VIDEO: 1,000 HP MTM-Tuned Audi RS6 Avant hits 219 MPH

At the moment, it seems as if MTM is the king of tuned RS6 Avants. No tuning company has put out as many tunes for Audi’s latest fast wagon as MTM has and each time we see a new MTM RS6, it gets even crazier than before. This latest one pumps out an absolutely mega 1,001 horsepower and in this video from AutoTopNL we get to see it easily break the 200 mph barrier.

 

The first thing you notice is that the MTM-tuned Audi RS6 Avant looks shockingly tame. It’s been modified on the outside, of course, with some very handsome looking MTM wheels and some vinyl graphics, but it doesn’t look like a car that has 1,001 horsepower.

 

Step inside, though and that changes. Its Recaro fixed carbon fiber-backed racing bucket seats look extreme, with their limited padding and red/black color scheme. Although, aside from the admittedly wild looking seats, its cabin is pretty much the same as a standard RS6.

The power isn’t the same, though. This Audi RS6 Avant is an absolute monster of a machine. Once out on the Autobahn, the RS6 in this video is able to reach 300 km/h (186 mph) in an almost shockingly little amount of time. The ease at which it hits insane speeds is almost frightening. Within seconds, it’s able to get to 354 km/h (219 mph), which is a lot faster than standard car.

 

Even among heavily tuned cars, 219 mph seemed almost impossible just a few years ago. Now, you can achieve that in a five-door luxury wagon that can also be used to go get groceries and take kids to school and do so in supreme comfort. While just cruising around, the MTM Audi RS6 Avant is quiet, comfortable and civilized, so it can easily be used as a daily driver. Open the taps, though, and it will embarrass even the fastest of supercars.

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.
