Corrupting power.

Larger than life.

Widened by 40 mm on each side, the RS 6 is larger than life. Under the skin, the rippling muscles are barely contained, while the large air vents add to the menacing appearance.

Piercing vision.

To make the perfect monster, pieces from other models were required. Using the slimmer headlights from the A7 Sportback, the RS 6 Avant has a focused and sinister stare. The LED lights, front and rear, feature unique RS lighting animations too.

A lair of luxury.

Retreat from the exterior menace to a luxury lair. Crafted from the finest materials, the interior of the RS 6 Avant is ready to pamper after the punishing performance.

The creator's seat.

Big boots.
