    Exclamation The next Audi RS6 and RS7 (2013/14)

    Let's start a serious thread about the next Audi RS6, 3:rd generation.

    I am told to think "Audi S8" in terms of the driveline, i.e. engine, quattro and gearbox, but in a more muscular A6 body.

    If the overall package can be programmed into a (little) more aggressive style I think the concept will be very nice to drive and live with.

    According to rumors the next RS6 will also be available in the USA.

    I have seen the new RS6 in Neckersulm.

    I was sworn to secrecy, but it is out, including a photo. I had a VIP tour while my US Spec RS6 had the transmission replaced and they literally unveiled the car in front of me. They said I was the first outside of the R and D group to see it, the one, that is not a mule, but a 98% finished prototype. Gunmetal flat grey, avant. 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.

    It sounds like they are treating you like royalty!

    They should have let you drive the mule RS6 for a side by side comparison.
    Avants sell! The Audi-philes know that the Avant is the best of both worlds (high performance and able to carry a BUNCH of stuff!)

    Audi is out of their damn minds! So what if the ugly ass Mercedes E-class and BMW 5-series wagons don't fly out of the showroom floors, I guarantee they could make the RS6 Avant only available in hot pink over lime green and if they set a limit of 800-1000 units for the US they would still sell them all on preorder!! How many people on this forum would rather have an avant than a sedan? I know I would actually pay more if it was an option!! Get your head out of your ass and give us our damn avant already!

    I dont know how they can equate the "average american's" style preference to the cult-like following of the RS owners' preferences. 1000 Avant units to the US - all will be sold.

    What a bunch of bullsh*t. Who makes these decisions? Have they not seen people selling REAL B5 RS4's in the US for like 4x the price of an S4? Have they not seen Avants going for a lot more than sedans?

    Impossible. They will not price it higher than an R8..

    But if it costs 120k to repair I think Audi will just lose money on it

    That totally sucks if true. Looks I've been given conflicting data, but unfortunately your seems pretty credible. I'm still going to keeping squirreling my nuts away for 2013, just in case.

    And I also call BS on avants not selling and the price point being too high! I would choose the avant over the sedan any day. Do they not read this board? These are most of the people that bought their RS cars in the first place...

    So jealous of your experience, btw! Sounds like you had a great time.

    Maybe we could get a petition with at least 500 sigs of people wanting to put down a deposit and send to them? Like a group buy for RS6 Avants? LOL

    If it's $180K, then it means no RS 6 MkIII for me! And I'm only interested in an Avant. The plan would be a stablemate but it will define on the pricepoint.

    I think that was a typo. 80K EUR sounds more accurate. equates to just over 100K USD.

    I agree - the US RS5's that I've seen on the lot have been retailing for 75-83k how could Audi justify charging double for the RS6???

    Also that maroon RS5 pictured above looks amazing! Just saying
