Tuned and ready to deliver!

The Audi RS6 Avant is a 605-horsepower machine of epic proportions. Unfortunately, the RS6 Avant isn’t available in the U.S. That leaves us in a bit of an emotional pickle when we see videos like this. For the record, the Audi RS6 in this video isn’t your standard RS6. It’s been tuned to produce a staggering 1,012 horsepower, and as you might expect, it showed out in ways that only a 1,012 horsepower Audi RS6 can.

In case you’re wondering, the Klasen Audi RS6 Avant has almost two times the power of the standard Audi RS6 Avant. The latter produces 605 horsepower while the tuned version produces 1,012 horsepower. That’s 407 horsepower more than the standard RS6 Avant. So how fast does that make the Klasen RS6 Avant? For that, you need to watch this video released by AutoTopNL.

The video doesn’t show a lot of the Audi RS6 Avant. We only get a few seconds looking at the rear section of the RS6 Avant before it blasts off on its run. From there, the only thing we can see is the vehicle’s instrument cluster, which is really all we need to see what kind of madness this souped-up wagon is capable of.

For instance, the modified RS6 Avant takes under four seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph.

Likewise, it only needs around nine seconds to hit 124 mph and under 19 seconds to go from 0 to 186 mph.

The modified RS6 doesn’t just stop there, either. Once the RS6’s acceleration run was timed, the high-performance people mover turned its attention towards making a top speed run, and it didn’t disappoint.

In the second run, the RS6 Avant manages to clock a top speed of 203 mph, which is a hell of a lot more than what a lot of today’s supercars are capable of. Consider, too, that the RS6 isn’t a svelte coupe that’s streamlined for top speed runs like some supercars. The RS6 is a station wagon that can double as a weekend ride to the supermarket or your kid’s soccer practice. It’s not the first car you’d think of when you’re thinking about power and performance, but it’s not going to apologize for what it’s capable of, either.

The Klasen Audi RS6 Avant is a 1,012-horsepower monster. It’s a pity that we don’t have a car like it here in the U.S. It would’ve been fun to see how it can handle America’s roads.
