The Appeal 

If you’re a dog lover looking for a commodious estate, prepare to invest in a dog seatbelt. The C5 RS6 is the ultimate dog wagon and load lugger. And it is brutally, extraordinarily quick. 
There were pretenders from Mercedes-Benz and BMW, but the C5 RS6 was the original supercar-bating five door. The stats tell their own story: Audi’s superb 4.2litre V8 delivering 450bhp and 60mph from standstill in 4.5secs.
With all that capability, when you’re searching for one of the few hundred RHD C5 Avants that reached these shores, you want the reassurance of good maintenance. A recent extensive engine-out mechanical overhaul ensures this low mileage RS6 has exactly that. 
Finished in smart dark blue metallic with a black leather interior, this well specified C5 is pleasingly standard. A long MOT and just four registered keepers from new add to the impression of a well kept car.
