[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="59867"] Over a year ago (it seems like a lifetime), we were talking about our next sweepstakes. Our previous one had ended and the prize was a choice between an RS 5 Coupe, an RS 5 Sportback, or an e-tron SUV. At that time, it was the most expensive prize Audi Club had ever offered. "Why not think bigger?" The newest and hottest Audi had just been announced for North America and we had to get our hands on one. The Audi RS 6 Avant was finally co...

BUT the only other one we featured was an RS Tribute edition and with only 25 of them imported to the States, I had no choice. I mean it would have been irresponsible for me not to post that. And now...oops, I did it again. Regardless of the mileage on this one (it's only 43 miles by the way), i...
