The new Audi RS6 is sure to be a huge attraction for super car enthusiasts when it hits South African roads early next year.

Fitted with a 4,8-litre V10 engine, this car is sure to make one's hair stand on end.

The new RS6's engine develops a whopping 426kW, which places it ahead of the BMW M5 and Mercedes-Benz E63.

The RS6's mighty torque of 650Nm is available across the entire range from 1500 to 6250 revs a minute.

The RS6 clocks 4,6seconds in a 0-100kmh dash and reaches the 200kmh mark in 14,9seconds.

Top speed is electronically governed to 250kmh.

All this power will come via a six-speed tiptronic gearbox.

The new RS6 is based on the Audi S6.
