Imola Yellow 2003 Audi RS6

Well, if it’s not evident already, you know why this one is here. First off, it’s one of just about 1,200 RS6s imported. But the vast majority of those are black, gray, or blue. A little over a year ago I took a look at a rare one that wasn’t – one of five Polar White examples. But in terms of rarity, this one is 250% less likely to be seen. It’s one of a claimed two Imola Yellow examples sold in the US. Some people claim color doesn’t matter, but let’s be honest – here, it does.

So you probably either love or hate the color. Personally, I don’t think Imola Yellow works quite as well on big-body cars as it does on, say, the TT. And, in a lot of ways, the color defies the whole point of the Q-Ship nature of the RS6. But condition and rarity are king in these cars, and this one might be one of the rarest out there. Bids have been relatively subdued, with the auction ending soon and still well below $20,000. Unfortunately the pictures don’t seem to do the car justice, with low-resolution images leaving an incomplete story. We’re not likely to see the reserve broken on this auction, but I’m curious as to whether you think the color adds or detracts from the value here!

  1. The poor quality pictures really wash out the color, it looks more like Brilliant Yellow, which is a pale metallic yellow. The Imola Yellow I am accustomed to seeing is a more deep yellow, like in the picture of this car’s door jam. otherwise, the photos really do not flatter the car.

  2. @Christian – I’m pretty sure Brilliant Yellow isn’t metallic? See: https://germancarsforsaleblog.com/brilliant-yellow-1997-audi-s6-4-2-avant/

  3. Ah, you are right. I was thinking all those rare “cool shades” colors they offered in the late 90s/early 2000s were metallic, like Pelican blue.

  4. These, along with the e39 M5 and W211 e55 were the German super sedans that really took performance to the next level compared to their predecessors. While the M5 and E55 are considered pretty reliable for German performance sedans the Audi is the complete opposite. You need deep pockets or a good warranty to own one. I had the simpler S6 avant many years ago and that car was frustratingly unreliable. I I would not touch an RS6 with a 10 foot pole. That’s a shame as they are such cool cars.

  5. Ive loved every RS car ever made. The only time I was ever near one of these it had such an intoxicating exhaust rumble, it left a lasting impression. I would love to have this car but I’ve also made other bad life choices.
