horsepower; the Audi, a 4.0-liter V-8. In our initial testing, the C ...

2015 Scion iQ

Aug 21 2014 2:30pm CDT | Source: The Car Connection

The 2015 Scion iQ is a somewhat Americanized version of a car meant to fit into the crowded urban areas of Europe and Asia. Since few parts of America resemble crowded Asian or European cities, the iQ has a limited audience here. While the iQ makes sense in certain markets--where space is at a premium, fuel is much more expensive, an ...

Audi S7

Aug 21 2014 11:54am CDT | Source: The Car Connection

The Audi S7 is a beautiful, and beautifully detailed, mid-size five-door hatchback that's derived from the Audi A6 sedan. It calls into question every prejudice you've ever had against that practical body style, but it's more than just a thought leader--it's serious competition against the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class and ...
