    If i remember well around 5000 RS6's were built but i don't know how many of these went to USA, UK and Europe.
    999 RS6 Plus were made and i think these cars were only available in Europe(i'm from Europe and don't know how many RS cars went to the USA.)

    I've read in several different car mags that less than 1000 RS6s were imported to the States. My grandson (S4 chipped) says the number is more like 880.

    They are very rare here in New England. I've only seen two since owning my Avus and I've been to a couple of Audi gatherings.

    USA RS6 cars

    You guys are right that in the US only RS6 saloons, no estates (ie sedans only). There was originally supposed to be around 800-900 cars, but Audi was successful enough in the US to bring more cars. Since AoA headquarters is close by and many friends who work there said the true US number is closer to 1200. Canada got a few hundred more cars, so probably something like 5k in Europe, 1500 in US and Ca, and another 1000 RS6+ cars so 8000 is probably very accurate.

    I'm new here, but I read 880 from my research online

    I think this is correct since the dealer I bought my RS6 from recently is the largest in the United States and has (3) RS6 units for sale right now (well only 2 now!). The GM says 881 is the actually correct count... 1 was not titled and is at Audi North America.

    this thread is the top result in google and so i wanted to update with some authoritative numbers from Audi Customer Service (who if you hit them up on chat will tell you the production numbers for your specific combination).

    The total number of RS6 4.2 Automatic Quattro models produced for the US market in 2003 is 1,435.

    Of those, only 232 were made with Mugello Blue Pearl Effect exteriors, and only 152 models were produced with Mugello Blue Pearl Effect exteriors and Silver interiors.

    We need to setup an RS6 New England or at least Massachusetts gathering in the Spring once we get this silly virus out of our back yard.
    I wonder if we will get a similar number of the new RS6 in the US?

    It is nice to see that Audi of America gives out consistent information, as I was also told there were 1435 2003 RS6s sold in the US. Some more stats, mine is Avus Silver of which 399 were produced. Of those 399 only 99 had the Silver interiors. Again, if anyone would like to update the information on their vehicle, please let me know and I can update my unofficial list inspired by this forum:
