As car enthusiasts, you’ve probably had this very discussion before with your friends: how would you build your dream car out of different cars’ parts? As it turns out, 2,000 car enthusiasts were asked that very question and the general consensus was this — an Audi RS6 Avant with Aston Martin styling and a plug-in hybrid powertrain.
According to Top Gear, the car fans would Frankenstein out of other cars’ parts would be mostly an Audi RS6 Avant on the outside, except, from the A-pillar forward, its styling would be borrowed from an Aston Martin DBS. It’s hard to argue that, really, as the DBS is one of the sexiest cars on sale. Additionally, it would also get Porsche GT3 RS-style fender flares, giving it an even more aggressive look.
So it’s clear that, in terms of styling, fans want sexy supercar looks with wagon practicality. Again, hard to argue that.
Under the hood, it seems as if fans also want a ton of power but, surprisingly, also some efficiency. You’d imagine that fans might want something a bit more traditional; a big, stonking V8 or maybe even the Audi R8’s 5.2 liter naturally-aspirated V10. Instead, they actually want a plug-in hybrid, which is not only surprising but also refreshing. It’s cool to see fans embracing the idea of hybrid performance cars and, honestly, it would be the right choice; power and efficiency.
Now, if only someone has the money and capability, as well as a bit of bravery, they can actually make such a car come true. Buy an Audi RS6 Avant, find an Aston Martin DBS with a wrecked rear end, borrow the latter car’s face and add hybrid power to the RS6’s existing twin-turbocharged V8. It sounds easy when we say it like that but it would be incredibly difficult to do. Still, they’d technically have the most desirable car in the world.
