The result is a jaw-dropping 1,001 horsepower and 921 pound-feet (1,250 Nm) of torque produced by the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8, a 410 HP and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) improvement over the stock executive super estate.

With the aftermarket parts up and running, the tuned RS6 Avant, which boasts original Bugatti Veyron levels of power, does the 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) acceleration in just 2.9 seconds, down from 3.6 seconds of the stock car. It can hit the 124 mph (200 km/h) mark in 8.6 seconds and has a top speed in excess of 217 mph (350 km/h), up from the standard model’s 190 mph (305 km/h).

Straight-line performance is one thing; a track test is a completely different story, and in this case, MTM’s insanely powerful RS6 was unleashed at the Hockenheim GP by SportAuto, posting an unofficial lap time of 1:53.40. But what does that actually mean? Well, it was quicker than the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 (1:53.90) and Taycan Turbo (1:54.10). It also managed to beat the BMW M5 Competition (1:54.20), Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 (1:54.60) and Audi R8 V10 Spyder Performance (1:55.20).

Despite its very impressive performance, though, the tuned super estate couldn’t beat some pretty serious machinery around the track, coming behind the likes of the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S (1:52.80), Porsche 991.2 Turbo S (1:50.00), Lamborghini Aventador SVJ (1:47.30) and McLaren 765LT (1:46.20).
