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.
On one hand, this is a pretty basic spec RS 6. Click over to the German market configurator and it’s basically a base spec car… well, as base spec as the RS 6 Avant gets.
What’s interesting here is what is otherwise mundane once the car gets to dealers. It’s got amber corner markers. European market cars don’t get corner markers. That’s the tell that this is a U.S. spec car, which other higher-spec versions that appeared at Cars & Coffee Malibu were not. They were German market.
Okay, so not huge news. Even still, we’re guessing those who are hotly anticipating the arrival of the RS 6 will still appreciate this milestone, and this heads up on what the U.S. car will look like.
In case you are wondering, this is a tester likely logging miles for final certifications. Note the Michigan manufacturer tags, consistent with Audi. That the Volkswagen Group has a test facility in Florida, there’s little question just where this car is based. Keep your eyes peeled Floridians.
Rickey Singh was kind enough to share his photos with us, and so we’ve included them here. Thanks Rickey.
