View Full Version : RS6 at Philadelphia Auto Show
January 11th, 2003, 15:35
Had a private visit with other RS6 buyers (only about 15 people including dealers) on Friday at the Philadelphia Auto Show. Had the opportunity to sit in the car and look under the hood etc. The show car has been beat to death, but you could still see the possibilities. Also was told that the 19" wheels will be an option here in the U.S. Apparently the RS6 production will start in Week 18 and will continue into October as they have decided to increase the production to around 1,100 cars. I found out that my car has a May production date.

Thanks for letting us know it's very appreciated - and welcome to the forum!
Any pictures you can share? (I can host)
As you can see the car need the 19".
Another thing, any news on Recoros or not?
Seem to be the two most popular questions together with priceing.

You americans think you are unlucky to get only 800-900 cars.
I read Australia only gets 20 (!!!) cars in total...

Yo...bass656...did you get those other pix to ErikB? I'm really interested in seeing that Daytona Gray with the 18's from a full side view.

I have the pics but no time tonight to put them online. They're a bit dark, but I'll try to improve them in photoshop.
First time a see a RS6 speedo with mph, goes up to 200 mph.
Just came back after 2 hours on an ice track! I'm sideways Erik! :hihi:

Here they are, a little ahead of schedule.
This one must be blue though, not grey?
Note the 200 mph speedo. :addict:
