It looks perfect and will definitely drive like that. However, only 660 interested parties will get their way.

Many will surely remember the 2020 Audi RS6 GTO, a brutal-looking concept based on the Audi RS 6 Avant that was built to celebrate the 40th anniversary of quattro all-wheel drive. The design of the car also referred to the Audi 90 Quattro IMSA GTO racing car. It looked like it was just a design exercise and a halo car, but as it turns out, we weren’t the only ones wondering if something like this could hit the road after all.

After four years, the car heads into production, but it’s no longer as extreme as the concept. It is called the Audi RS 6 Avant GT and will be produced in only 660 units, of which 6 should be reserved for the Czech market. At first glance, it grabs you with its stickers that refer to the racing special from the 90s. Only upon closer inspection do you notice the front bumper with larger air intakes, a different rear diffuser or 22-inch wheels.

But there is more, the GT has a new hood made of carbon, the roof racks have been removed for better aerodynamics, the RS design package is already standard and you will find specific decorations in the interior. Under the hood is the old familiar, twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8, which here produces 463 kW (630 hp) and 850 Nm of torque.

This is enough to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds, or reach 200 km/h in 11.5 seconds, which is 1.5 seconds faster than the standard RS 6 Avant. But it is worth mentioning that the GT version is closer to the stronger version of the RS 6 Avant performance than to the standard RS 6 Avant. The redesigned center differential also comes from the performance version.

The rear sports differential, which was specially tuned for the GT, is also a matter of course. Another difference is the absence of air suspension, which the RS 6 Avant has as standard. Here you will already find straight steel springs with adjustable shock absorbers. However, you can also have air suspension as an option. The car wears Continental Sport Contact 7 tires with dimensions 285/30.

The price for the Czech market has not yet been announced, but according to our information it should be around 5.5 million crowns. That is about 2 million more than what you can currently pay for a regular performance version here.
