All-new Audi RS 6 Avant and the first Marcos ...

This week, Audi revealed an all-new version of one the German company's most revered models; the RS 6 Avant. This is good news in and of itself but for American enthusiasts the news gets even better as it will be the first RS 6 offered in North America. The high-performance machine is powered by a twin-turbo V8 engine that, with the help of a mild hybrid system, produces 591 bhp and 800 Nm of torque. Needless to say, this power is transferred to all four wheels with a standard front/rear split of 40:60, although as much 70% of the power can be sent to the front wheels and as much as 85% to the rear. The mighty RS 6 Avant will be available towards the end of the year in 13 different colours, including the two RS specific colours of Nardo grey and Sebring black.
At the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed, the 50th anniversary of Sir Jackie Stewart's first of three World Championships was celebrated in great style with all three title winning cars in attendance. A less well known but equally crucial car to the successful Scot's career was also at the Festival of Speed; the Marcos GT Xylon. The example present was the most famous of the nine built in 1959 and 1960. These were the very first cars built by Marcos and featured an unusual laminated plywood monocoque and strikingly tall roofline. The GT Xylon featured today was one of the factory cars and was raced by company founder Jem Marsh and more importantly by Jackie Stewart in 1962. With this car, he recorded the first results of note in his career that would help propel him to three world championships.
