Won't be sold in U.S.

Audi has announced the 2014 RS6 Avant will be sold in Australia starting this November at an estimated price of 230,000 AUD.

Good news for those of you living in Australia as the Audi RS6 Avant has been confirmed for a November launch, as opposed to United States where the Ingolstadt-based automaker won’t sell this model. Andrew Doyle who is Audi's Australia chief also said the RS5 Cabriolet will go on sale this July, together with the RS4 Avant, TT RS Plus and the range-topping R8.

To refresh your memory, the 2014 Audi RS6 Avant makes use of a V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine rated at 560 HP (412 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque. All those ponies are sent to the proprietary quattro all-wheel drive system through an eight-speed tiptronic gearbox.

The super wagon reaches 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.9 seconds and a limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). Opt for the Dynamic package and speed limit is increased to 174 mph (280 km/h). With the Dynamic Plus package the 2014 RS6 Avant can do 190 mph (305 km/h).

Audi’s New RS6 Avant on the Starting Blocks for Australia

  • All-new RS 6 Avant to be launched Downunder in November 2013
  • An incredible 412kW and 700 Nm from its 4.0 litre V8 engine, with cylinder on demand technology
  • Audi Australia’s Managing Director, Andrew Doyle, says the company welcomes this impressive new top model to the range

Audi’s all new RS 6 Avant has been launched internationally. This superlative sportscar is heading to Australia for a local launch in November 2013.

Boasting a massive power output of 412 kW and 700 Nm of torque, this incredible performance car is available in Avant-body style only and joins the Audi RS 4 Avant as one of the company’s most impressive achievements – a truly practical sportscar.

With a capacious load-carrying area in the rear of the RS 6 Avant, this all new model, like its smaller sibling, is extremely versatile yet gives nothing away in terms of pure sports performance. The RS 6 Avant accelerates from 0 – 100km/h in just 3.9 seconds.

Audi Australia’s Andrew Doyle says the RS 6 Avant is sure to find favour in Australia because it’s the ‘ultimate’ compromise – a car that performs brilliantly, yet has the practicality of an SUV, in an Avant body-style.

“The all new RS 6 Avant will be a very welcome addition to our high performance vehicle line-up in Australia. It will join the RS 4 Avant, the TT RS plus and the new R8 model – all of which have been introduced in the first quarter of this year to Australian audiences,” Mr Doyle said.

“Without a doubt, 2013 is a year when Audi will introduce a host of extreme performance vehicles to the Australian market. In addition to our RS 4 Avant, TT RS plus and R8, we will also be bringing the all new RS 5 Cabriolet in July.”

“There will be no shortage of choice from the Audi range for those dynamically-minded customers wanting to make the most of high-performance, combined with everyday driving capacity. This model will further cement our reputation as a manufacturer of the highest quality, sports vehicles,” Mr Doyle said.

Whilst exact pricing and specification are yet to be announced for this sporty top model of the A6 range, it is expected to debut around $230,000 + MLP.

The RS 6 Avant is expected to carry a very high level of specification as befits it’s ‘supercar’ badge including 360 degree camera, 20-inch wheels, carbon inlays, adaptive air suspension, digital TV + navigation plus, Audi connect features and an optional Dynamic Ride Control feature and matt quattro styling package.

The previous RS 6 Avant was sold in Australia between late 2008 until 2010. Around 65 units were sold in just over two years.

It because of the luxury car tax- basically the govt slaps an additional 30% tax on the cost of a car over i believe $68,000.00 or thereabout. This tax also applies to extras. It is a clever tax- I wish they would implement it in South Africa. It would stop all the govt officials from driving 5ers, E's and 6's.

Where is the huge difference coming from? 230.000 AUD is around 185.000 euros. In Germany the price is around 110.000 euros.

I don't know what's worse: not being able to buy it, or being able to buy it for Ferrari money...
