That makes it one of a very select group of vehicles that serve as catnip for car nerds which includes the Mercedes-AMG E63 S wagon and the Porsche Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo.
Audi’s RS6 is coming to the US for the first time as an Avant, and we’re wondering if it’ll have the chops to keep up with the best from Mercedes and Porsche.
The wise old car sages say that horsepower may sell cars, but it’s torque that wins drag races at the local Trader Joe’s to snake that elusive last parking spot. (I think that’s how the saying goes.) In any case, when it comes to rotational force, it plays out much the same with the Porsche offering the least amount of twist at 567 pound-feet, followed by the Audi with 590 and again, the big Benz reigns supreme with a cool 627 lb-ft.

VIDEO: C6 Audi RS6 V10 vs Porsche Panamera vs Mercedes-AMG E63 – QuattroDaily
Super sedans, and their wagon alternatives, are getting insanely powerful and fast as of late. In fact, there isn’t one currently for sale that doesn’t make over 600 hp. But it’s not just raw power figures that make these uber-wagons fast. Fancy gearboxes and launch control systems have come a long way in making these luxury-lined family cars faster than some supercars. To prove how far things have come, Autocar put the two fastest wagons on sale up, the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Sport S E Hybrid and the Mercedes-AMG E63 S Estate, against an old, but still very powerful one ‘ the C6 Audi RS6 Avant.

It seems as if the Germans have figured out the proper recipe for making the best super sedans on the planet. They’ve seemingly figured out that 4.0-something liter twin-turbocharged V8s, automatic gearboxes and all-wheel drive make up the recipe for a super sedan that launches like a ballistic missile. Each car in this Top Gear drag race has such things, the BMW M5, Porsche Panamera Turbo S E Hybrid and the Mercedes-AMG E63 S. But, more importantly, which is fastest?
