Audi RS6 AS by HPerformance features all the powerful characteristics of the iconic Audi model, but also boasts some new enhancements. They are due to the work done by the specialists at HPerformance, a company in based in Germany. The third generation Audi RS6 not only exudes more powerful image but also offers more horsepower.
First, the weight of the vehicle was reduced by about 200 lb, making the combined average fuel consumption beneath 10 liters. Then the tuners added HPerformance 70 mm double pipe exhaust system with two controllable exhaust valves. This system can be monitored optionally or pneumatically via an overpressure or electric ways using MMI. The result is astonishing sound.
2014 Audi RS6 Avant is the winter vehicle of the Swedish professional freeskier and alpine ski racer Jon Olsson. The car looks stunning and can be currently seen rolling around Europe. The Audi has incredible exterior design which is wrapped in white, black and gray camouflage.
Stertman Motorsport has worked their magic and gave this RS6 some extra love. What is featured here is Milltek exhaust and dumped suspension by H&R. More elements are to be featured; nonetheless Jon is revealing that this is the best car he has driven so far.
What will happen, if you transplant the 4 liters Audi A8 engine into the car body of its smaller brother A6 and improve the interior of the latter in the same time? The result of this surgical effort is called by the well sounding name Audi RS6 Avant 4.0 TFSI quattro „NEW“. Is it all? The answer to even this question is researched by the O.CT Team. You better believe it! Once more, a mega stunner comes from the development department of the Oberscheider Tuning GmbH Lustenau, Austria.
Sadly, if you live in the States, this is one super wagon that you won’t be able to park under your garage during this phase of your life.
In an email we received today from John Schilling, product communications manager for Audi North America, we were told that, the brand has “No plans on bringing the RS6 Avant here to the U.S.”.
Judging by its work output, the Audi RS 6 created by the Audi branch Quattro GmbH in Neckarsulm is the strongest variant out of A6. The corresponding station wagon by Audi is called Avant. But today the one who thinks that the “strongest variant judging by its work output” is not possible, is mistaken as long as there is such tuner as MTM. After the drastic power increase (“Rosskur” is for “power increase” in German and that is probably where the “R” in the car’s name MTM RS R 6 comes from), it is entirely wrong and irrespective to describe this segment as a family car, taking into account its strength of a wild bear with 759 hp and 912 Nm torque at the crankshaft. The right sound is almost automatically reached by stainless steel exhaust system with race catalyst including valves on two pipes that are certainly adjustable.
Thanks to the wheel and tyre combination of RS5 9×20 ET29 rims equipped with 275/35R20 tyres, the wolf in a lab’s skin begins to move and then is safely stopped by means of the Audi homemade ceramic braking system with discs of 420 mm in diameter. By the way, the MTM RS 6 R is capable of reaching the speed of 348 km/h. Finally, we should also mention a carbon front lip and a rear diffuser.
And yet, what can restore the unbeaten glory of the great „family car“? The outfit, of course! Again it was fostla.de, a specialist in premium foil wrapping from Hannover, that has perfectly led this Audi RS 6 R fully in anodized matt blue metallic PWF to the stage and drew another positive example in quantum leap in foiling instead of painting. The price for the modification of the outer skin comes up to 2,500 Euro, including 5% tinting of the front and back lights. Specialist’s work is a bit more expensive, but in any case, it is advisable to visit the garage of the self-appointed foiler round the corner. There is nothing against garages, after all, Microsoft also once started in a garage…
