Audi RS6 Avant GT: A 621hp Wagon with Racing Heritage

Audi has raised the stakes with its limited-edition RS6 Avant GT, a high-performance wagon that pays homage to the iconic Audi 90 Quattro IMSA GTO from the late 80s. The RS6 Avant GT shares the 621hp twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine with the Avant Performance but boasts enhanced performance figures, reaching 100km/h in 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 305km/h.

The GT model features a 10mm lowered ride height, a manually adjustable coil over suspension, stiffer stabiliser bars, three-way electronically adjustable dampers, and an updated differential with more rear bias. The exterior design draws inspiration from the Audi 90 Quattro IMSA GTO race car, featuring the iconic red, white, and black Audi racing livery and 22-inch wheels.

Limited to just 660 units worldwide, the RS6 Avant GT offers a partially hand-built experience, with various components crafted by German designers and engineers. The carbon fibre hood, fenders, bumper, spoiler, suspension, and exterior wrap showcase the vehicle’s exclusivity. The interior boasts black leather and Alcantara upholstery, red quilted stitching on the seats, and new sport bucket seats with carbon backing.

Audi plans to produce only 85 units for the US market and 7 for Canada, making the RS6 Avant GT a highly sought-after and rare addition to the automotive landscape. While pricing details are yet to be officially disclosed, the limited production run suggests strong demand for this performance-oriented wagon.
