Despite constant technological innovations, German automaker Audi has never forgotten its roots. To celebrate one of its most iconic releases in the ’90s, the company has now created a limited edition RS6 Avant in tribute of the legendary wagon originally launched back in 1994: the 310-horsepower RS2 Avant.
Taking on the famed Nogaro Blue exterior of its predecessor, this new RS Tribute Edition gives the cool tone a pearl effect finish paired with black optic accents that bring more depth and sleekness to an already speedy-looking silhouette, complemented by a touch of contrasting red by the brake calipers and 22-inch silver five-spoke aluminum wheels. Moving into the interior, you’ll find Valcona S leather upholstery offered alongside carbon twill inlays with Denim blue stitching, completing the car’s sporty yet luxurious aesthetic. As to performance, the wagon runs on a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that can push out a whopping 591 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque, which translates to a 0-60 mph time of just 3.5 seconds.
Limited to just 25 units, Audi’s RS6 Avant RS Tribute Edition will go for $136,800 USD. Head over to the automaker’s website to learn more.
