Estimated read time 2 min read

Audi has introduced the RS6 Avant GT as a limited edition model, celebrating its V8 super-estate as the company transitions into a comprehensive electrification program. Restricted to just 660 units globally, this special edition features performance-enhancing aerodynamic modifications, custom carbon-fibre body panels, a distinctive retro livery, and a noticeable price hike compared to the standard variant.The RS6 GT is essentially a road-legal evolution of the radical RS6 GTO concept, which originated in 2020 from a group of Audi apprentices inspired by the iconic 1989 IMSA GTO race car. Based on the top-tier Performance version of the RS6, the RS6 GT marks Audi’s first utilization of carbon fibre for the bonnet, wing, and wheels.This Avant GT model closely resembles the GTO concept, boasting a bespoke livery available in two exclusive paint finishes: one featuring white, grey, and red hues with white wheels, and the other showcasing grey and black tones.Aerodynamic enhancements include a motorsport-inspired double wing, a functional rear diffuser, and an aggressive front splitter, contributing to improved performance. The removal of roof rails and the introduction of 22-inch aero-optimized wheels further enhance its appearance. The interior features Dinamica suede-like upholstery with red and bronze stitching on the seats, steering wheel, and floor mats. Each vehicle also includes a plaque denoting the chosen model number.The suspension and rear differential have been reworked for enhanced agility in Dynamic mode, with a 10mm reduction in ride height and increased stiffness compared to the standard model.Powered by the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine as the regular RS6, the RS6 Avant GT delivers identical outputs of 630hp and 848Nm of torque to all four wheels. However, lightweight materials and aerodynamic enhancements enable quicker acceleration times, with a 0-100kph time of 3.3 seconds and a 0-200kph time of 11.5 seconds – 0.1 seconds and 1.5 seconds faster, respectively. Its top speed remains limited to 305kph.
