Click above to view a hi-res gallery of the B&B Audi RS6

A 580hp station wagon (or sedan, for that matter) seems like sheer lunacy in its own right, but it appears that the twin-turbo V10 in the Audi RS6 is capable of a great deal more. Following the release of the 702hp MTM-tuned RS6 M, fellow German tuning house B&B Automobiltechnik has an even more potent tuning package, boosting power up to a whopping 715.

So what did the power-hungry gearheads at B&B do to get a 120 horsepower boost out of the Gallardo-derived FSI? They didn't replace the turbos or fit a new supercharger, nor did they bore out the cylinder block for bigger displacement. They simply fitted a new intake, catalyst, exhaust and cooling system, and tinkered with the ECU. B&B are also offering an adjustable suspension and new springs that drop the ride height by 25mm. The result? A claimed 0-60 run in a scant 3.6 seconds. That's well into supercar territory, as many a Porsche and Ferrari driver are bound to discover when baited into an impromptu red-light drag race. Nice work if you can get it.

      Wow, I knew that Audi left a lot of extra untapped HP in their engines, but that's alot right there. hoofhearted is right, that's the ultimate sleeper, even in "stock" 580HP trim.

      715 Horsepower? That's too much for a wagon.

      I love it.

      715bhp on pump gas? I wonder what it would put out on race gas with no catalytic converters...

        Check out Nelson Racing Engines.com he is building Twin Turbo V8 motors in USA with 2000bhp. CRAZY BUT TRUE!

      This B&B package is simply perfect for transporting me and my lovely wife to that quaint and charming bed and breakfast in the countryside that we love so dearly.

      I'm a BMW guy, but the RS6 excites me. I really wanna drive one.

      Best sleeper I've seen. I'm not a wagon fan, but I want this thing.
