- the first batch of audi rs6 avant models has officially arrived in the u.s.
- this is the first high-performance rs wagon that audi has ever sold in the u.s.
- the rs6 avant starts at $110,045 and will start arriving at u.s. dealerships within the next few weeks.
as if to prove that the high-performance rs6 avant wagon really is being sold in the u.s., audi sent over some photos of the first batch of cars arriving at the port of davisville in rhode island. they'll be arriving at u.s. dealerships in the next few weeks, and though the company wouldn't share exactly how many cars were included in this first shipment, an audi representative said the company already has "many" orders.
the 2021 rs6 avant starts at $110,045 and is the first rs wagon that audi has ever sold in america. it has a 591-hp twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter v-8 engine and all-wheel drive, making it a worthy competitor for mercedes-amg's own high-performance wagon, the e63. we drove one late last year and thoroughly enjoyed the experience but have yet to put it through our full testing regimen. now that the cars are arriving in greater numbers, we look forward to doing so and seeing if we can beat audi's claim of a 3.5-second zero-to-60-mph time.
