Classic Car Overview

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys Essen event, 27 March 2020.
40,000 - 60,000

  • One of only 97 S6 Plus saloons built
  • Fitted with Audis renowned 4.2-litre V-8, producing 322 bhp

The Audi S6 Plus was the first product developed by Audis high-performance subsidiary, quattro GmbH, and was offered from June 1996 to October 1997. The changes that the Plus denoted were significant: Under the bonnet, the 2.2-litre turbocharged five-cylinder engine from the standard S6 was replaced by a 32-valve 4.2-litre V-8 engine, whilst the suspension geometry was lowered and track widened for more mechanical grip. A more powerful braking setup was used to cope with the extra power, and as it was targeted purely as a drivers car, it was only available with a six-speed manual gearbox.

This is one of the 97 saloon variants that were produced and is likely to be one of very few specified in the rare colour of Nogaro Blue with black leather and matching Alcantara blue seat insets. It also benefits from the full S6 Plus carbon-fibre trim set, 17-inch Avus alloy wheels, electric sunroof, cell phone, and memory seats.

According to the consignor, the car was gifted by Audi to the Spanish newspaper El Mundo in return for advertising space and was used by their former CEO. Afterwards, it was purchased by the Marquess of Antella. With the Marquess, the engine was rebuilt by quattro Gmbh in 2005, and the car has recently received a repaint in its original Nogaro Blue and been serviced. Still capable of holding its own amongst far more modern super saloons, this car is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner.

  • Eine von nur 97 S6 Plus Limousinen
  • Ausgerstet mit Audis angesehenem 4,2 Liter V-8 mit 326 PS

Der von 1996 bis 1997 angebotene Audi S6 Plus ist das erste Produkt von Audis High Performance Arm quattro GmbH. Die in der Plus -Variante umgesetzten Verbesserungen waren dabei signifikant: so musste der serienm ige 2,2 Liter Turbo-Fnfzylinder des S6 dem 32-Ventil 4,2-Liter V8 weichen, das Fahrwerk wurde tiefergelegt sowie die Spur fr noch besseren Grip verbreitert. Eine leistungsst rkere Bremsanlage sollte der deutlich gestiegenen Leistung Einhalt gebieten. Den als Fahrerauto positionierten S6 Plus gab es nur mit einem Sechsgang-Handschaltgetriebe.

Dieses Exemplar ist eine von 97 hergestellten Limousinen und eines von sch tzungsweise nur wenigen in nogaroblau mit Memorysitzen in schwarzem Leder mit passenden Alcantara-Eins tzen in blau. Dieser Wagen verfgt ber das komplette S6 Plus Carbon-Set, 17-Zoll Avus Alufelgen, ein elektrisches Schiebedach und ein zeitgen ssisches Autotelefon.

Nach Aussage des Einlieferers wurde dieses Fahrzeug der spanischen Tageszeitung El Mundo als Gegenleistung fr Anzeigenfl che bergeben und vom ehemaligen Gesch ftsfhrer bewegt. Anschlie end geh rte es dem Marquis von Antella, in dessen Besitz der Motor 2005 bei der quattro GmbH berholt wurde. Krzlich wurde das Fahrzeug im Originalfarbton nogaroblau neulackiert und gewartet. Noch heute kann sich der S6 Plus auch unter modernen Performance-Limousinen behaupten, und so ist dieses Exemplar bereit fr Fahrspa mit einem neuen Besitzer.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/es20.
