MTM Audi RS6 Avant Grasps Bugatti Veyron Levels Of Power


The latest-generation C8 Audi RS6 Avant is a phenomenal machine, now available to order in the United States starting from $109,000. It is powered by a 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 engine, good for 591 HP (600 PS) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque.

Floor the throttle and you’ll be doing 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.5 seconds, before maxing out at 190 mph (305 km/h) with Ceramic brakes, or 174 mph (280 km/h) otherwise.

While all that sounds great to just about every car enthusiast out there, there are some people who prefer to squeeze even more power from Audi Sport models, and tuner MTM has just the thing.

Their power kit can take the German wagon all the way to 1,001 horses and 922 lb-ft (1,250 Nm) of torque, in exchange for roughly $44,000. By the way, those are the exact performance figures of the original Bugatti Veyron 16.4, except coming from a 4.0-liter V8 rather than an 8.0-liter W16.

The video below will give you a small taste of what the MTM RS6 Avant is capable of in a straight line, with the driver performing an off-the-line launch, as well as a high speed run all the way to 207 mph (333 km/h).

According to the GPS unit that was measuring the car’s performance, this modded family wagon hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.79 seconds, meaning 60 mph probably took even less – the Veyron 16.4 needed 2.5 seconds to hit 62 mph, in case you were wondering.

Would you spend the extra money on making your 2021 Audi RS6 even faster, or would its stock configuration suffice?
