One car that we don't get here in the States is the Audi RS6 Avant.
If you ask me, it's a bit criminal because it's a brilliant machine. BUT, if you're Audi of America and subscribe to the belief that wagons don't sell, you ship us the RS7. Not a bad trade, I must admit.
If you've followed Audi's product development with its RS cars over the years, it's not uncommon that before it goes out of production for the company to offer a final farewell in form of the Plus-badged models.
