Having recently seen the new A6 Avant, I have to say that I am well impressed by its dynamicas and by the way it looks. The Avant styling is very sleek IMHO and so much better than the 5-Series. What makes it even more desirable is that I just heard it scored 5 Stars in NCAP testing versus the 4 stars gained by the 5-Series. Just add a 5.2 litre V-10 with bi-turbos churning out a creamy 600 bhp and you will have the definitive Q-car. Even before the next RS6 arrives, I'm pretty confident that an A6 with a V-8 would be pretty good. Does anybody have a V-8 A6 saloon and if so what is it like?
