Audi Honors Its Legendary 90 IMSA Racer With The RS6 GTO Tribute Concept

Last month, Audi kicked off its “40 Years Of Quattro” celebration that marked four decades since the initial unveiling of the now-legendary Quattro at the 1980 Geneva Motor Show. Alongside the release of a special edition commemorative TT RS, the German brand has now revealed the next phase in its year-long anniversary festivities with the debut of the retro-themed RS6 GTO concept.

Starting with Audi’s RS 6 Avant, the 591hp twin-turbo V8 wagon is modeled after the Audi 90 IMSA GTO race car piloted by Hans-Joachim Stuck. As such, the Gran Turismo Omologata-spec RS6 gets custom widened bodywork with a one-off front fascia, front spoiler, and grille arrangement, a rear wing, solid wheel covers, exhausts exiting from the car’s side skirts, and a modernized version of the IMSA racer’s livery. Designed and executed by a team of apprentices at Audi’s assembly plant in Neckarsulm, the RS6 GTO has also been treated to a stripped-down, race-ready interior complete with a full roll cage, side-window netting, and carbon fiber-shelled Recaro racing bucket seats with four-point harnesses.
