Tuned Audi RS6 Avant goes on a mountain ride to the Alps
Auditography’s latest six-minute video stars an Audi RS6 Avant C8 that received a massive performance upgrade by MTM and is now ready to conquer any elevation.
Straight from the factory, the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 churns out 600 PS (592 hp / 441 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. Replacing a slew of components with MTM-picked parts and tuning the ECU culminates in 1,015 PS (1,001 hp / 746 kW) and 1,250 Nm (920 lb-ft) hitting the wheels.
As a consequence, the German family hauler needs 2.9 seconds to hit 100 km/h (62 mph), shaving 0.7 seconds off the standard sprint time. Getting from standstill to 200 km/h (124 mph) is a matter of mere 8.6 seconds, and the top speed now lies at 350 km/h (217 mph), rather than the usual 305 km/h (189.5 mph).
The same upgrade kit is compatible with all other Audi cars equipped with this engine model, including the RS7 and the RS Q8. Of course, the asking price of U.S. $43,599 buys you a premium car, so the call’s yours.
