The Audi RS6 Avant has impressively sharp steering considering the wagon’s size and weight, but tuners are always trying to find ways to bring improvements over OEM. Case in point, H&R got its hands on Ingolstadt’s high-speed family hauler and developed a new set of suspension lowering springs. It’s worth mentioning the upgrade is compatible with vehicles equipped with the optional RS sport suspension plus.
Not only do these springs lower the car’s center of gravity by 35 millimeters (nearly 1.4 inches), but they also make the RS6 Avant look even more aggressive. While the car featured in the adjacent images has the original Audi wheels, H&R swapped out them for a custom Vossen set in the video attached at the bottom.
The lowering springs cost €458 and should bring a slightly more direct steering feel compared to the standard Audi RS6 Avant. H&R can also throw in a set of wheel spaces for an extra €77, but you’ll have to get in touch with another tuner should you want more power.
ABT unveiled its 730-horsepower package for the RS6 earlier this year, but there’s an even more hardcore kit available. Wheelsandmore can dial the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 to almost 1,000 hp, and you can rest assured other aftermarket specialists are eager to tweak the speedy wagon. With the RS6 available in the United States, the high-performance Avant is now a more global product than ever before.
Carrying a starting price of $109,000 in the US, the RS6 is certainly not cheap. That said, it’s that type of car that can do pretty much everything, save for going off-road. RS6 Allroad, anyone? It’s supercar levels of fast and immensely practical, so if your garage can only fit one car, this just might be it. Now, if only Audi of America would also sell the smaller and cheaper RS4 Avant…
