In a surprising move to mark Audi Sport's 40th anniversary, the esteemed automaker is releasing a limited edition of the RS6 Avant, dubbed the RS6 Heritage Edition. Drawing inspiration from Audi's motorsport legacy, particularly the iconic 90 Quattro IMSA-GTO from the late 1980s, this exclusive model promises a unique blend of performance and heritage.

Limited to just 500 units worldwide, with a mere 50 allocated for the UK market, the RS6 Heritage Edition commands attention with its distinctive design cues and bespoke modifications. Crafted at Audi's specialized facility in Böllinger Höfe, each Heritage Edition boasts a striking Audi Sport heritage livery, paying homage to its racing roots.

The exterior enhancements are not merely cosmetic; they reflect a commitment to aerodynamic efficiency and performance. A newly designed carbon fibre bonnet, a first for any production Audi, not only reduces weight but also channels the spirit of the IMSA-GTO racer with its unpainted sections. Complementing this feature is a redesigned front bumper, which incorporates a deeper, lower central intake and a larger splitter painted in gloss black. Carbon fibre front wings with GTO-inspired vents not only enhance the car's aesthetics but also serve a functional purpose by improving airflow and brake cooling.

At the rear, the RS6 Heritage Edition sports a new bumper that seamlessly integrates with a flush boot lid, reducing the car's rear overhang and enhancing its sporty profile. The removal of roof rails and the inclusion of a large roof-mounted spoiler further contribute to the model's aerodynamic prowess, echoing the design philosophy of Audi's RS6 GTO concept.

Under the hood, the RS6 Heritage Edition packs the same formidable 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine found in the standard RS6 Avant, delivering an exhilarating 621bhp. Paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, tweaked for sharper shifts, the Heritage Edition accelerates from 0 to 62mph in just 3.3 seconds, thanks in part to a 15kg weight reduction. With the standard RS Dynamic Plus package, drivers can push the car to its limits, achieving a top speed of 188mph.

While the RS6 Heritage Edition may not match the raw power of its IMSA-GTO predecessor, it pays homage to Audi's motorsport heritage while pushing the boundaries of performance and design. With its limited production run and exclusive features, the RS6 Heritage Edition stands as a testament to Audi's commitment to innovation and excellence in the realm of high-performance vehicles.
