Profile

The RS6 Plus is the fastest Audi road car to date. For your 8000 premium over the standard model you get an additional 45bhp (but curiously no increase in torque), 2 seconds off the 0-200kmh time, a sports exhaust and uprated 8-pot vented discs up front. This extra power brings performance up to within touching distance of Merc's E55 AMG and the new M5 from BMW. The Plus also offers optional sports suspension for even more secure 4wd handling.

Just 999 will be built, all in Avant (estate) format, with 100 allocated to the UK. A small amount considering we are the world's largest RS6 market.
