The suspension of the Audi RS 6 has been designed for high speed performance as well as comfort on long journeys. The shock absorbers and spring settings, have been adapted to the new level of performance.

This system reduces pitching and rolling movements about the longitudinal and transverse axis of the vehicle entirely without the aid of electronics and solely according to the laws of fluid dynamics.
