One of the absolute coolest cars to come from Audi in this century was the C6-generation Audi RS6. Not only did it look great, go like hell and have enough practicality to fit a normal family, it was powered by a twin-turbocharged V10. I’ll repeat that — a twin-turbocharged V10 in a family sedan/wagon(!). That’s brilliant, beautiful madness. I don’t want to stick around for those repair bills but I love that such a car ever existed.
In this new video from Jay Emm, we get to see an interesting version of this car. For starters, it’s modified and puts out a remarkable 650 horsepower, up from the standard car’s already massive 580 horsepower. It’s also a sedan, which is interesting as the C6 RS6 is typically seen as an Avant.
It’s nice to see it as a sedan, though, as it’s not often that you do. It also really makes the C6 Audi RS6 a sleeper, because most enthusiasts associate the RS6 with the Avant, so few enthusiasts will suspect the sedan version of being this monstrously powerful.
Especially when you consider that the ECU tune and Milltek exhaust help it to create that astonishing 650 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of torque. The exhaust also helps it sound incredible, though it’s also not hard to make a 5.2 liter V10 sound good. It probably sounded excellent with the stock exhaust, too.
Jay Emm seems to be impressed with the C6 Audi RS6 sedan. It’s not the best looking car in the world and its interior can be a bit boring (although its quality and ergonomics might have been Audi high-water marks) but it’s a very exciting one. Its engine is fantastic, its steering is good and its suspension does a decent job of managing comfort and compliance.
If you’re in Europe and in the market for a second-hand super sedan, it’s hard to beat the Audi RS6. Not only is it an absolute monster of a machine and can easily be tuned for more but it’s also the last RS6 sedan ever made. So check it out.
