2021 Audi RS6 Avant

The 2021 Audi RS6 Avant is one of the most attractive cars you can buy today. And if we weren't already swooning over Audi RS's first U.S.-bound hot-rod wagon (finally), it had to go and make our hearts flutter even more with a limited Nogaro Blue edition. You know, like the first RS car ever: the RS2 Avant.
Europeans already have a similar RS2 Avant–inspired package for the RS6 Avant, and it's also available on the TT RS coupe, RS4 Avant, RS5 coupe, RS5 Sportback, and RS7 Sportback. Now the U.S. is finally getting an RS wagon, the RS6 Avant, and it's also coming with a special edition to honor the 1994 RS2 Avant: the RS Tribute Edition that's limited to just 25 cars.

Like the first RS-spec car it's based on, the RS Tribute Edition is finished in beautiful Nogaro Blue with silver wheels and red-painted brakes. Those are 22-inch trapezoid-design wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero PZ4 summer tires, and there's also black trim on the grille, side skirts, roof rails, and rear diffuser.

The RS6 Avant is powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 that produces 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. The RS Tribute Edition comes standard with a sport exhaust. Audi claims this first RS wagon to reach U.S. soil will reach 60 mph in 3.5 seconds.

Unique to the RS Tribute Edition is Denim Blue contrast stitching, and it comes equipped with heated rear seats, a head-up display, and a Bang & Olufsen sound system. The special-edition cars also have Audi's driver-assistance package, which includes adaptive cruise control and lane-change assist.

The 2021 Audi RS6 Avant RS Tribute Edition is available to order now for $137,845.
