Australia has long been one of the greatest consumers of the Audi Sport products. Our relatively small population and incredibly competitive automotive market nevertheless seeing Australia consistently amongst the sixth most successful Audi RS markets globally.
With the recent unveiling of the awesome new Audi RS 6 Avant and a number of exciting new Audi Sport products just around the corner, the countdown is on again for performance enthusiasts Down Under for 2020 to sample the mouthwatering array of new high-performance machinery from Audi Sport.
So spare a thought for our friends in the US, where this latest, fourth generation Audi RS 6 Avant, will mark the first time this iconic high-performance model has made its way stateside. That’s right – the Audi RS Avant has not previously been available in America.
“Throughout our 25-year RS history, the Audi RS 6 Avant is one of our absolute icons with a large global fan base,” says Oliver Hoffmann, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH. “We will also be offering the RS 6 Avant in North America for the very first time. As such, we will be tapping into a new market with huge potential and generating further growth.”
Imagine being a performance enthusiast in one of the biggest automotive markets in the world, and not being able to get your hands on an RS Avant for all these years.
Now with the RS models celebrating 25 years, the official word has come through that the Audi RS 6 Avant will indeed call America home from next year and it’s not hard to see why the legions of high-performance fans in the US are excited.
