Watch This Audi RS6 Reach 190 MPH On The Autobahn

Video / Comments

This thing is seriously quick.

It took a long time for the Audi RS6 to arrive in the States, but now that it finally has, we've been lucky enough to experience one of the greatest modern Audis on the planet. Along with the 'regular' model, there's also been the unveiling of a special edition that pays tribute to the RS6's legendary RS2 ancestor. We've also been treated to a celebratory concept that calls to mind the early years of quattro and Group B rallying. But as cool as these variants are, the regular RS6 is just as impressive. Watch the video below to see just how quickly this station wagon gets to seriously high speeds.

As you can see, the RS6 needs very little encouragement to get going. Of course, having a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 under the hood helps, especially when it produces 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. Audi says that the RS6 Avant will launch from 0-60 mph in just 3.5 seconds and top out at 174 mph. The car in the video has the ceramic brake upgrade as the limiter has been raised to 190 mph. According to the reading of the speedometer in the above video, the car gets to 305 kph, or 189.51 mph, so Audi's claims are pretty accurate.

The acceleration and speed are astonishing, but if almost 600 hp is not enough for you, plenty of tuners have jumped at the opportunity to further enhance this car's performance ability. One such aftermarket company has raised output to over 700 horses, but MTM can do even better by boosting the RS6 to over 1,000 hp. We'd be pretty happy with a stock standard car that can do 190 mph without breaking a sweat, especially when you can still bring your whole family along for the ride. Here's hoping that Audi's CEO can stand by his word that internal combustion engines still have a reasonable amount of time left with us.
