Pacific German and VF Engineering, two tuning companies from the USA, have pimped an Audi RS6 Avant in cooperation. But really. The result: a real fury of station wagons that has over 1,000 hp and shakes 1,050 Nm onto the crankshaft.
You must be completely insane if 600 hp and 800 Nm from a four-liter biturbo V8 with mild hybrid support in a family-friendly performance combination aren't enough for you. But we don't want to accuse the tuning specialists from Pacific German and VF Engineering of that. Surely the two California-based companies created this beast less because someone needed it and more simply because they could. And yes, there's something about how the modified RS6 in the Youtube video (see below) shot by Auditography - a photo and moving image producer specializing in Audi models - puts its head back at the start and starts to organ. No wonder, especially since the power station wagon with over 1,000 hp and 1,050 Nm does not even have to hide from real hypercars in the drag race.
Extensive engine tuning
The fact that the doubly charged four-liter V8 of the RS6 easily leaves room for improvement in terms of power output is nothing new for tuners. In order to inflate the unit into the four-digit PS range, i.e. to give it an increase in performance of at least 400 PS and 250 Nm, appropriate modifications are required, of course, as the so-called Stage 3 kit from Pacific German and VF Engineering shows: It includes a turbo upgrade from TTE, an Eventuri intake kit, larger high-performance intercoolers from CSF and - that goes without saying - adapted engine electronics. The Audi should storm from zero to 100 km/h in 2.7 seconds and bring it to a top speed of almost 340 km/h. So that the RS6 sounds correspondingly rabid, the doped pack donkey roars from an Akrapovic titanium exhaust system with downpipe.
Discreet body kit
What Audi RS fans are sure to find positive: For the tailpipes of the Akrapovic system, the tuners rely on the oval look of the original covers. And in general, Pacific German and VF Engineering don't go overboard when it comes to design, but leave it - apart from the admittedly wild foiling - with a subtle body kit from Maxton Design with a front spoiler lip, side skirts and a small roof edge spoiler.
But the eye-catching 22-inchers with a bronze finish from Vision Forged are greedy for looks. The RS6 PG-VF Edition rolls up even more strikingly with the bright red EVO 6T rims from Vossen, which some photos also show. Pacific German and VF Engineering also equip the chassis with Abt Sportsline stabilizers.
And in the interior? The tuners mostly leave it with the standard equipment. The only change to the interior: the carbon steering wheel from Carismo Design with red stitching, Alcantara cover and an integrated LED shift light indicator.
And the price?
By the way, the owner of the car is a car and motorcycle enthusiast corporate strategist with Serbian roots from the USA named Drakce Matovski - access on Instagram under the profile drakce_officia l. How much he shelled out for the conversion is not known. Since the normal Audi RS6 starts at 123,500 euros, it was probably worth it for Matovski to have a station wagon with over 1,000 hp in the garage. After all, the tuned Audi certainly cannot match the price of a hypercar such as the Bugatti Veyron, which clearly has four-digit performance.
With their edition of the Audi RS6 Avant, Pacific German and VF Engineering are knocking out a combi beast with over 1,000 hp and 1,050 Nm of torque. It is impressive how much power the mild hybrid-supported four-liter biturbo V8 spits out with appropriate modifications. Visually, the two US companies rely on a discreet body kit and the covers of the exhaust system remain oval. Audi RS fans should like that.
