Find of the Day: 48-Mile 2021 Audi exclusive Voodoo Blue RS 6 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="59665"] words: Bill, photos: EMC911 via PCarMarket Ok, I tried not to have RS 6 Avants as Finds of the Day because it's just low hanging fruit. 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...

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="59251"] words: Bill, photos: Adam Lizotte-Zeisler Needless to say that with the Audi C8 RS 6 Avant finally hitting our shores for the 1st time, there has been a lot of excitement. We've seen RS 6 Avants in 'normal' Audi colors and exciting Audi exclusive colors but the King of the Hill color is Nogaro Blue. Not only does it harken back to the OG RS2 Avant but, at least in the US market, a Nogaro Blue RS 6 Avant means that it is a RS Tribute editi...

Petrol vs. Electric Drag Race: Audi RS 6 vs. Tesla Model 3 Performance

While the rivalry may not be age-old, petrol vs. electric is one that has taken the front seat with authority these last few years.

Video of the Day: AMG A45 S vs Audi RS 6 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="54530"] words: Bill, video: carwow An odd pair to drag since the AMG is a turbo four cylinder and the RS 6 is a twin-turbo V8 but Mat from carwow has a reason.

I don't know what her driving pedigree is but it's probably not as good as Mat's. Normally, I don't spoil the results of a test ...
