Audi RS6 by HPerformance is Red. And It Has 700 HP

The Audi RS6 Avant may be a rather discreet vehicle, especially given its 560 HP output, but the Red hue on the example in the adjacent images changes that. Oh and the thing also comes with 700 hp, having been touched by HPerformance.

The twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 was fitted with a carbon air intake, as well as an ECU remap. When it comes to the exhaust, the German tuner offers what they call “sound by choice”. Under the car, we find the company’s own 70 mm double pipe exhaust system, which feature two sound-controlling valves. Hperformance has integrated the exhaust audio control in the RS6’ MMI infotainment interface.

In stock form, the RS6’ powerplant delivers 560 hp and a peak torque of 700 Nm (516 lb-ft), with the unit now delivering 700 hp and 860 Nm (634 lb-ft). The tuning company doesn’t mention the translation of all that power into performance, but we can tell you that the standard RS6 needs 3.9 seconds for the 0 to 62 mph sprint, while offering a top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h) with the Dynamic Plus option.

HPerformance even took the time to think of those for whom the aforementioned output level still isn’t enough. Thus, the tuner let it slip that they are working on an even meaner upgrade, which will see the V8 engine receive larger turbochargers, as well as custom downpipes.
