The new Audi RS 6 GT will be limited to 660 units worldwide, with 20 units coming to Australia.

Audi’s RS 6 high-performance wagon is about to undergo significant changes as it adopts plug-in and full-EV powertrains for the next generation. However, before the transition, Audi presents the Audi RS 6 GT, a limited-run ultimate iteration of the current V8-powered Audi RS 6. Only 660 units will be built.

The Audi RS 6 GT packs a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine, generating 621kW and 850Nm of torque. This powertrain, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and RS-specific quattro all-wheel drive system, propels the RS 6 GT from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.3 seconds.

Enhanced performance is complemented by Audi’s bespoke suspension setup, featuring a new coilover system with adjustable dampers and stiffer anti-roll bars. The GT sits 10mm lower than a standard RS 6, offering a more direct road feel.

Externally, the RS 6 GT boasts bespoke carbon fibre elements, including the bonnet, front wings, and rear bumper with an aggressive diffuser insert. Notably, it features a large rear wing and unique 22-inch wheels, paying homage to Audi’s high-performance models from the nineties.

Inside, the Audi RS 6 GT showcases Dinamica material across the doors, dash, and seats, with carbon fibre-backed bucket seats finished in black leather and Dynamica. The interior decor trims are also available in Dinamica or unlacquered carbon fibre.

This limited-run model marks the end of the current RS 6 line, paving the way for Audi’s all-electric RS 6 e-tron. Meanwhile, Audi plans to introduce a combustion-powered RS 7 Avant with a plug-in hybrid powertrain in late 2025 or early 2026, joining the ranks of high-performance plug-in hybrid wagons.
