The Audi RS6 Sedan, like the RS6 Avant is powered by a 5.0 litre, twin-turbocharged V10 developing 580 horsepower and 480 ft-lbs (650 Nm) of torque at 1,500 - 6,250 rpm. The 4,991 cc V10 bundles a number of Audi's race-winning technologies – FSI direct fuel injection, dry-sump lubrication and two turbochargers.

The power is run through a six-speed tiptronic gearbox with a reaction time that has been reduced to one tenth of a second, shift time has been halved compared to units used in other models and the gear ratios are short. The driver can also manually change gears either using the shift lever or the paddles on the steering wheel. The RS6 also employs Audi's famous permanent quattro all-wheel-drive. The torque split is 40/60 front/rear for sportier driving characteristics.

The impressive drivetrain of the Audi RS6 Sedan allows the car to hit 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds. The factory set speed limiter cuts in at 155 mph, but this can be reset to 174 mph if desired.

Audi's engineers have also fitted the RS6 with an exclusive damping technology: Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) reduces pitch and roll using purely mechanical means. Hydraulic lines and valves connect diagonally opposed pairs of shock absorbers. When cornering, the flow of fluid to the damper of the compressing outside front wheel increases, providing firmer support and reducing roll. When combined with the sports suspension plus, DRC offers a choice of three selectable damper settings – sport, dynamic and comfort – which can be activated via the MMI.

The Audi RS6 is equipped with 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 255/40 tires. Up front, six-piston fixed aluminum calipers – painted black and decorated with RS badges – clamp down on 390 millimeter brake disks. The rear brake disks measure 365 millimeters in diameter. The rear axle features single-piston floating brake calipers. The floating steel disks feature large cooling ducts and axial perforations for enhanced performance and less weight.

9.5J x 20-inch wheels are offered as an option. These allow the use of a ceramic brake system. The 420 (front) and 356 (rear) millimeter disks weigh a total of 12.2 kilograms (26.90 lb) less than the steel disks. The calipers – up front with eight pistons – are painted anthracite and labeled "Audi ceramic."

The body of the Audi RS6 features a number of distinctive modifications that immediately identify it as a dynamic, top-of-the-line model. These include the single-frame grill, the air intakes, the headlights featuring xenon plus, adaptive light and RS 6-specific LED daytime running lights, the flared wheel arches and deep side skirts, the rear diffuser, the spoiler integrated into the trunk lid and the two large oval exhaust pipes.

Inside the 2009 Audi RS6 the deeply sculpted sports seats provide optimal support and firm hold. The power-adjustable seats are upholstered in Silk Nappa leather, with leather/Alcantara and Valcona leather available as options. Bucket seats with an even more sporty emphasis are also offered for both driver and front passenger. Standard equipment includes the dual-zone deluxe automatic air conditioning plus, a parking assistant at front and rear, an RS leather multifunction sports steering wheel with flat-bottomed rim and a Bose surround sound system. A boost pressure indicator for the two turbochargers in the driver information system rounds out the instrumentation.
