Audi RS6 Avant - Click above to for high-res image gallery

If you read publications about cars long enough, you'll no doubt catch on to our pro-wagon bias. In fact, if us auto-journo types ran things, SUVs, CUVs and sedans would be banned, and all passenger cars would either be mid-engined, 500 horsepower coupes or 600 hp wagons. With manuals and roll up windows. No, really. This is the type of thinking required to join our vaunted profession. However, one of the many reasons we want mega-burly wagons isn't to haul one ton of dope around.

Seems that a twin-turbo, Lambo-V10 engined Audi RS6 Avant (good for at least 580 hp) was busted outside of Seville, Spain for not only going 133 mph, but for carrying 2,000 pounds of pot. Twenty-seven bundles of hashish to be specific. Value? €120,000, or about $180,000 USD. That's a lot of grass, man. And probably about one thousand pounds more than a RS6 sedan could have carried. Er... umm... we mean.... "Bad RS6 Avant, bad!"

      I guess he felt the need for greed. Oh 27 bundles would have to weight about 75 pounds each him wonder if he would mind giving me his contact? I could make a killing on that being so damn cheap.

      I'm pro-wagon, as long as I never have to carry more than 4 people total.

      Make it 6 or 7 people, and those big SUVs get mighty attractive...

        If I ever have to regularly carry 6 or 7, I'm buying a Sprinter.

      Good grief that is a hot car.

      no drugs needed, I just want a car like that. Or even just a car that color blue.

      the car is 120k euros - the shit in there is worth at least 4 million $

      but this isn't - as some of you assumed weed: 870 kilos of weed would have never fitted in there. its 870 kilos of hash.

      like the car
      like the dope

        ya i got about 6 mil on the street for 1 ton of (good) pot... just doing the math real quickly in my head. multiply that by 3 for good hash.

        wait that might be wrong... but i don't think its too far off.

      I'm thinking maybe they mean that each of the 27 bundles were worth about 120k euros...that'd make much more sense.

      You'd think taking a few trips at a lower speed with much less packed in there would yield better results.

      Great job at reporting autoblog.

      I'll have you know that the guy caught in the car is not a drug user but a drug smugler, they all use very fast stollen cars to move pot from the moroccan border to france.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Of course! The car was high on the stuff and that's why it was going so fast.
        • 5 Years Ago
        @yosh: I concur. And stopping about 8 feet away from the nearest car at a red light ( :

        Taglane, lol,lol,lol,lol you crack me up!!!! yah I agree.
        • 5 Years Ago
        At least they weren't carrying QUACK haha
        • 5 Years Ago
        Well, when I smoke..... I mean.... I heard when you smoke pot, you usually aren't hyper.....

        • 5 Years Ago
        Well the driver couldn't have been high else he would not have been driving that fast. Yes I know from past experience -- my HS Jr Prom-- man that was the longest 4 mile drive of my life, my date got us high made us dinner and then high again then we went to the dance-- one of the best evenings ever and VERY MELLOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Hmmm .... I'm positively surprised that there were only 2 comments doubting that SW the size of A6 can actually haul 2000 lb of stuff (ANY stuff). At 133 mph no less. I was expecting more "need Suburban" comments on this. I guess they realized that max speed in a Suburban with 2000 lb payload would reach somewhere in the stratospheric 85 mph.

      I guess that's the reason why 335d's in Europe haul RVs (caravans) behind them, whereas in US RVs haul 335d's (or, better, Suburbans) behind them.

      If it had been ecstasy instead they could have remade the movie Layer Cake

      I have a suspicion that pot affects vehicles too (if used as actual fuel). Maybe that explains going so fast with so much...
      • 5 Years Ago
      A pound of hash is only worth $90 in Spain?
        • 5 Years Ago
        That's not what J.Lie said.
        • 5 Years Ago
        nope, between 180 and 250€ for 100 gram, depends
        • 5 Years Ago
        lol something seems amiss...
