The RS6 Avant isn’t just fast, it’s supercar fast thanks to a 591-horsepower (441-kilowatt) twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter mild-hybrid V8. But it spec in all-wheel-drive wagon comes with a supercar price.
The base model tips at $109,000, not including $995 in destination charges. But the entry-level RS6 Avant has the same speed characteristics, with 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds. The top speed is restricted to 155 mph but it climbs to 190 mph depending on packages and options.
What about colors. The Nardo Gray is offered free of charge. Everything else is a $595 add-on save for Sebring Black Crystal, which costs $1,075.
Selection of wheels. Two entire packages are offered here – the Black Optic package and the Carbon Optic package. Going carbon is more expensive, and in this particular case, it adds $6,350 to the price tag.
Comfort seats with an array of tech and performance packages gives a higher MSRP. Of those packages, prominent additions are the Driver Assistance package for $2,250, the Executive package for $2,500, and the Night Vision system for another $2,500. Going for the high-end Bang & Olufsen 3D sound system adds $4,900 to the price, but the big tamale is the Gray Ceramic Brake package for $8,900.
With all the other boxes checked for smaller options and accessories, we get to the final fully-loaded price of $141,320. Options total $31,325 and yes, the final price includes the aforementioned delivery charge. It’s still nearly $12,000 less than a base model Porsche Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo with less power. However, it matches very close – both in price and performance – to the Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon, of which a facelifted model was just revealed.
