Audi reveals the RS 6 plus Sport

Audi is offering two new limited-edition equipment packages for the RS 6 – restricted to just 500 units. With a top speed of 188 mph (303 km/h), a Carbon design package for the engine compartment, 20-inch wheels bearing a 5 segment-spoke design, and the sports suspension plus, each of these RS 6 models will be truly unique. In fact, each of them will be a one-of-a-kind thanks to a numbered badge in the interior. Customers can opt for one of two packages: RS 6 plus Sport or RS 6 plus Audi exclusive.

The Sport version features an instrument-panel hood and centre console covered in leather; an RS 6 logo adorns the front floor mats. Concerning the Audi exclusive package, customers can also specify a custom paint job by choosing from the colour range of quattro GmbH. In addition, the seat upholstery, controls, door trim inserts, front centre armrest, and the armrests in the door trims are covered in leather from the Audi exclusive program. Seat add-on parts are adapted to match the colour of leather in question.

Output of the RS 6’s twin-turbocharged V10 remains at 572 bhp, with maximum torque of 650 Nm (479.42 lb-ft) between 1,500 and 6,250 rpm, turning in a performance from 0 to 62 mph in just 4.5 seconds and 125 mph after just 14.5 seconds. The sports suspension plus with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) reduces pitch and roll by purely mechanical means and the driver can switch between the three operating modes; comfort, dynamic, and sport via the MMI interface.

Both the RS 6 plus Sport and RS 6 plus Audi exclusive equipment packages are available now to order, with the Sport plus version costing approximately £2,800 (3,250 euros) and the Audi exclusive package costing £7,200 (8,310 euros), representing a saving of 50 percent compared to purchasing the items individually.
