Ask any Audi enthusiast what their favorite body style is and most would say the Avant (totally unscientific fact not backed up by anything other than my own personal opinion as a wagon enthusiast). Before the arrival of the C8 RS 6 Avant and A6 allroad, the last big Avant we got in the States was the C6 3.0T V6. For many, that was good enough but to Audi Club member Jake (whom we affectionately call Jake from Kansas City), not so much. As with many stateside enthusiasts, he longed for more. The solution? Buy a C6 S6 sedan (which were imported) and swap out the 5.2 V10 into his Avant. After 2 years of fun and with life changes happening, Jake decided to sell his Avant since it was sitting and it deserved to be on the road. Here’s the ad:
In addition to the engine swap and Milteck exhaust, the full interior was also swapped over and an alcantara headliner was installed. Other little bits were also replaced. All the hard work has already been done and it’s just awaiting its next owner…why not you? You can see the transformation of this A6 into an S6 by going to the QuattroBarn channel on YouTube. The price is $40,000 and you can find it HERE.
