Click to view the MTM RS6 M in our hi-res gallery

With a 580-hp twin-turbo V10 derived from the Lamborghini Gallardo's mill, the Audi RS6 is hardly a candidate for improvements. It's a station wagon that outguns supercars, for crying out loud. But we had to figure that it would only be a matter of time until someone tried, and German tuning house MTM has stepped up to bat.

To give you an idea of what MTM's engineers are capable, with just a tweak of the ECU they've managed to boost output to 656 hp, dropping the 0-60 time down from an already outstanding 4.6 seconds to a scant 3.9. Throw in a stainless steel exhaust and a new air filter and presto! You've got 702 horses underhood. MTM is also offering some reserved carbon fiber aero bits, a new set of brakes, revised dampers and 21-inch wheels. We don't know what kind of world this is where you can get your hands on a 700 horsepower wagon, but we like it. Check out the high-resolution images in the gallery below.

      This one has sleeper written all over...in that inconspicious way that all motorheads know to respect it from a distance.

        I'm with you on that one. Sometimes I think about moving to europe just for the cars.

      Oh man best dads ride ever. I would put a soccer ball magnetic sticker on it and those baby shades to keep the kids cool.

      Fast four doors are great, fast four door wagons are the best. I need one of these for hauling my daughter to soccer practice, so if anybody wants to buy me one it's FOR THE CHILDREN!!!

      Everything seems to be doing 0-60 in 3.9 just like everything used to do it in 4.9. Next it will be 2.9, even though we totally skipped doing 0-60 between 4.8 and 4. Unless you count 240D Mercedes which do 0-60 in 4 minutes.

        I took one of those things (a 240D that is-an auto one, no less) on the freeway at one point. 72hp, 3500lbs, 3spd auto. Not a good combo, made worse when you have to stop at the bottom of the on-ramp for the damn metering lights. Ended up having to use the shoulder to accelerate, still almost got rear-ended. Had to keep my foot more-or-less flat to maintain 80ish, and speed varied with the gradient of the road. On the other hand though, I've never seen a 'happier' OM616 than that thing was after a valve adjustment, some diesel purge and about half an hour of being run flat out.

        • 6 Years Ago
