The Audi RS 6 Avant, with its 591-horsepower twin-turbo V8, huge bodywork, and three.6-second 0-60 time, is already one racy station wagon. The RS 6 GTO idea, nevertheless, makes it significantly racier. This particular one-off is designed to commemorate the Audi 90 IMSA GTO race automotive that was campaigned with nice success by Hans-Joachim Caught within the 1990s.
A part of Audi’s yearlong celebration that marks 40 years of Quattro — which has already given us a particular limited-edition TT RS — the wagon’s motorsports makeover is alleged to have been the work of apprentices at Audi’s Neckasrulm meeting plant, in accordance with a report in Autocar.
In addition to the race-car-inspired graphics and GTO badging, the idea has a customized entrance fascia with an enormous decrease air consumption and a closed-off higher grille. The entrance spiller is accentuated with a crimson stripe that extends round to the decrease facet bodywork. One other reference to the race automotive is the side-exit exhaust shops (though it isn’t identified in the event that they’re practical). On the rear, an enormous spoiler sits atop the liftgate. Probably the most dramatic design component, nevertheless, may be the strong white wheel covers.
Inside, the rear seat has been eliminated and a roll cage put in, full with side-window netting. The 2 entrance seats are changed with red-and-black Recaro racing buckets with four-point harnesses.
We do not count on the RS 6 GTO to achieve even restricted manufacturing. This RS 6 GTO, nevertheless, does present that Audi’s racy wagon makes an ideal start line for an actual racer — or an idea that commemorates one.
