The performance wagon didn't need more aggression, but that hasn't stopped 1016 Industries from introducing this new kit.
1016 Industries has worked its magic on the Audi RS6 Avant, transforming the already menacing performance vehicle into a seriously sinister family hauler.
Audi's desirable go-faster wagon is not exactly subtle, but that hasn't stopped the US-based tuner from bestowing it with a few styling updates. Much like other creations from 1016 Industries, certain parts of this body kit are slightly over the top. You'll find a carbon fiber front lip ($3,950) that lends the RS6 Avant a touring car-style front fascia. Paired with the vented hood cap ($5,500), it's certainly more aggressive. We're not sure the flamboyant hood suits the car's sleeper persona, however. Still, it's not as vulgar as the RS6 created by German tuner G&B Design.
Along the side of the vehicle, you'll find carbon fiber side skirts ($4,300) that jut out and give the impression of a wider stance.
At the rear, 1016 Industries has provided the tailgate with a new spoiler ($3,200) and an OTT diffuser ($4,850). As per Carscoops, the RS6 wears gorgeous custom wheels from RDB in Los Angeles. Behind the deep dish, multi-spoke alloys hide blue-painted brake calipers, which pair beautifully with the Nardo Gray exterior paint.
The great thing about the carbon fiber kit is that owners don't need to alter the vehicle's existing body parts to fit the new pieces. Parts don't need to be cut into, which means the car can be converted back to stock configuration if sold later.
Buyers can also buy individual parts or purchase the body kit as a whole. The tuner says the entire kit costs around $20,000, but the configurator places it at $21,800.
Alternatively, buyers can purchase a fully kitted-out model from 1016 Industries for $142,995. As a reminder, a standard Audi RS6 Avant retails for $121,900 (excl. delivery fees). The kit is also available for the RS7 Sportback.
There's no mention of any engine upgrades, but the standard car is quick enough already. Powered by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8, the RS6 Avant has 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque at its disposal. The 0 to 60 mph sprint is dispatched in as little as 3.5 seconds.
"The 1016 Industries RS6 is an opportunity for our company to introduce something completely fresh to an underserved category of enthusiasts that love the four rings," said company founder Peter Northrop.
