RS6 Avant C8 With Audi Exclusive Matte Gray Paint Has The Wow Factor

It’s safe to say we can all agree the new Audi RS6 Avant is among the most desirable cars money can buy, regardless of color. We’ve counted no less than 16 shades in the German configurator, without taking into account the fancy color palette available through the Audi Exclusive catalog. For the time being, the super wagon from Ingolstadt can be had with one of the following four matte shades: Nardo Gray, Navarra Blue, Florett Silver, and this – Daytona Gray.

With good reason, Nardo Gray will likely end up being the most popular of the quartet, but there’s no doubt the Mercedes-AMG E63 Estate rival looks quite fetching in matte Daytona as well. This particular car has the optional ceramic brakes with blue calipers to contrast the body, while the wheels are one of the three larger 22-inch sets replacing the standard 21-inch alloys.

You’ve probably figured out by now the RS6 Avant featured in the adjacent video is on the expensive side. After all, the paint alone costs a whopping €5,800 in Germany and those swanky wheels are an additional €2,000. Add into the mix the optional €2,550 matrix LED headlights with laser tech and you’re looking at one of the priciest RS6 C8 builds so far.

It’s got some extra goodies on the inside as well where we’re noticing the sport seats and the Valcona leather upholstery with the honeycomb pattern, further contributing to the RS6’ massive appeal. We’re looking at a specification made by someone who ticked nearly all of the boxes on the options list, thus creating one of the most expensive Audis ever outside of the R8.

With the RS6, Audi has taken the concept of a wagon to a whole new level, not just in terms of performance, but also when it comes to styling, technology, and comfort. At a steep price, of course.
