That UrS6 Avant from last week’s grab bag succeeded in capturing our imagination

So, here’s some more of it. We’ve always had a soft spot for the UrS4 and UrS6, and this one’s no exception.

We understand the car belongs to the founder of Audizine. Well played, sir— that is an exceptionally good-looking Audi.

The Audi UrS4 and the Audi UrS6 were the original names given to what would become the Audi S4 and Audi S6, respectively. The UrS4 was made between the years of 1992 and 1997. The UrS6 was made between the years of 1995 and 1997. Both of the automobiles came with 227 horsepower 2.2 liter five cylinder configurations complete with intercoolers and turbocharging. On the European continent, there were V8 powered versions of both models available.

The “Ur” prefix is derived from the German language to designate an “original” make. The prefix was adopted by car lovers around the world in reference to the original Audi Quattro, which was produced between the years of 1980 and 1991. The term is now also employed to designate the original S4 and S6 cars as a means of differentiating them from later models that used the same name.

Since the early ‘90s, Audi has utilized the S letter to signify its high performance production vehicles. The S4 was a higher performing version of the Audi 100 saloon vehicle, which was initially known as the Audi 100 S4. It was luxuriously designed and featured a lot of equipment as part of its design that was merely optional on most Audi vehicles (source).

  4. I own one exactly like this but with 19inch BBC rims. Suites the look of the S6. This car turns a lot of heads and people mistake it for a new model. Very hard to find these days. Great pictures!
