Find of the Day: 2003 Audi RS 6 Avant…In The States

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="35981"] words: Bill, photos: Bring A Trailer I need to change the prescription of my glasses. I spotted this the other day on Bring A Trailer and thought it said S6 Avant not RS 6 Avant so I just skipped over it (not that there's anything wrong with that). Too bad but not too late. In my defense, who would have thought a C5 RS 6 Avant would be legal in the States with our 25-year import law? So that begs the question...how is this legal in th...

Some were humorous, some were fantasy but it did the job...we've never gotten ...

Digital Trends: Audi Streamlines Its Product Offerings To Appeal To Younger Buyers

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="32612"] source: Digital Trends Audi is simplifying its lineup to cut costs and increase profits. The automaker has already pared down its line by 27% as it aims for an eventual 45% reduction. Audi believes more youthful shoppers aren’t going to want the same things older customers desire.

Oh. Hello There Next-Generation Audi RS 6 Avant!

Spies in Europe have finally caught the next-generation Audi RS 6 Avant out testing. While the RS 7 has been seen already, the RS 6 has been well-hidden... at least up until now. Whenever the RS 6 Avant has been spied before, it has worn heavy cladding and not given much of a view of what we can expect. This particular car has mainly just funkadelic vinyl on it, and even the wheels look like they may very well be an upcoming production design. Beyond those wheels are the large brakes tha...

An Answer for Doug DeMuro about Audi’s Lineup
