Audi announces RS 6 plus Sport and RS 6 plus Exclusive packages

Audi announced today that it will offer two new limited-edition equipment packages for the RS 6 which will be limited to just 500 units. Each of these RS 6 models promises to be truly unique and will feature a Carbon design package for the engine compartment, 20-inch wheels bearing a 5 segment-spoke design and the sports suspension plus.

The customers can opt for one of two packages: RS 6 plus Sport or RS 6 plus Audi exclusive. The RS 6 plus Sport is offering an instrument-panel hood and center console covered in leather and new RS 6 logo on the front floor mats.

The RS 6 plus Audi exclusive package features seat upholstery, controls, door trim inserts, front center armrest, and the armrests in the door trims covered in leather of an attractive color from the Audi exclusive program but also a custom paint job by choosing from the color range of quattro GmbH.

Under the hood, the vehicle carries the same V10 engine delivering 426 kW (580 hp) and maximum torque of 650 Nm (479.42 lb-ft) between 1,500 and 6,250 rpm.

With these numbers, the car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62.14 mph) in just 4.5 seconds and it exceeds the 200 km/h threshold (124.27 mph) after just 14.5 seconds. The RS 6 plus Sport and RS 6 plus Audi exclusive equipment packages are available now. The Sport package costs 3,250 euros while the exclusive package is priced at 8,310 euros.
