There Are Already Used Audi RS 6 Avants For Sale In The US

How is this possible? Canadian dealers are selling new Audi RS 6 Avants at auction to the US market


  • The RS 6 is the ultimate wagon and Audi RS product.

  • It was launched only a few months ago.

  • If you can’t wait for a new one, there are a few “used” ones for sale.


New and used car dealerships are often scrutinized for various fees and surcharges they tack on to hot new products. In the past, anticipated new cars like the Honda Civic Type R and C8 Chevrolet Corvette have seen “market adjustment” fees added to their MSRPs. In this case, it’s Canadian dealers “buying” new Audi RS 6 wagons and sending them to the US.

The US car market is far greater than the Canadian one and the US dollar is stronger than Canada’s, these are not secrets. What might be news is that Audi decided to launch the sublime RS 6 Avant in Canada ahead of the US creating something of a demand south of the border.

According to Road & Track, this demand has enticed Canadian dealers to sell allotments of the desirable wagon at auction in the US. Pricing in Canada starts at $120,400 and based on the listings shared in the source story, US auction sale prices are probably not that far off the Canadian MSRP, in US Greenbacks.

This is not an unusual practice, especially for luxury car brands. If you live in Canada, you no longer need to wonder why you’ve only seen one, or none, in your area so far.
