For the first time ever, the Audi RS6 Avant is being sold in America. For years, enthusiasts have been asking (more like begging) the German automaker to ship over the latest version of its supercar-hunting, high-horsepower station wagon. Who needs a crossover, right?
Audi finally obliged last September when the all-new 2021 RS6 Avant made its official debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show. We were immediately smitten. Who wouldn't be with a wagon with a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 producing 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque and standard all-wheel drive? Plus, the RS6 Avant looks the part inside and out.
And now, after months of waiting, the first RS6 Avants have arrived in America, according to Car and Driver. A ship has just docked at the Port of Davisville in Rhode Island and unloaded its precious cargo.
