Widebody Audi RS6 From South Africa Wants To Be A DTM Racer

A few years ago, skier-turned-YouTuber Jon Olsson created an Audi RS6 inspired by DTM race cars. Fast forward to mid-2018 and a very similar RS6 has been created in a place you’d least expect it; South Africa.

Built by local tuning company Race!, this Nardo Gray RS6 has been adorned with a DarwinPro DTM style carbon fiber widebody aero kit. The package includes a pronounced front splitter and dual canards sitting just below the headlights.

Additionally, the super estate includes new side skirts as well as canards on the front doors and rear quarter panels. At the rear, there’s a roof spoiler, a tailgate spoiler, and a bold diffuser more fitting of a Pagani than an Audi.

The modifications don’t stop here. Race! has created a custom carbon fiber hood with a see-through engine cover that shows the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 in all of its glory. Elsewhere, there are a set of H&R Special Springs, an AWE Tuning airbox and intake and a complete Armytrix Automotive Weaponized exhaust system.

Mods, mods, and more mods.

The team at ADV.1 wheels then got their hands on the car and fitted a set of mismatched shoes. On one side, the car sits on a pair of AYDV7R wheels while on the other side, it features a pair of CS Series wheels, measuring 21×11 at the front and an equal 21×11 at the rear.

This is unquestionably the craziest Audi RS6 build we’ve come across. While the exterior is inevitably far too loud for some people, we actually like it. Driving with that splitter would be extremely nerve-racking, however.

      They’ve gone aero-crazy with this thing. At least they didn’t do the Liberty Walk style bolt on fenders that everyone else is doing. Awesome name, BTW!

    Hey tuner how can I go overboard with aerodynamics?

    Very cool. Made a bland looking car stand out! More cars need over the top DTM styling for the roads. What could go wrong?
