You have to sit back and applaud a car like the Audi RS6 Avant. As we've noted with amazement countless times, it's a station wagon capable of outgunning supercars. In Europe that sort of thing flies, and while it still won't be making the transatlantic voyage (even though we're sure that, with a set of wings attached, it could get here on its own), even back in the old world not everyone is keen on the estate body-style. Which is why Audi is preparing a conventional four-door sedan version of the RS6, which our photographers spied all but completely undisguised out on the street a little over a month ago. Reports now indicate that the twin-turbo V10 super-sedan will be unveiled at the upcoming Paris Motor Show this coming October. We can expect the sedan version to carry the same mechanicals as its wagon counterpart, however certain visual updates are expected to be shown on the top-of-the-line RS6 sedan before they trickle down to the entire A6 range.

      As cool as the sedan is, I would rather own the wagon. Coolest wagon since the '55 Nomad.

      Ugh, that just ruins it for me. 600 horse sedans are everywhere, but a 600 horse wagon? That's just pure, unadulterated kickass.

        Also Maybach 57s and 62s. So four total.
        • 7 Years Ago
        The only two...
        Hardly a saturated market.

      x2, i'd kill for an RS6 Avant.
      • 7 Years Ago
      while I would kill for an rs6 avant... why not an RS5? same platform as the a6...
        • 7 Years Ago

        The A6/S6/RS6 and A5/S5 do not share the same platform

        A6/S6/RS6 is build on the C6 platfrom only used for the A6/S6/RS6 and allroad

        the A5/S5 is build on the MLP platfrom shared with the A4 and Q5

      You just can't get any cooler than a close to 600hp wagon. This sedan is just another Audi, but the wagon is greeeeeat.

      I love the idea of bringing over the wagon too but it would simply not have the same popularity as the sedan.
      I was reading about the wagon one day and my friends asked me why I was reading about a station wagon. I told them about how it had insane power but they kept saying "..but its a wagon! Who would want to drive one of those?"

        Eff what other people think. I'll never consider a hater's opinion when researching a car.

        If they brought the RS6 Avant to the States in the obviously limited supply that they would manufacture, they would sell every one.

        Because despite them not being well liked in general, what matters is how well liked by the people who are interested, and the answer is A LOT!

        Its a niche market, but niches are full of die-hard fans.

        Not sure what you lot are about with this wagon, but it's an Avant. While you may think, it's the similar shape to the disgusting buicks, chevys and fords that have endeared stationwagons to the American consumer, but this is too sexy to have the same label. Please refrain from calling it by anything else other than "The S.E.X."

        As a current Avant, check that, obsessed Avant driver, not going with an sedan was one of my best decisions ever. They are highly underrated cars, and god damn sexy with those long lines. Especially with some tinted windows and the right rims, you really can make them look sweet.
