VIDEO: Check out this Drag Race from ABT with three Audi RS6 Avants

If you’re like us, you can’t get enough of the Audi RS6 Avant, either. Its stunning good looks, monster power and everyday-usability make the RS6 one of the very coolest cars on the market. ABT Sportsline isn’t a company known for leaving well enough alone, though. So they’ve of course modified the RS6 in various different ways. In this new video, we get to see three different RS6s drag race to see how those mods work.

 

The first one we see in the video is one with stock power levels. So its 4.0 liter twin-turbocharged V8 makes 600 PS (591 hp) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. No one really needs more power than that but ABT adds it anyway.

 

So the next car has a whopping 700 PS (690 hp) and an astonishing 880 Nm (649 lb-ft) of torque. Obviously, this Audi RS6 Avant has been tuned by ABT Sportsline, which is why it’s in the video.

 

Lastly, we take a look at the most intense, full-beans RS6 that ABT has to offer. That gives it 740 PS (729 hp) and a simply ridiculous 920 Nm (678 lb-ft) of torque.

 

The three cars get individually drag raced by Daniel Abt himself to see just how much faster the ABT-tuned cars are. The cars go through three tests; 0-100 km/h (62 mph), 0-200 km/h (124 mph) and a drag race. First up is the RS6 with standard power and it took 3.7 seconds to hit 100 km/h. As for the 0-200 km/h test, it took around 12.2 seconds to do.

 

Next up was the middle-man RS6, the one with only “mild” modifications. That car hit 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds, showing that the power upgrades really made a difference. The run to 200 km/h happened in about the eleven-second range, which is crazy quick.

 

Lastly, it was the turn of the full-own ABT Audi RS6 Avant, with its mighty power. It actually shaved less than a tenth off the 0-100 km/h time, doing in in the high 3.2 second-range. It also shaved some time off the 0-200 km/h run, doing it in 10.5 seconds, which is seriously impressive.

 

Obviously, the last car is the fastest in a quarter-mile drag race but it’s still cool to see. What’s even better to see is just how much faster an RS6 can be made. The standard Audi RS6 Avant is a monster of a car and one that we can’t wait to test out. However, it’s clear that more power and more performance are both easily achievable.

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.
