One lucky Audi enthusiast just purchased himself a brand-new Audi RS6 Avant Tribute Edition. Forget how much it costs, we’re amazed that he was able to actually get one, as order allocation is incredibly difficult to get at the moment. However, before he actually gets it on the road, he had the tuners at MTM take the wrapping off it first, as it’s going to get some modifications before going home.
In this new video from MTM, we get to see the initial unwrapping of the the RS6 Avant Tribute Edition and it looks like such a special moment. The new RS6 Avant is a special car, as this is the first generation to ever be sold in the U.S. market. So to not only buy one but buy the limited edition Tribute car must have been a joyous thing.
The Audi RS6 Avant Tribute Edition is designed to pay tribute to the car that started it all for Audi Sport — the Audi RS2 Avant. The RS2 was the first ever performance wagon from Audi and it was the first car to ever wear the ‘RS’ badge. Its signature color was Nogaro Blue, so the Audi RS6 Avant, the last in a long line of Audi wagons started by the RS2, gets that very same exterior color.
Inside, it gets black leather/Alcantara seats with contrast blue stitching throughout the entire cabin. Aside from those two things, it’s barely different from a standard RS6 on the inside but that’s not bad thing. The interior of the RS6 is fabulous.
Under the hood lies the same 4.0 liter twin-turbocharged V8 with 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. So no added power from the Tribute Edition. Still, it’s worth it for the Nogaro Blue alone, as that color option isn’t available on the standard RS6.
This specific car will see some upgrades before going back to its new owner. It’s also clear, judging by his Instagram, that this new owner has good taste in cars. He drives a green B7 RS4 Avant with gold wheels. Life doesn’t get much better than that. So we can expect to see a sweet looking build out of this new RS6.
