Yeah man, and remember I posted AutoZeitung's test with the RS6 vs B5 S. The RS6 hit 60 in 4.2s and did 0-200 in 13.5s.

To beat the M5 is good but to be expected given the extra power and torque, but to beat the Alpina is something much more special.

mehh. . . . wagons. I just think super wagons are silly because they defeat the purpose of a wagon haha. Kinda like a super minivan, can you imagine a 500hp Dodge Caravan SRT8, or Honda Odyssey Type R? Kinda silly, right haha?

They sure have come up with some fancy names like "Avant" and "Touring" to cover up their real name haha. . . . the WAGON!
I might offend a few when I say this, and I apologize ahead of time, but I think wagons, "avants," tourers, or whatever you want to call them, are some the most aesthetically unappealing types of cars ever, along with mini vans and cross overs like the Mercedes R class or Chrysler pacifica. But the Dodge Nitro gets my vote for one of the ugliest cars ever made. . . its almost offending haha.

^^^ lol

I agree with you. I dont see much point in having a wagon with 500bhp+. I mean, how many of us want a rocket wagon that can be tracked and used for it's storage capacity?

Infact, I think having 500bhp+ in the M5, RS6, E63 (even Sedan versions) is quite insane, although not as insane as in wagon forms. I do think it is great though that Audi has made the RS6 more economical than it's rivals AND more powerful. At least it's something.
