VIDEO: Here’s MTM’s Finished Audi RS6 Avant Tribute Edition

There are only 25 Audi RS6 Avant Tribute Editions in the U.S. and one of them was bought and sent straight to the people at MTM for some work. When MTM got their hands on it, they built a car that will surely make their client very happy. While MTM has documented the build since it started, they’ve released a video of the finished product and it looks fantastic.

 

From the outside, the MTM-tuned Audi RS6 Avant Tribute Edition looks OEM+, meaning that it looks mostly stock, just with a handful of minor modifications. However, there’s actually quite a lot of work done to it, it’s all just been done tastefully.

 

On the outside, the wheels are still stock and the few body modifications are subtle, such as the OEM aluminum optic trim bits, OEM black mirror caps and Maxton aero kit. It also has an MTM lowering kit, though, and that does wonders for its stance.

 

Under the hood, the 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 also has an MTM M-Cantronic II tune, which bumps the power from 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque to a whipping 722 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of torque. So it should be an absolute monster. Even better than the power, though, is the noise. The MTM Audi RS6 Avant was also given an Akrapovic cat-back exhaust, which gives it an incredible growl.

 

The MTM-tuned Audi RS6 Avant Tribute Edition looks and sounds fantastic, especially in the ultra-rare Nogaro Blue. We love that it looks mostly stock and has the OEM+ style, as it makes it a total sleeper. Most people won’t notice that it’s any different from a standard RS6 Avant and yet its 722 horsepower will allow it to lunch supercars with ease. This is the sort of build we like; not too flashy, without only a handful of meaningful mods that actually make a difference in the way it drives.

I've been in love with cars since I was a kid, specifically German cars. Now I get to drive them talk about them on the internet.
