A special series dedicated to the original Audi RS.

Finally, the Audi RS6 Avant is no longer a forbidden fruit. To coincide with the long-awaited arrival of the supercar in North America, the German company is unveiling a special series that goes back to where it all began, the RS2 Avant. A fast family car built by Porsche with many Zuffenhausen-designed parts represent the origins of the faster Audi models.

The new Tribute Edition is based on the RS6 and takes inspiration from the iconic five-cylinder car of the mid-1990s using a similar Nogaro Blue paint job. It is paired with black accents on the front grille, side plates, roof rails, and mirror caps in the main body color.

Also, the novelty received 22-inch wheels with steel brake calipers painted in red, which creates a contrasting effect and matches the RS6 badge. Retro touches are featured on the interior, while Denim stitching continues the Nogaro Blue theme on the outside. The same Denim blue was applied to the leather-covered lower panels of the Valcona S Sport seats as well as the RS floor mats.

While the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 carries over from the standard RS6 with 591 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque, Audi is installing a sports exhaust system as standard equipment for the more powerful car.

In addition, the Ingolstadt-based brand adds a driver assistance package with adaptive cruise control with lateral support, and the Executive package is part of the equipment and includes a head-up display, a door closer, heated rear seats and leather upholstery. As a finishing touch, Audi adds a Bang & Olufsen audio system.

The 2021 RS6 Avant Tribute Edition, a limited edition of 25 cars, is priced at $ 136,800 and Audi is already taking orders.
