here s your chance to buy an audi rs6 in america

If you’ve ever wanted to get your hands on an Audi RS6 Avant, now you’ve got your chance. Bring a Trailer is listing this 2003 example, said to be imported by none other than Paul Walker, with bids up to $57,000 USD. Sure, it’s not a brand new one available from an Audi dealer, but it’s also the fast wagon of choice for Daniel Craig in Layer Cake.

    Another awesome movie reference. When I was reading Barks piece on the SS, this was the car I kept thinking did (slightly) stealthy speed better. I thought these had all been stolen by now.

      @Corey Lewis Just because I get a twisted kick when I kill someone's time in a wagon with a child seat in the back. It's an illness, but it's my illness.

    Seriously. Do Watch 'Layer Cake' It is an awesome movie. The RS6 Avant is bad-ass If I had a kidney to give, I would for this one, but I would need the other one for maintenance. So, hard to shift gears as a freakin' ghost. Whoever gets it, you shall be enshrined in the cool-wagon-hall-of-fame.

    Take it from a long term C5 A6 owner, you don't want to be a long term C5 A6 owner. A few of the 98-'04 gens are still running around, but I see FAR less of them than a couple of years ago. I suspect once those $2K repair bills start coming, that's it for most owners. The factory tech in these cars was also pretty much nonexistent, with US market cars getting perhaps the crudest factory NAV ever offered. You can however easily swap in the NAV head unit from the previous gen A3/TT/R8, which is a major advantage over say the E39 M5. So yeah, save your money, and buy a supercharged B8 S4 instead, and then let APR or StaSIS go to town on it. With even a stage 1 reflash, you'll easily outrun the old RS in a straight line, and in the corners, no contest.

      The design didn't age well either, on account of them using it for so long.

    At my college senior year, a professor had a bright fire engine red B7 RS4 Avant. I was unaware until very recently (today) that this was never brought into the US. I have no idea where he got it from, but it was cool as f*ck!
