It’s Actually Scary How Fast The Audi RS6 Can Be

The C7-generation Audi RS6 that we’ve all come to know and love will soon be replaced by an all-new model. While the new car will almost certainly be faster, more dynamic and more luxurious than the outgoing model, we still think the old one will long remain one of the ultimate family cars ever created.

From its blistering performance to its aggressive looks and plush cabin, it ticks all the boxes. The RS6 also happens to be an absolute favorite among tuning companies and can be easily tweaked to deliver truly monumental levels of performance, ensuring that power-hungry owners never get tired of it.

One particular RS6 was recently outfitted with a series of modifications that lift power from its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 to a monumental 1012 hp. This increase in power results in straight-line performance that’s assured to leave you in a state of shock.

AutoTopNL recently had the opportunity to test out the car and, during one acceleration run, managed to run the super estate up to 328 km/h (203 mph). Remarkably, it looked like the car still had some speed up its sleeve when the driver backed off.

During one run, the car recorded a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of just over 4 seconds. That’s not particularly impressive for an RS6 and a lack of traction could be to blame. However, it’s the vehicle’s speed beyond 100 km/h that really blows the mind.

Roughly 4.5 seconds after the car crosses into triple digits, it’s already doing 200 km/h (124 mph). Just 10 seconds later, it exceeds 300 km/h (186 mph).

    Only Audis’s I’ve ever liked. That & the fabled RS2! Dou u think the strange noise on the first run was why he backed off or was it possibly a scared passenger?

      I think it was some kind of whistle noise due to the high speed and the aerodynamics of the car.
