Edmunds: RS6 Avant 8:09 around the Ring

http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do....photopanel..1

According to Edmunds: "Stephan Reil, says it will turn a lap of the Nürburgring in 8:09, some 20 seconds faster than the previous-generation RS6."

Interesting. That means that the sedan version will be even faster with 300lbs less.

The sedan will be 300lbs less!?

Actually...I don't know why I find that surprising?

The likelyhood is that it will be able to post a time close to that of the M3 which regardless of the power it is putting down is an amazing feat for something which weighs more than 2 tonne.

Just imagine how quick that engine would be if it was in something like the R8............an 7:35 would be very much on the cards.
