2004 Audi RS6 Plus Avant Rare Limited Edition For Sale
The Audi RS6 Plus was a final limited run of an even higher-performance RS6 - it had an increased engine power to 470bhp at 6000-6400rpm and was developed and manufactured in the UK by Cosworth Technology. The additional performance was achieved with a new engine control unit and two additional coolant radiators behind the side-mounted intercoolers. Official performance figures indicate the 0 - 100kph (62.1mph) as 4.4 seconds. The RS6 Plus carried on to reach 124mph in 20 seconds with an official top speed of 174mph.
It came with Dynamic Ride Control as standard and also included a no-cost option of 'Sports Suspension Plus' which lowered the standard sports suspension by a further ten millimeters over the standard RS6. The brakes now included cross-drilled discs. The wheels were only available in 19-inch '5-arm design' alloys, finished in 'anthracite' (dark grey). The car was available only as an estate and was sold only in European markets. Visual differences for the RS6 Plus included the 'black optic pack' which consisted of black finish to the framing of the radiator grill, exterior window trims, tailgate lower trim, roof rails, and exhaust tailpipes. It quickly sold out once it was released. The last three digits of the Vehicle Identification Number are reproduced on a plaque inside the car, displayed on the centre console.
Only around 70 Audi RS6 Plus were imported to the UK. This car, numbered 266, has had four private owners and was once sold by Fontain Audi, the renowned specialists. Finished in silver, this RS6 Plus is remarkably original and also benefits from the optional Leather and Alcantara Recaro seats and Alcantara headlining, all of which is in exceptional order.
I have owned this stunning car for 18 months. It has a comprehensive history file (showing replacement gearbox at AMD technik in 2014, a full service at TTS Roadsports in 2018 and new Zimmerman front and rear discs and Brembo pads early this year), 2 keys and the special RS6 'Plus' handbooks. MOT until October 2019. It is in fantastic overall condition with only a few minor marks commensurate with age. The drivers seat bolster is virtually unmarked despite the 113k mileage. The car is standard apart from the change from DRC to coil over suspension.
A numbered limited edition 470bhp fast Audi, the RS6 Plus is a reworked and upgraded version of the RS6 and is predicted to become one of the definitive Audi collector cars.
