It is nice to see the return of the sport wagon. This white Audi RS6 built by Berlin based tuners AVUS Performance is a perfect example. As if a 580 HP Biturbo V10 with Quattro isn’t enough AVUS boosts the four ringed estate to 700 HP and restricts the top speed to preserve the tires.
Continued after the jump.
Thanks to a 70 mm exhaust and a reprogrammed ECU the V10 under the hood of this Audi estate is capable of running from 0-60 MPH in 3.9 seconds and will keep on pulling until the electronically limited top speed of 211.27 MPH in an attempt to keep the rubber doughnuts from overheating and risking catastrophic failure.
From the outside the only hint of this vehicles outstanding performance potential is a carbon fiber front lip and the lack of wheel gap between the wide white fenders and the 22” Sportec Mono 10 rims.
With its 580bhp and an impressive 650Nm ( 479.35 lb/ft) of torque the actual Audi RS6 is the perfect symbiosis of an estate and a super car.
For AVUS Performance, based in Berlin, that starting basis was not enough.
As the importer for Sportec products in Germany they equipped the RS6 with a new high performance exhaust system with a diameter of 70mm, racing catalysts and a new ECU software. The maximum power increased up to 700bhp and an astonishing 800Nm (589.97 lb/ft ) of torque are now tearing all 4 wheels.
The results are 0-60 in 3.9s, 0-120 in 12.1s and the RS6 is electronically limited at 211.27mph to not overstress the tires of the V10 biturbo. To get the power to the ground at best Avus Performance mounted a set of 22" wheels in the classic Sportec Mono 10 design.
Besides the better grip these have great impact to the overall look. The already good standard factory suspension with electronic settings was only slightly modified with lowering springs which help to lower the car by 40mm. The handling improves noticeable and the car gets much more agile. On the other hand it fits perfectly to the complete look of the car and makes sense in combination with all the other options. Last but not least a carbon front-lip and a rear diffusor are also offered and are the icing on the cake.
