Packed with exclusive details for both the exterior and the interior, the limited edition Audi RS 6 Avant GT will only have one unit imported to Mzansi.
The Singleframe and the air intakes are finished entirely in high-gloss black whilst the vertical blades in the front apron, a new intake grille, and a front splitter integrated into the bumper enhance the sharpened look. The fully redesigned bonnet is manufactured in carbon fibre.
Integrated air outlets behind the large 22-inch wheels (in unique 6-spoke design), reduce air pressure in the wheel arch and improve brake cooling. The fenders housing the large wheels are made entirely of carbon fiber. At the back there is black “RS 6 GT” lettering , a tailgate specially adapted to the design with a visually lowered loading edge, a functional diffuser with a vertically centered reflector that makes the car appear even wider, and a distinctive double wing inspired by motorsport. For the first time in the history of the RS 6 Avant, the roof rails have been removed for an even flatter, sportier silhouette.
The black interior is enhanced by numerous accents in the exclusive colour combination of red and copper, for example the stitching on the steering wheel, the sides of the centre console, the centre armrest and door armrests and the floor mats with “RS 6 GT” lettering.
The new RS bucket seats in a leather-Dinamica combination and the “RS 6 GT” lettering right below the headrests also feature this colour scheme.
The armrests, the dashboard, the centre console including its sides, and the door waist rails are upholstered in Dinamica black microfibre, while the decorative inlays are covered in Dinamica deep black microfibre. The decorative inlays are also available in an open-pore carbon twill structure as an option. The seat belts catch the eye with their full crimson red colour. As a special highlight, the center console features the car’s serial number in the limited run of 660.
The new RS 6 Avant GT has a power output of 463kW/ 850Nm from its 4.0 TFSI BiTurbo V8. The model sprints from 0-100km/h in 3.3 seconds, accelerates to 200km/h from a standstill in just 11.5 seconds and the top speed is 305km/h. As standard, the RS 6 Avant GT features the RS ceramic brake system. Power is sent to the road via a permanent all-wheel drive quattro linked to a standard eight-speed Tiptronic gearbox with optimised shift times. The limited model also uses the latest version of the locking centre differential to distributes engine power to the front and rear axle at ratio of 40:60.
For the first time, and only for the RS 6 Avant GT, adjustable coilover suspension comes as standard. It lowers the ride height by 10mm compared to the RS 6 Avant and offers a perfect combination of dynamics and comfort. A higher spring rate, triple-adjustable dampers, and stiffer stabilisers (30 percent stiffer at the front and 80 percent at the rear) ensure less body roll, which once again increases the fun factor. The necessary tools and instructions for making individual adjustments are also on board. Customers can alternatively order the RS sport suspension plus with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC), or the RS adaptive air suspension.
