German tuner MTM has always been one of the most successful Audi tuners in the world, so when news comes out that it is hard at work on another program, we all stand up and wait for the project to finish.
Well, the latest one is done and its got a pretty intense engine upgrade, to say the least. This is the Audi RS6 Avant and, while it doesn’t inspire the kind of break-neck power and fancy aesthetics that seemingly all station wagons carry with them, MTM made sure that this RS6 Avant packs a wallop of an engine upgrade.
The engine remains the same, which is to say that the RS6 Avant is still powered by a 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V-8 engine, but MTM went to work on tuning it. This tune resulted in an increased output of 722 horsepower and 652 pound-feet of torque — a dramatic increase from the RS6 Avant’s standard output of 560 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. With this significant upgrade in tow, the RS6 Avant is now capable of hitting 62 mph in 3.3 seconds, 124 mph in 11.3 seconds and a top speed of 211 mph.
At the corners, the RS6 carries MTM 20-inch bimoto wheels wrapped in 285/35ZR20 Michelin Pilot Supersport rubber. Up front, this hopped up wagon features an MTM-exclusive Brembo monobloc six-piston braking system with 405-by-36 mm (15.9-by-1.4-inch) discs.
This massive engine modification program does come at a cost with MTM charging €13,751.80 ($18,504.42) for the treat of getting the RS6 Avant’s output up to the 700-horsepower range.
