We all know about the Audi RS6 Performance by now. It’s normally a twin-turbocharged V8 monster packed into the body of a five-door family luxury wagon. A perfectly stock RS6 can get from 0-60 mph in under four seconds and can even beat the famous Nissan GT-R in a quarter-mile drag race. Giving it that capability is a 605 hp twin-turbo 4.0 liter V8, eight-speed automatic and Quattro all-wheel drive. However, what happens when you pump the RS6 up to 700 hp and take it out on the open road? You’ll find out in this video.
In this latest POV video, AutoTopNL takes this 700 hp Audi RS6 Avant Performance out on the highway to see how it accelerates and if it can reach its claimed 320 km/h (198 mph). From a standstill, this RS6’s acceleration is possibly the most violent I’ve ever seen from a road car. I’ve seen insanely tuned cars before, but I don’t know if I’ve ever seen something send so much power to the wheels, have the tires hook up and fire off the line like this. There’s almost no wheel spin, just insane acceleration. It’s almost terrifying.
What’s even more impressive is how it reaches its top speed in almost frightening short time. In the video, you see the car hit over 310 km/h (192 mph) a couple of times and pretty easily. At that speed, other cars on the road simply fly past the windows as if they were standing still. It’s shocking, to be honest. What’s also incredibly impressive is how rock-solid stable the RS6 is at these speeds. There’s no shake in the steering wheel or vibration coming through. It’s just calm and smooth speed. It’s a real testament to how well engineered the RS6 is and how it can handle incredible speeds.
Check the video out, it’s flipping nuts.
