The Audi RS6 Avant is officially the world’s fastest production estate car and it a technical masterpiece! A culmination of power, speed, comfort and all year round usability. We drove the car back when it was officially released and loved it! A crew member recently got a change to spend some time with one. A perfect excuse for us to share some photos with you!
