It’s always jaw-dropping to see some of the power figures that tuners can get out of the Audi RS6 Avant. The 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 that powers the RS6 already makes 605 hp in its “Performance” spec, so it’s not as if the stock car is exactly slow. Also, at 605 hp, you might think that the engine is at the end of its limits. Then a tuner like Elmerhaus comes along and squeezes a whopping 780 hp out of it.
In this video from AutoTopNL, we get to see a POV review of the Elmerhaus RS6 and it’s a monster. But before we talk about the performance, let’s talk about its looks. Its deep metallic purple paint is almost like an eggplant color and it looks really good. That paint combined with the black accents makes it looks very menacing, especially at when the purple will almost look black. It’s very cool.
On the inside, it’s not too different from the standard Audi RS6, except for the fact that it has an Audi R8 steering wheel that’s been given some shift lights at the 12 o’clock position. Aside from that, it’s a pretty standard RS6 inside. Though, that’s not a bad thing. The Audi RS6 has a fantastic interior, even if it’s getting a bit old now.
One really unique bit, though, is the fire-extinguisher system that is controlled by a button where the cigarette lighter used to be. So in the case of a fire, press that button and a fire extinguisher in the trunk, hooked up to various lines, will put the fire out. Hopefully.
That might be necessary as well, as the engine has a water/methanol injection system and two monster turbochargers to make that much power. And it’s so ferociously powerful and fast that having a fire extinguisher is probably a good idea.
When you see how fast it is, it’s remarkable. Speed just effortless gains while the scenery so quickly disappears. However, it’s so smooth and stable that it almost doesn’t seem like it’s going that fast. The only real indicators are the Millennium-Falcon-at-light-speed scenery and the insanely loud exhaust note. Check it out.
