Audi RS6 Avant upgraded by mcchip-dkr

Mcchip-dkr has developed a chip tuning kit for the Audi RS6 Avant. In its stock configuration, the twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter engine generates a more than impressive 560 HP (412 kW) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) which should be enough for most people but those who want even more power, mcchip-dkr has the solution through some electronic tweaks for the eight-cylinder engine.

Installing the bespoke chip is a process that takes four hours and will bump output of the motor to a massive 642 HP (472 kW) and a maximum torque of 847 Nm (624 lb-ft) channeled to the same quattro all-wheel drive system with help from an 8-speed tiptronic transmission. It should be mentioned the AWD setup encompasses a torque vectoring differential and in standard guise the RS6 Avant sprints to 62 mph (100 km/h) in only 3.9 seconds.

Mcchip-dkr hasn’t released any performance details but we remind you the stock car is electronically-capped to 155 mph (250 km/h). There’s also an optional dynamic package increasing the limiter to 174 mph (280 km/h) along with a dynamic plus package which raises the limiter even more to 190 mph (305 km/h).

The additional bump in power probably didn’t had a significant influence on the fuel consumption which stands at 9.8 liters / 100 km (24 mpg US) in the standard RS6 Avant.
