Lot details

Registration No: RK54 ZBU
Chassis No: WUAZZZ4B05N999295
MOT: October 2022

  • Just two former keepers from new
  • Current ownership since March 2013
  • Much expenditure with marque specialists 'Unit 20' and 'Rye Motors'
  • Number 295 of just 999 European RS6 'Plus' models produced

Building on the standard RS6 of the time, the Plus variant not only featured a more powerful engine, but was also equipped with a sports exhaust. The ride height was also lowered by 10mm, and firmer shock absorbers were installed. The Plus model could accelerate from 0-62mph in just 4.4 seconds, and go on to a top speed of 174mph.

This Audi RS6 Avant Plus is a powerful and practical family car, presented in good condition throughout and with relatively low mileage of just over 86,500 at the time of cataloguing. Under the bonnet lives a 4.2-litre twin-turbocharged V8, producing 473bhp, coupled to a five-speed ZF automatic transmission. Originally supplied here to the UK and first registered in September 2004, this RS6 Plus has just two previous registered keepers. The current owner acquired the car in 2013, and has since covered some 23,000 miles behind the wheel.

Today, the bodywork presents in good condition, with flush shut lines and consistent panel gaps. There is no history of accident damage and the 'Ebony' metallic black paint appears to be the factory finish throughout. It rides on the correct set of 19-inch five-arm alloy wheels finished in anthracite, which have been recently refurbished.

Finished to an extremely high specification when ordered (with the original build sheet options totalling just over 4 pages), the cockpit's tan leather contrasts pleasingly with the stealth dark exterior - it remains in very good order, with only minor marks and wear commensurate with the age and mileage. Mechanically, this RS6 Plus appears to be in fine fettle, remaining untemperamental during our recent photography session - Offered with a large file of paperwork, the vehicle has been maintained regardless of cost with servicing carried out by both main dealers and marque specialists. Back in 2018, 'RK54 ZBU' was treated to a new set of coil-over shock absorbers at a cost of £1250.00 plus VAT and earlier this year, a new battery, full service and pre-MOT inspection was carried out, later resulting in an MOT certificate being issued with zero advisories. This Audi RS6 Avant Plus is a very rare ‘super estate’, presented in original and unmolested condition with an enviable factory specification. This era of RS6 is a functional, supremely competent piece of German automotive engineering, with modern-classic status and few are still seen in use here on the UK roads.
