We’re liking this Audi RS6 on retro wheels
1016 Industries sticks some carbon fibre onto Audi’s V8 estate
The current C8 generation RS6 is the first proper RS-spec wagon that Audi has ever sold in the US, and it would seem that American tuners are very happy about this indeed.
Just check out this circa $20k kit from Miami-based modifier 1016 Industries, for example. The extra aero bits are all made from carbon fibre and include a relatively subtle front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser.
There’s also a larger roof spoiler, a hefty bonnet scoop and those excellent retro-style RDB wheels. More than a hint of the old RS wheels by BBS about them, isn’t there?
Of course, if you did go for the full kit, the 1016 Industries conversion would make your RS6 rather expensive indeed. Prices start at $121,900 for the 592bhp, 4.0-litre twin turbo V8-engined wagon in the US right now, meaning you’d be paying well over $140,000 for the pleasure.
Still, more retro wheels on fast estates, please…
