Audi RS 6 Avant Begins Production in Neckarsulm

Neckarsulm, GERMANY – This week the RS 6 Avant begins to roll off the production lines of quattro GmbH in Neckarsulm. Production of this new model combines all the expertise of this facility. The body was developed in an innovative and lightweight mixed way at the Audi Lightweight Design Center. It consists of roughly 20% aluminum and many other components made of high-alloy steels. Thus, the new Audi RS 6 Avant is almost 100 kg lighter than its predecessor. The improved power to weight ratio results in even greater dynamics, in increased performance and in reduced fuel consumption.

The 4.0 TFSI engine was also in a modern development from this site. Thanks to lightweight construction and advanced engine technology the engine manages a high-Avant fuel consumption average of 9.8 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers, decreasing this models usage by about 30 percent.

Advantage through technology and in production: In order to increase the efficiency and flexibility in the assembly for the RS models, the 450 meter long conveyor system was completely dismantled and replaced by a modern monorail. The modification improves the ergonomics for work on the RS 6 Avant, optimizes the production flow and creates flexibility for the installation of future technologies.
