Audi RS6 Avant

The master Audi C5 RS 6 quattro (Typ 4B) was the top-of-the-line exploiter of the Volkswagen Radical C5 chopine (1997-2004), and was initially usable as a five-door five-seat Avant – Audis gens for an land or waggon. A four-door five-seat pothouse/saloon followed soon afterward the plunge of the Avant. Derived from the Audi C5 S6 (itself derived from the Audi C5 A6), the RS6 too shares the aluminum construction from the firewall and onwards with the C5 A6s with V8 engines (A6 4.2 V8 quattro, S6 taphouse/Avant). It was manufactured from July 2002 done to September 2004.

Functionary execution figures for the Avant, whilst overwhelming the recommended highschool octane 98 RON “Sup Asset” leadless gasolene signal the 0-100 km/h (62.1 mph) sprint would be realized in 4.6 seconds (s), reach 200 km/h (124.3 mph) in 22.8 seconds (22.6 s for the pub). Functionary figures province an electronically express top fastness of 250 km/h (155.3 mph), although nigh “RS” owners composition that the speeding clipper is instead large-minded on all RS cars, with literal ‘express’ top speeds of 270 km/h (167.8 mph) beingness potential to attain. Victimisation a depress octane-rated gasoline, such as the touchstone 95 RON “Agiotage” leadless bequeath tighten the locomotive mightiness outturn, and let legitimate diminution in execution.

Baggage capability, mensurable according to the VDA blocking method in the Avant ranges from 455 litres (16.07 cu ft), to 1,590 litres (56.15 cu ft) with the arse seating folded devour. For the bar, boot holds 424 litres (14.97 cu ft).

C5 powertrain

For the C5 RS6 powertrain contingent, the home burning locomotive is an all-aluminium metal 4,172 three-dimensional centimetres (254.6 cu in) twin-turbocharged (‘biturbo’), image smash camshaft, 5 valve per cylinder interpretation of Audi’s 4.2-litre 90° V8 gas locomotive (parts encrypt prefix: 077, designation inscribe: BCY), highly-developed and manufactured in Germany and the UK by quattro GmbH and Cosworth Engineering (now known as MAHLE Powertrain). With the increase of the two turbochargers (one per cylinder swear), the motivity yield of the V8 locomotive was increased to 331 kilowatts (450 PS; 444 bhp) at 5,700 to 6,400 rpm, and generated 580 n metres (428 pound·ft) of torsion. The combining of the 4.2-litre V8, varying intake valve timing, and mate turbochargers gave the RS6 an exceptionally all-inclusive superpower isthmus, with visor torsion uncommitted from 1,950 to 5,600 rpm.

Encourage particular of the locomotive includes amply serial electronic multi-point fire shot with aspiration manifold-sited fire injectors, mapped orchestrate ignition with solid-state gamy potential dispersion victimisation octonary soul single-spark lighting coils and NGK longlife twinkle plugs, and 3 whack sensors. Locomotive direction uses a Bosch Motronic ME 7.1.1 locomotive controller whole, which controls all functions of the locomotive performance; including fire rescue, ignition, valve timing, emissions ascendancy systems, and torsion decrease control-the latter operational in connective with the Bosch ESP 5.7 Electronic Constancy Syllabus, as contribution of the “Anti Gaucherie Regularization” (ASR) grip ascendancy scheme. The locomotive is compliant with the European Coupling Euro3 (EU3) criterion, and includes two close-coupled elemental catalytic converters (CATs), two underfloor principal CATs, and foursome het o sensors which care the cylinder deposit selective lambda mastery. This results in a CO2 emissions paygrade of 350 g/km for the Avant and bar in criterion conformation.

It has an electronically controlled five-speed ZF 5HP24A tiptronic robotic transmittance (parts encrypt prefix: 01L, designation inscribe: GAG) (appurtenance ratios-1st: 3.571, 2nd: 2.200, 3rd: 1.505, 4th: 1.000, 5th: 0.804), with lock-up torsion convertor altogether onward gears. It has “mound spotting” capacity, and, scorn many crush articles stating that the gearbox was programmed to “pip” the accelerator for downshift pitch changes, no UK owners deliver always constitute this characteristic to be salute. The transmittal restraint whole ECU incorporates “bleary logic” with its “Active Shimmy Plan” (DSP), with the switching figure adapting to case soul drive styles. ‘Tiptronic’ manual command can be achieved with either the floor-mounted pitch sack jimmy, or the wheel mounted ‘paddles’.

The RS6 was alone usable with Audi’s Torsen-based quattro lasting 4wd, utilising the Torsen T-2 active ‘robotlike torsion biasing’ (ATB) gist derivative (diff), a limited whole which was organism victimised in the 6.0-litre W12-powered Audi D2 A8. The torsion from the locomotive is offset routed from the gearbox turnout spear to the Torsen gist diff, so mechanically shared and apportioned betwixt the battlefront and bum axles.

The breast and bum axle differentials (proportion: 3.197) are a schematic “afford” eccentric, but employ an “Electronic Derivative Mesh” (EDL). EDL is an structured extra part of the Bosch Electronic Constancy Curriculum (ESP) scheme, and deeds by monitoring and comparison the single roadwheel speeds crosswise an axle, and braking an somebody rack which is perceived to bear doomed grip (spinning), thence transferring torsion crossways the axle to the rack/tire which does birth hold. “Anti-Slip Regularisation” (ASR), more normally known as grip command scheme completes the Bosch ESP-related driver aids.

C5 suspension and steering

Utilising the like amply free-lance four-link forepart hanging, and image wishbone back, as its related A6 and S6, the RS6 was lowered by 20 millimetres (0.79 in), with a 30% stiffer give rank, and 40% increased contraction damping. The RS6 likewise served as the launching manakin for Audi’s “Dynamical Rag Command” (DRC) organization. The DRC scheme is primarily mechanical, and uses a heart to allow extra insistency to someone dampers (jolt absorbers) during cornering, quickening or braking; to undermine peal and pitch. The scheme can adapt the harshness at apiece person muffler forever; to keep both a easy rally on neat roadstead, and highschool floor of assuredness and clasp when cornering heavy, accelerating, or braking. The DRC’s independent vantage is that it operates without the demand for complicated electronics, prn in interchangeable systems from Mercedes-Benz and early competitors. Its principal drawback is that the DRC dampers birth been known to miscarry (leaking mobile from the cross-linked circuits), which can dissemble the manipulation and bait timber of the fomite; approximately owners sustain reported needing multiple replacements of wrong DRC units and many drivers suffer opted to substitute the organization with simpler and more dependable aftermarket coilover hanging.

Stand and pennon speed-sensitive “servotronic” might steerage was besides criterion, with a proportion of 16.2, and a turn r-2 of 11.4 metres (37.4 ft).

C5 brakes, wheels and tyres

The breast brakes characteristic set Brembo 8-piston monoblock bracken calipers, workings with radially vented and cross-drilled bracken discs, sized at 365 millimetres (14.4 in) in diam, by 34 mm (1.34 in) fatheaded. The bum features single-piston aimless ATE calipers with merged cable-operated emergency mechanics, paired to radially vented platter and cross-drilled, sized 335 mm (13.2 in) by 22 mm (0.87 in). Figurehead and bottom bracken calipers are ruined in a high-gloss nigrify pigment, with the fronts incorporating the Audi “RS” logotype. Both breast and bum discs are held in by metallic pins to the whippersnapper record hub, and appropriate 1.0 mm (0.039 in) of sidelong caloric enlargement from the hub heart.

Bosch ESP 5.7 Electronic Stableness Plan, with Anti-lock Braking Organisation (ABS), Electronic Brakeforce Dispersion (EBD), and Bracken Attend (BA) was banner fitment.

Thither were tally of iii master equipment producer (OEM) roadwheel and tire types produced for the RS6. In Europe and elsewhere, 19-inch wheels were measure, with an optional 18-inch packet. In the U.S. marketplace, the 18-inch box was the solitary uncommitted oblation. An 18-inch overwinter box, with Dunlop SP Wintertime Mutation M3 tyres (225/45 ZR18 95V) was universally uncommitted.

For 18-inch wheels, the banner tire fitted was 255/40 ZR18 99Y XL with eXtraLoad (XL) valuation. This is frequently accented, and is the alone passport by Audi, as RS6 does librate 1,865 kilograms (4,112 lb). Tyres which are not rated XL are not good (nor effectual, in well-nigh countries) for use. Owners reported determination Continental ContiSportContact 2, Dunlop SP Variation 9000, Michelin Navigate Athletics PS2, and Pirelli P-Zero Rosso as OEM suppliers for tyres on the RS6. Yet, according to ETKA, the Dunlop and Pirelli tyres were afterwards indrawn from prescribed provide, and the Continental SportContact 2 has been superseded by the SportContact 3. An extra tire from Bridgestone has now been included as formally recommended fitment, the Potenza RE050A.

For 19-inch wheels, the received tire fitted was 255/35 ZR19 96Y XL. Nevertheless, thither were debates as to how condom 19-inch wheels and tyres are, as the XL paygrade achieves a 96 Payload Power (710 kg (1,565 lb) freight paygrade). In demarcation, the 255/40 ZR18 XL testament get you 99 Loading Indicant, dear for 775 kg (1,709 lb) per tire. Stream formally recommended tyres from ETKA for the 19-inch rims alone admit the Michelin Fender Sportsman PS2, Continental ContiSportContact 3 and Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta too 96Y XL.

C5 RS6 Plus

‘tween April 2004 and September 2004, thither was a concluding modified run of an evening higher-performance RS6, named the Audi RS6 Summation. This had an increased locomotive powerfulness production (recognition codification: BRV), and produced concluded 350 kilowatts (476 PS; 469 bhp) at 6,000-6,400 rpm, with the like 580 n metres (428 lb·ft) of torsion at 1,950-6,000 rpm. This locomotive was likewise highly-developed and manufactured in the UK by Cosworth Engineering (now known as MAHLE Powertrain). The extra execution was achieved with a new locomotive ascendance whole (ECU), and two extra coolant radiators butt the side-mounted intercoolers (these were received fitment on the measure RS6 in hotter mood countries). Prescribed execution figures show the bailiwick of sprinting from deadlock to 100 kph (62.1 mph) in 4.4 seconds. The RS6 Summation carries on to ambit 200 km/h (124.3 mph) in 20.36 seconds, and has an prescribed top speeding of 280 km/h (174.0 mph).

The RS6 Summation came with Active Bait Restraint (DRC) as stock, and too included a no-cost choice of “Sports Hiatus Positive”, which lowered the criterion sports hiatus by a promote 10 millimetres (0.39 in) complete the criterion RS6. A revised direction excruciate, with a decreased proportion of 14.3 for firmer guidance look was included, and resulted in a turn roofy of 11.7 metres (38.4 ft). The brakes now included cross-drilled discs. The wheels were but useable in the 9Jx19-inch ‘5-arm designing’ alloys, ruined in “anthracite” (colored grayish), with 255/35 ZR19 96Y XL tyres.

The car was usable lone as an Avant, and was sold just in European markets. Ocular differences for the RS6 Positive included the “melanize opthalmic ingroup”, which consisted of blacken cultivation to the frame of the grille, outside windowpane trims, tailboard glower cut, ceiling rail, and release tailpipes. It rapidly sold out erst it was released (999 units summate). The death iii digits of the Fomite Number (VIN) are reproduced on a brass privileged the car, displayed on the kernel soothe.
