When a model reaches its maximum: The New Audi RS 6 Avant GT

The new Audi RS 6 Avant GT1 is the pinnacle of the model series. The special edition is packed with exclusive details for both the exterior and the interior. An impressive pass-through roof edge spoiler, redefined diffuser, and 22-inch wheels in a distinctive design underscore its top position in the model series. The interior features high-quality bucket seats, a fresh colour combination, and individual numbering in the centre console as exclusive accents. Lightweight adjustable coil over suspension unique to the RS 6 Avant GT1 and a reworked quattro sport differential on the rear axle sharpen the driving experience. The twin-turbocharged eight-cylinder engine in a V-layout has an output of 463 kW (630 PS) and delivers 850 Nm of torque from 2,300 to 4,500 rpm1. Delivery of the Audi RS 6 Avant GT1 will begin in the second quarter 2024, the price starts at 219,355 euro.

An unparalleled appearance

The new Audi RS 6 Avant GT1 stands out from other models in its range, the RS 6 Avant2 and the RS 6 Avant performance3 version, thanks to its even more impressive appearance based on the RS 6 GTO concept. The striking front end takes obvious inspiration from the RS 6 GTO concept.

The Singleframe and the air intakes are finished entirely in high-gloss black, which makes the car appear even lower and wider. Vertical blades in the front apron, a new intake grille, and a powerful front splitter integrated into the bumper enhance the sharpened look. For the first time, Audi Sport GmbH is not only using a fully redesigned hood but is also manufacturing it from carbon fibre. The one-of-a-kind finish makes the redesigned hood’s carbon material a real eye-catcher, and it is impressively framed by the colour of the body. Integrated air outlets behind the large 22-inch wheels reduce air pressure in the wheel arch and improve brake cooling. Like the hood, the fenders housing the large wheels are made entirely of carbon fibre for the first time – a highlight on the vehicle itself as well as for Audi Production.

Next-level performance

The new RS 6 Avant GT1 has a power output of 463 kW (630 PS) and a maximum torque figure of 850 Nm. That is an increase of 22 kW (30 PS) and 50 Nm compared with the RS 6 Avant2 base model. The spearhead of the series sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.3 seconds, 0.3 seconds faster than the RS 6 Avant2. The RS 6 Avant GT1 accelerates to 200 km/h from a standstill in just 11.5 seconds, 0.5 seconds faster than the RS 6 Avant2. The standard top speed is 305 km/h (190 mph), negative acceleration is handled by the standard RS ceramic brake system.

The power of the 4.0 TFSI is applied to the permanent all-wheel drive quattro via the standard eight-speed Tiptronic gearbox with optimized shift times. Like the RS 6 Avant performance3, the RS 6 Avant GT1 uses the latest version of the locking center differential. Particularly light and compact, it distributes engine power to the front and rear axle at ratio of 40:60. If slippage occurs, more drive torque is automatically applied to the axle with better traction – up to 70 percent can flow to the front axle and up to 85 percent to the rear axle. The reworked center differential improves driving dynamics, ensures noticeably more precise cornering, and makes for less understeer at the l
