More Next-Gen RS 6 Avant Photos from Nürburgring

With the weather turning to spring in Europe, the auto manufacturer development schedule turns to the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Spy photographers first caught the new RS 6 in the area around the fabled German road course yesterday. Today, they've caught the car again, this time out on track. There's nothing new to report in the last 24-hours, so this is simply our drawing your attention to more photos of  the same or a very similar car as was seen yesterday. Even still, we figured you'd not ...

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...

Motor Authority: Decision To Bring Audi RS 6, A6 Avant To US Coming Soon

source: Motor Authority Audi plans to make a decision on whether it will introduce a new generation of the A6 Avant and the hotter RS 6 Avant for the U.S. market soon. CarBuzz initially reported in January that its own source was told by Audi executives that the company had given both wagon models the green light for the U.S., and that they will arrive with the next RS 7 Sportback. However, Audi spokesman Mark Dahncke told Motor Authority on Monday that information is not correct. He s...

An Answer for Doug DeMuro about Audi’s Lineup

There's no doubt that car reviewer Doug DeMuro commands a considerable audience on on Youtube. 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. Today he did in his first op/ed style video, and many of our members noticed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGABAYPguUI&fbclid=IwAR2x_NPyKy9J2ujbNSzVUahCmHeGMoUrQLmHkPtZEtV0238UGMWJn6GSicY Spoiler alert, Doug rants mostly on the lac...

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...

Go For Gold: “ABT Aerowheel” Concept Study Comes As A Limited Series

[source: ABT Sportsline] Speech is silver, just doing is gold – just typical for ABT Sportsline! The Bavarian company will produce an exclusive limited series of the ABT Aerowheel concept study, which was met with great enthusiasm in Geneva. The wheel will only be available in Racing Gold and 21". After the limited special edition ABT RS4-R has now sold out and there are only precious few of the corresponding ABT RS5-R coupés remaining, the Bavarian tuner then already has the nex...

ABT RS6-E: Into The Future With A Double Heart: 1,018 HP In The ABT Prototype

[source: ABT  Sportline] Will we still be able to refer to car enthusiasts as "petrolheads" in the future? Or will they be seduced by the whisper-quiet punch of electric drives? ABT Sportsline uses a fully operational prototype to provide an exciting glimpse of the future of tuning. The worldwide largest tuner for Audi and Volkswagen vehicles shows how to bring the best of both worlds together. The car, which is based on an already tuned ABT Audi RS6, pushes not only the limits of perfor...

Choice Gear: Hot Wheels with Audi RS 6 Avant for 2018

Heads up to Audi RS 6 Avant fans, as it appears the dark red metallic wagon you see here appears to be available in the United States. Yes, it's just a toy, but this 1:64 scale Avant will have to hold you over... at least for now. Here's what we know about this Hot Wheels RS 6. The car is part of Hot Wheels 2018 Super Treasure Hunt set, part of the Factory Fresh series in the Hot Wheels lineup. The car is painted "Spectraflame burgundy" with HW:RS 618 license plate, quattro script logo on...

Audi RS 6 Sedan Rendering by X-tomi

With the new Audi A6 now having been revealed, it was only a matter of time before rendering experts like X-tomi Design began imagineering what the next-generation of RS 6 might look like. Seems that day has come, at least in sedan form. You may remember Audi did build sedan versions of the C5 and C6 RS 6 generations. The onset of the Sportback body style served to render cars like the RS 6 (and RS 4) sedan as obsolete. Even still, it's interesting to see the new C8 A6 in RS form and that...

ABT Sportsline Press Release on Jon Olsson’s RS 6+ With More Photos and Daniel Abt’s Video

words: Bill Cho & ABT Sportsline, photos: ABT Sportsline It never fails. I look for something and can't find it so I go out and buy a new something. As soon as I get home and take it out of its package, I find the old something. In this case, I had to do screen grabs of Jon Olsson's YouTube video of his new RS 6+ for the article (Jon Olsson and ABT Sportsline Team Up for Project Phoenix – RS 6+ Avant) posted earlier today. Within minutes of publishing that article, I get the pres...

Jon Olsson and ABT Sportsline Team Up for Project Phoenix – RS 6+ Avant

words: Bill Cho, video: Jon Olsson Today, Jon Olsson is a happy man. A couple of years ago, he wasn't. In October 2015, his old RS 6 was stolen at gunpoint from its new owner and was discovered burned to the ground. From this: to this: As Jon said in his Instagram post from that day, who would do such a thing? But back to today. Jon posted a YouTube video of him picking up his new RS 6 Avant. A new RS 6 would have been fantastic enough but it being Jon, he couldn't leave ...

Audi C7 RS 6 performance…Sedan

words: Bill Cho, photos and video: Auditography When Audi gives you a C7 RS 6 performance Avant, you make a C7 RS 6 performance sedan? That's precisely what Alex did. He took a brand new 2017  S6 sedan and transformed it into an RS 6 performance with all the parts from an RS 6 performance Avant. This Warsaw resident wanted something he couldn't have like the nutty Americans in our Find of the Day: A6 Avant to S6 Avant. Actually the man who made that S6 Avant is also from eastern Europe. ...

Find of the Day: 2003 Mugello Blue RS 6

words: Bill Cho, photos: Craigslist There are executive cars and then there are executive muscle cars. The C5 RS 6 falls into the second category. The first RS model (and only RS 6) to hit the shores of the States, it made quite an impact. Motor Trend said: "The RS 6 spools up with so little drama, it doesn’t feel as quick as it is. Until you look down and realize you’re going 20 mph faster than you thought you were–and 50 mph faster than your mother would want you to." This part...

Audi exclusive Sonoma Green RS 6 Avant. You’re Welcome.

Even though the Audi RS 6 Avant isn't available in the USA, it still gets legendary status amongst enthusiasts. Who doesn't love a high horsepower station wagon... much less one in the same Sonoma Green Metallic paint tone that's been getting so much attention on the new RS 5 coupé. Throw in brown leather and we suspect this is the sort of car that could create its own cult following. Yes, in some ways we know this is a tease. Cars like this RS 6 Avant aren't currently available in t...
