AVUS Audi RS6 Generates 700 BHP

AVUS Performance, a firm based in Berlin, has just presented its very own aftermarket version of Audi RS6, a model which is now capable of developing as much as 700 bhp thanks to a wide array of engineering upgrades.

To get straight to the point, the tuned RS6 boasts a new high performance exhaust system with a diameter of 70 mm as well as new racing catalysts and a new ECU software. Thanks to these modifications, the RS6 is now developing 700 bhp (up from the initial 580 bhp) and 800 Nm of torque (479 Nm on the standard model).

Obviously, performance figures are improved a lot, with 0 to sixty acceleration now done in 3.9 seconds, according to specifications provided by AVUS. The car jumps from 0 to 120 mph in 12.1 seconds, with maximum speed electronically-limited at 211.27 mph (340 km/h) "to not overstress the tires of the V10 biturbo," as the company said in a release.

The tuning has also adjusted the factory suspension with electronic settings and lowered the body by around 40 millimeters.

"The handling improves noticeable and the car gets much more agile. On the other hand it fits perfectly to the complete look of the car and makes sense in combination with all the other options. Last but not least a carbon front-lip and a rear diffusor are also offered and are the icing on the cake," the tuner explained in a press statement some of the many modifications.

With standard factory settings, the RS6 develops 580 bhp and 650 Nm (479.35 lb-ft) of torque, while jumping from naught to sixty in 4.5 seconds. The maximum speed is electronically-limited at 155.3 mph (250 km/h).
