While most shops focus on tuning the latest Euro hotness, MFK has put its efforts into modifying the old-school (C5) Audi RS6, dropping the wagon over a set of 20x10.5-inch wheels and stretching some sticky 285/25 Dunlop rubber over each satin black, three-piece hoop.
Unfortunately, MFK hasn't divulged what's been done to the suspension, and there's even less info about the engine mods. All we know is the twin-turbo, 4.2-liter V8's software has been tweaked to coax out 520 horsepower – another 80 hp over the stock, Cosworth-modified mill – and a full sports exhaust is available for the princely sum of 5,999 euros (nearly $9k USD). Or maybe that's a typo in the awkwardly translated press release below the fold.
Powercar RS6 – by MFK
The driving performance of the RS6 from MSK is on the level of a high performance sports car. Extreme sportiness was at primary focus during the conversion of the RS6. Hence there was not only the engine power to be increased but also the visual appearance to be improved.
The Audi RS6 from MFK hides the enormous power behind a harmonious series outfit. Huge spoiler and Airbrush finishing you do not get from MFK. Through big vents on the left and right side in the front the athlete sucks enough air for the optimized gearing. After a software change through MFK there are 520 hp at the RS6 command.
The aluminium rims from Schmidt Revolution are called CC-Line "Satin Black". The 3-part rims are size 10,5x20" and have been equipped with extremely big tires. MFK decided for high performance tires from Dunlop size 285/25-20. The wheelset guaranties secure running characteristics at high speed. Responsible for this is the high polished and extreme solid RADINOX outer ring made of stainless steel. Using wide base tires the RS6 rushes toward a targeted point at the horizon as if glued to the street.
In addition MFK offers a subtle sports exhaust system with 100 cells cat and Y-branch pipe for 5.999,00 Euro. Therewith the RS6 from Bad Kreuznach is not just as convenient as a light truck, but fast and fancy.
