Just a little bit of warning: if you love your tuning builds clean, this Nardo Gray Audi RS6 Avant will probably turn you off. While, clearly, some parts of this build were overdone, the whole thing actually looks quite good. The selection of parts – from what we can see from the photographs – is top notch. The quantity of them and their placement, on the other hand, is a completely different ballgame.
The outgoing Audi RS6 Avant is a fine beast of a machine to begin with. This-generation of the Audi RS6 utilizes a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine which delivers 605 horsepower and 700Nm of torque. Thanks to the Quattro all-wheel-drive system, it will sprint from 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in just 3.9 seconds. The top speed is limited to 250 km/h (155.3 mph). Furthermore, if you opt for the optional Dynamic or Dynamic Plus package, this top speed is increased to respectively 280 km/h (174.0 mph) or 305 km/h (189.5 mph).
Not a bad starting point for an aftermarket build.
This particular Nardo gray Audi RS6 Avant comes from Race!, a tuning company out of South Africa. Well-known for their work in the world of high-performance automobiles, these guys never cease to amaze us. The same end result is what best describes this build.
The build began with the Audi RS6 Avant receiving a complete carbon fiber widebody kit. It consists of a front time-attack lip spoiler, a set of wider front fenders, side skirts, rear widened fenders, a complete rear diffuser setup and a huge rear trunk wing/spoiler thingie, joined by a bottom spoiler, right below the boot’s rear window placement that serves to provide additional downforce. The vehicle is also equipped with canards literally all over the place. In our opinion, the owner could of went without these. Their removal would clean up the car so much, get rid of that too busy feeling and give the vehicle a much cleaner and more aggressive look.
When these parts were installed, the tuner went on to install an exposed carbon fiber bonnet, revealing the mighty 4.0 Liter V8 engine below. Furthermore, the vehicle features a set of H&R Special Springs, an AWE Tuning airbox & intake and a complete Armytrix Automotive Weaponized exhaust system. As you will see from the video below, the rumble coming out of those exhaust pipes in the rear is impressive, to say the least.
Finally, the tuner added a set of ADV7R Directional Track Spec CS Series forged wheels. These lightweight wheels come sized 22×11 in the front and 22×11 in the rear. The wheels feature a Matte Black finish, joined by the vehicle pin-stripe matching the ADV.1 logo, giving the wheels that perfect finishing touch. The wheels are sourced with a completely Exposed Titanium Hardware option, finished in the same Matte Black finish as the wheels themselves.
