Should Audi make a new RS6 saloon?
An unofficial glimpse at a new-school RS6 sedan has got us all excited
There’s a brand-new Audi RS6. You might have noticed. Like the RS6 that went before it, it uses a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine with a whisker short of 600bhp. And like the RS6 that went before it, you can only have it as an Avant.
Which is fine. We adore fast estate cars. But what if Audi broke with its recent tradition, and once again made an RS6 saloon car? This, according to internet rendering geniuses X-Tomi Design, is what it would look like.
What we have are the new RS6’s aggressive visual flourishes – that shouty, angry mouth, a heavily sculptured bonnet and those arches – applied to a four-door that’s been painted a garish orangey red rather than the Avant’s subdued, stealthy grey.
Looks good, no? In a world where we regularly campaign for BMW to bring back M Division Tourings, having to pester Audi to make RS saloons might seem odd. So should we?
