Counterpoint: The new Audi RS6 looks properly wicked

Rejoice ye of longroof faith. For your forbidden king has been granted reprieve in the kingdom of crossovervania.

The 2020 Audi RS6 Avant is coming to America. Kamil already told you about the numbers. I’m here to tell you that he’s wrong about the looks.

This is one damn fine looking machine. Is it perfect? No. I’m not in love with the rear bumper or the treatment around the exhaust. The rest of it though, is *kisses fingers*.

While I love the idea of understated vehicular muscle, I think a little bit of showoff style is appropriate as well. You can only achieve so much of that with a wagon, and I believe that Audi has hit most of its marks with the RS6 Avant.

Take a gander at the profile shot above. The stance is powerful. You can see the slightly boxed fenders even from this angle. I’d like a bit more meat on the tires, but that’s easily solved with new wheels and tires, assuming you can clear the brakes. The lines of the glass form a sharp point that helps accentuate the long lovely roof. And the character line flows from tip to tail as a stout bit of design that serves to let you know this wagon isn’t to be trifled with.

I can’t afford this car. I’m not sure how many people will buy this car. I’m fucking thrilled that this car is coming to America. Hopefully… to be loved.

Audi is working hard to make sure that’s the case. Check out the video below, and gird thy goosebumps:
