2003 Audi RS6 Avant


The RS6’s sheer power gives it a very special feel but there’s no need for heroics at the wheel to make absurdly rapid progress. Tail out thuggishness and uncouth wheelspin has been massaged from the Audi’s dynamic makeup, the electronic control systems ensuring that the car is always comporting itself with utter decorum. Comparisons with BMW’s M5 rather miss the point in this respect, as the RS6 is more akin to a juiced up Jaguar S-TYPE R than the more focused 5 Series. That’s not to say it lacks a wicked side to its personality.

The engine is a gem, the 40-valve Audi 4.2-litre V8 putting in sterling service, in this instance with a pair of light pressure turbocharger thrown into the mix. The low inertia blowers give a wide spread of torque and the correspondingly punchy 9.3:1 compression ratio means the engine never has that typically ‘baggy’ throttle response that many powerful turbocharged cars have when you catch them with their trousers down, off-boost and off-colour. Beautifully finished and classically understated, the Audi RS6 is effortlessly desirable. If you’ve got the means, this is the car for those who don’t do airline food. Obscene power has rarely been packaged so discreetly.

This superb 2003 year Audi RS6 Avant is presented in fine order throughout, with a recent service and associated works which totalled over €12,000. Offered with the original book pack and wallet, the Audi is Dutch-registered and ready to transport the whole family at speed and in supreme comfort.
