More Power For The New 480 BHP Audi RS 6 'Plus' - Sports Suspension At No Extra Cost | Part Two

Buyers of the RS 6 plus can also order sports suspension at no extra charge. With variable damping, firmer spring/ and damper settings and a ride height 10 mm lower than the original RS 6, creating even sharper road behaviour and handling responses than the original version.

An enhanced counter pressure-optimised sports exhaust system is fitted on the ‘plus’ model with matt black, oval tailpipes which enhance the distinctive sound of the V8 engine. Exterior trim components and roof rails are also in matt black, which visually underline the car’s enhanced prowess. Inside, aluminium pedals signal the car’s sports emphasis.

Even the vehicle identification number emphasises the fact that the Audi RS 6 plus is something special. Its last three digits are reproduced on a plaque inside the car, displayed on the centre console. No more than 999 of this version will be built.

More equipment, more individuality

The Audi RS 6 plus has black natural leather seats and carbon fibre trim strips as standard equipment. Customers can choose between all standard exterior colours of the RS 6 – or between the Blue, Silver and Black/Cognac packages that are available at no extra charge.
