      After a few google searches, it is named Audi Emerald Green Mica. Emerald changed over the years. With a cream interior, it was gorgeous IMO.

      Another vote for Goodwood. It is the most traditional British Racing Green type color. Fast Audi estates are very popular in the UK so it makes sense that this color would work well. It’s also the most like the green on E36 BMW M3 GT that I love.

      If you wanted to go a totally different green route, then my favorite Porsche 911 green is a rare color called Granite Green or Felsengruen seen on the Carrera SC in the late 1980s. It’s a gray/green color. Since gray really is the stereotypical color for an Audi, I like the idea of a gray/green RS6. Guaranteed you won’t see another. Not sure if Audi will do all VAG colors or not.

      As cool as the solid green colors are I don't think I would want to own a car in those colors. The RS6 is going to have some damn cool surfacing that is going to make a metallic green color more interesting to look at as the ownership period moves forward. I love walking around my car and finding new angles where the light it's some surface and makes the metallic really pop and dance around the car.


      My car wouldn't be as interesting to look at IMO. At least to me, coming from someone who sees it every day.

      Assuming it is a normal color selection, I would do this interior:


      If I would have to go Exclusive for the color, I will go black. For '19 it was 5200 bucks to get an Exclusive interior color.

      I just dont like it that much to do it.

      Love me some Montana.

      Just not on this car. I feel this car is better suited with a darker, rich green.

      I don't think the RS6 can look bad in any green, lol!

      Some type of matte dark green with the cognac or grey interior would be sick AF

      I would personally be looking in the blue catalog, but green will do.

      I think the RS6 deserves a brash color. While you will be a distinguished gentleman with a forest green shade, why not go all out.

      Verde alceo

      Those were nearly all Emerald Green with Ecru leather.

      My vote is for Goodwood Green with cinnamon or Tuscan brown leather + european delivery. Here's the C5 Audi S6 Avant for sale ad that originally turned me on to that color.

      Goodwood is interesting. It's extremely close to the British Racing Green Mazda used with my Miata. Here's the problem (for me) - in the worst light levels (noon sun), it looks fantastic. In almost all other light levels, it's quite dark and lifeless. Here's what I mean:

      My preference is exactly the opposite. During harsh sunlight conditions ( the absolute worst to photograph a car in) it looks kinda blah to me or it could just be the particular picture you chose. But at dusk or on a cloudy day it looks moody as hell (in a good way). Again, very British looking, which I love. Then again I also like dark greens like Bentley’s Midnight Emerald. Goodwood Green seems to be very much like Bentley’s Barnato Green.

      I voted Goodwood.

      My first car was a Golf III in sequoia green and then I got a Fresco green Passat B5.5. I wouldn't suggest either for the RS6. Personally Id go something crazy like Glut orange.

      Goodwood rocks.

      My vote? Midnight Emerald Green from a Bentley CGT (1st choose) or Cumbrian Green. Midnight Emerald is pretty cool in person.
