Find of the Day: 2003 Daytona Grey Audi RS 6

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="47298"] words: Bill, photos: Speedärt Motorsports With the start of our weekly Find of the Day video episodes, I thought it would hard for me to find an Audi that I can just use for the website but I didn't have to worry; there are so many great ones out. Take this Daytona Grey RS 6 at Speedärt Motorsports in Miami for example. While searching for my three picks for this week's episode, I ran across this and knew I couldn't wait until Friday......

U.S. Spec Audi RS 6 Avant Spied in Orlando

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="45832"] It's about that time that an Audi RS 6 Avant would be showing up in the U.S. market. With early order holders having placed their orders and the car on sale in Germany, it was only a matter of time. Nevertheless, we're in the midst of a global pandemic and most American states are on lock down for all but the most essential services. Well... maybe not Florida, and that's where Facebook user Rickey Singh spotted this particular car. [embed...

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="37139"] words: Bill, photos: Audizine member B5stgIII Everyone's attention is on the new Audi RS 6 Avant coming to the States as a 2020 model but what about the other RS 6 that made it to the States? The C5 RS 6 came over as a sedan instead of the uberwagon but it's nothing to ignore. This example found on Audizine has only 83,xxx miles on it and looks like it's had a ton of maintenance in the last year. [gallery link="none" columns="1" size...

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...

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

Doug holds an interesting space and a lot of influence in the lexicon of car journalists, and so when he calls out Audi it's certainly worth taking note.

Find of the Day: Former Prince Harry Audi RS 6 For Sale

We typically choose Find of the Day cars on the market from cars available in the USA for our predominantly American readership... typically. On occasions we will make an exception, and the grey RS 6 Avant you see here qualifies. You see, it was driven for a year by England's Prince Harry, and for royal watchers it was perhaps most paparazzi-famous when the young prince used it to take then girlfriend Meghan Markle to Pippa Middleton's wedding reception. If we had to guess, we'd proba...
