When the Audi RS6 Avant first debuted, one of the most exciting parts about it was its design. Most performance wagons — especially from the typically austere Audi — are rather conservative in their styling. Not the RS6, though. It’s butch, muscular and very, very angry looking. However, there will always be those who find cars to be too sedate. Which is why this artist rendered the RS6 to look more aggressive, as well as giving it a livery reminiscent of the 1997 Pikes Peak-winning Audi S1 Quattro.
If you don’t already know, Walter Rohrl won Pikes Peak in 1997 while driving an Audi S1 Quattro. It’s an iconic car with an iconic livery. So seeing the RS6 Avant wearing the latter, while a bit heavy-handed, is still quite cool.
Looking at the render from head-on is the best angle, as you get to see all of its cool details; the louvers on the hood, its crisp lines, the way the front fenders flare out and even how the rear fenders flare out just past the side mirrors. It looks really great and also makes us realize that the Audi RS6 Avant would look great as a race car. Even though it’s a wagon.
The render also gives it new wheels, specifically a set of Rotiform ROC wheels, which look great on the RS6. Especially so on lowered suspension and fat tires.
We love the Audi RS6 Avant and, personally, it would be my daily driver if I could afford it. It’s a monster wagon with a 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8, 591 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. Who wouldn’t want it as their daily driver? Now I’m also thinking that, if I could afford one, I’d also get it wrapped in a ridiculous — yet awesome — classic rally livery just like this render. Then I could pretend I’m Walter Rohrl.
