Now that we’re all focused on the brand-new Audi RS6 Avant, it seems as if the previous-generation car has been a bit forgotten. Prior to this newest RS6, the previous-gen car was considered one of the coolest performance machines on the market. So there’s obviously still something to love about it. But if you own the last-gen car and the new one has you itching for an upgrade, maybe you can get away with just upgrade your exhaust. If that’s the case, a Milltek system, like the one seen in this new video, could do the trick.
In this new video from AutoTopNL, we get to take a look at a C7-gen Audi RS6 Avant with a Milltek exhaust and it sounds pretty exciting. From outside the car, the new exhaust gives the older RS6 a much more aggressive growl. It’s angry and loud and filled with pops and bangs. While the stock car sounds pretty great on its own, this Milltek unit really opens it up.
From inside the car, there’s so much more drama. It’s so much louder and more aggressive and downshifts fire off with a thunder clap. It’s pretty awesome, actually, and will make the car that much more enjoyable to drive on a daily basis.
While we don’t know if this specific Audi RS6 Avant has any power upgrades over the standard but it doesn’t really need any. The specific car in this video is an Audi RS6 Avant Performance, which already packs a whopping 605 hp from its 4.0 liter twin-turbocharged V8 and all of that fury is sent through an eight-speed auto to all four wheels. Even though it’s old, it still nails 60 mph in just over three seconds and can top out at almost 200 mph.
So it might not be the newest version of the car or the hottest performance car on the market but it’s still plenty fast and, especially with a Milltek exhaust, still sounds great, too.
