    I'm going to start a daily routine of posting about getting the C7 RS6 avant on Audi USA Facebook page. It may be ultimately useless but it's worth the 2 mins of my time to try! Anyone else care to join me? The more who do the better our odds of success!

    The US has no Audi diesels except an A3 in FWD and a Q7 in 3.6 (where are all the rest? Where is the Q7 V12 diesel?)

    If Audi "thinks" that they are unable to sell RS models or even an Avant: how does Merc do it with all the AMG models, diesel models? BMW with their "M" models?
    What about those TOP sales numbers posted by Audi year after year?
    What about all these "development" platforms for Le Mans? etc, etc, etc.

    It IS frustrating to the point of almost giving up on the Audi Brand...

    To be fair to Audi of America they just don't sell enough A4, A6, A8, Q7s to get much freedom from Germany. BMW and Mercedes sell almost 2.5 times more cars per year in the US which makes special editions mucj easier to pull of. Add limited RS availability and euro to USD exchange rate and US certification costs and the limited US lineup begins to make sense.

    How many 130,000 Q7 V12 TDI diesels would they have sold in America? Audi even canceled it in Europe.

    They could have sold up to 2000 of them! You can sell that many of anything! Go try to build a Porsche Cayenne on their website....when I got done optioning it the price was $193,000...
    also I think there are a lot of people currently driving AMG's and M's who would buy RS's if they were available! My guess is that if they expanded the RS lineup then they could easily take at least at least a 3rd of the hi-po luxury market! Audi just builds better cars (just go look at those pictures on the other thread), and if they bring them they will sell them!

    Dear Friends,

    after a successful time at the summercamp for obesity, the new Audi RS 6 has been sent back to the Gym to pack on some extra muscles. Not that it has been weak against its direct competition (has been on top already) but it has been considered as "needs more" to give the potential customer the most powerful and fastest Audi RS car ever.

    Please admit muscles do not grow over night, due to that the release has been delayed. Other than that you would have seen the next Audi RS car in Paris next month.

    Is the Audi RS 6 coming to the USA? The premiere of the next Audi RS car will not be in Europe.

    Qisha

    PS: it IS a good thing to show AoA your appreciation and interest for the next Audi RS 6. Audi Germany engineers, builds and delivers what AoA is stating to be able sell. Talking about the Audi RS 6 Avant: if the US market demands the fastest production wagon and AoA can sell a adequate qoute for a reasonable price, why should the executive board decline? However in the end everything that counts are numbers, like with every business today. We might end up with a Website asking "Do you want the fastest...".

    If I'm understanding you correctly you dressed this wolf up in sheeps clothing and tested it, realized you had built a car that was better than the best from AMG & M, so you decided to go full on Shock&Awe and build a car that's more or less aimed past them straight @ Brabus & Alpina? Like a demoralizing display of force? And better than that it will be debuting at either the New York or Detroit Auto Show? And it WILL be on sale in the US, possibly even as an Avant if enough of us beg hard enough? I realize you probably can't say any more than you already did, so you can just post a simley RS6 flag thing if I'm close!

    I heard long ago (more than a year?) from my "sources" that we would be getting the C7 RS6. However, rumors are always subject to changing circumstances. Being that my sources are near, and have connections into, AoNA HQ in Reston, I took them at face value, but until it's announced, as far as I'm concerned, it's just not happening.

    Regardless, a $180K price tag is just out of the stratosphere. And, if that's going to be the case, I will really struggle with what to replace my C5 with. At this point, I'd actually PREFER the Avant RS6, if I have the option.

    I hope this extra delay is not going to make the RS6 arrive again just before the facelift. In the past the only reason that has stopped me from buying Audis is the fact that they were "old" on arrival and the new model even if no RS model was much more modern. Now I am so fed up with the Panamera Turbo that I am seriously considering the RS6. I love the new M5, but for me AWD is a must. I also hope the price will be reasonable. Where I live the previous model cost exactly as much as a Panamera Turbo, but with less standard equipment and a extremely high depreciation rate, as it was overtaken by the new model, even if with smaller engines.

It will be only available only in an Avant and I was told it would not come to the USA because station wagons don't sell. They took my camera and phone, so no pictures obviously. Amazing detail, muscular, V8, TT. Gorgeous car. Quite the experience to see the Neckersulm facility.

    I got a one on one tour of the R8 production line and got see the all the custom paint jobs and interiors you could imagine. You literally can order any color, any wood, any steering wheel for any car you want. The RS5 in a deep maroon was amazing. I have many more pictures of these custom cars if you want to see them.
    Can you confirm that the first rendering of the white RS6 is close to the finished product, or atlleast if it isnt, because after seeing the RS4, I am pretty sure thats what it will look like.

    Sorry, but you are wrong, where I live the previous RS6 cost 10% more than the R8 V8.

This is not grandpa's sedan and as such should stand out amongst the crowd. The photo here doesn't stand out IMO. It blends in all too well. If you are a fan of the sleeper feel, than this probably floats your boat. Personally, if I need to spend gobs of $$ to get the elite halo car, it needs to stand out as being significantly different from the counterparts in more than performance.
    After living with the Panamera now for 2 years and being cameraphoned everywhere I go, this is exactly what I am looking for. I though didnt like the new RS4 as much as the old RS4 avant. Hope it looks good live.

    Nonetheless, I would have been interested in the RS4 as I mostly drive alone and in the city, but I think making a pure V8 without turbocharging was an error on the part of Audi these days, when turbocharged engines are getting unbelievable milage. I was going to buy the RS5, but thought a V8 without turbos was outdated allready then in this age of cylinder shutoff, start-stop functions etc... The fact that they came with the same concept as the RS5 a few years later surprised me.
