Audi has just presented the RS6 Avant Performance Nogaro Edition. A commemorative edition of the most exclusive that pays homage to the Audi RS2 1994, the first model RS history. This family sports is the same color blue of that model and has been equipped with a set of shiny black optical, an exhaust system made of titanium and wheels 21-inch black polished finish.

The engine of the RS6 Nogaro Edition is the same V8 twin-turbo 4.0-liter as the serial version, with 605 HP 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) of torque. With these figures it is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 305 km/h.

A historical edition 705 HP

The style of this edition continues on the inside, where you can see a upholstery Alcantara blue for the seats, door panels and the centre tunnel. The designers have also installed an inner lining made of Alcantara black with blue stitching and floor mats with piping of the same colo. Finally, but no less colorful, with ornaments made of carbon fiber with the nameplate “Nogaro Edition”.

touch-ups interior color blue are very eye-catching, maybe too much so that Audi is aware that some owners could be considered a little excessive. To fix this, the brand will offer an edition Nogaro black replaces upholstery blue for a few details in black color much more subtle. The production will be limited to 150 units and the price in Germany starts at 124.200€.
