Safety tech is also in high supply, with Audi's latest and greatest systems making their way over to the RS6 Avant. When the wagon goes on sale next summer, look for forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, lane-centering assist and more. All the stuff you'd expect, really.

The RS6's other options are largely cosmetic choices. Instead of the standard 76-inch wheels, you can fit the 77s seen here, part of the "Black Optic" or "Carbon Optic" exterior appearance packages. Several different exterior colors will be available, including a whole range of Audi Exclusive hues, including matte finishes.

Cabin tech duties are handled by the same MMI Touch Response infotainment system you'll find in any other new Audi, with a pair of screens on the center stack that manage traditional multimedia functions, climate controls and vehicle settings.

In addition, Apple CarPlay , Android Auto , a Wi-Fi hotspot and connected-car apps are all here, and standard.

The Quattro all-wheel-drive system shuffles power around as needed, though the standard sport differential ensures power is first and foremost sent rearward. Roll into the throttle as you come out of a corner and you can feel the car's rump hunker down, the torque thrust shoving you forward. The diff isn't so clever it'll fool you into thinking the RS6 is a rear-wheel-drive wagon, but it at least allows for a bit of playfulness from the big boy's hind quarters.
And there&rsquo s also cylinder-on-demand technology (to shut down an entire cylinder bank under light loads), as well as a beautifully seamless 98-volt mild-hybrid system that can activate idle-stop when moving at speeds up to 77km/h or adopt a coast mode between 55km/h and 665km/h.
