THE AUDI RS6

The German auto manufacturers have had a fascination with the super sedan category for decades. Mercedes with its 6.3 and 6.9 and BMW with the legendary M5 proved that a properly tuned sedan could rival many less practical super cars. These properly expensive sedans catered to Autoban cruising executives but developed a following in other markets where speed limits still apply. Audi, Germany's third largest premium sport sedan manufacturer, was the last to enter the battle for sedan supremacy but when they delivered the RS6 in 2002, they blew right by their competition.

Based on the successful A6 sedan the RS6 displayed some of Audi's most advanced technology. The heart of the RS6 was the 4.2 liter, 40 valve, aluminum V8. This four cam beast was fed by twin turbochargers producing 450bhp at 5,700rpm. A five speed Tiptronic ZF transmission fed the power to the Torsen T-2 Quattro all-wheel drive system. The supreme traction of the system made for a 0-60mph time of just 4.6 seconds – not bad for a 4000+ pound luxury sedan.

The chassis features "Dynamic Ride Control" which could automatically tune the suspension for comfort and performance. Wheels were 18" across and sleeved with special, Pirelli P-Zero Rosso rubber. The interior is full Audi sport luxury—leather trimmed seats with embossed RS6 details and every power option imaginable with a premium Bose stereo to top it off.

Only about 1000 of these ultra-exclusive sedans made it to the US during their one-year only availability. Because of their comfort and practicality, most of those racked up many thousands of miles making low mileage examples highly sought after.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This superb and ultra-low mileage example covered less than 17,000 miles prior to Fran Grayson purchasing the car in 2010. Fran was ever aware of the latest high performance machine and informed the local Audi agent that he wanted a low mileage example. When the dealer located this car, Fran immediately bought it.

Finished in striking black over black, this RS6 is in wonderful condition. Driven only about 4,000 miles during his ownership, he pampered the car. Only the driver's seat shows any signs that the car has been used at all – and even then only slightly.

Fran, never satisfied with good enough, had the Audi mildly tuned by a noted Audi tuning specialist. Remapping the engine management software bumped the power to 550hp. More recently, a full belt service has been performed and receipts are included.

Today it is extremely difficult to find a low mileage RS6. To find one that has had only two responsible owners and is in near showroom condition is nearly impossible. To say this is great opportunity to acquire the definitive German super sedan of the 2000s is an understatement.
