Audi RS6 Gets 1,018 horsepower
This new prototype from the ABT dungeons produces an enormous 1,018 horsepower and 1,291 Nm of torque. To keep the weight down of the four door saloon, ABT have developed a clever system: underneath the hood sits a 730bhp petrol engine, and an electric motor capable of producing 288bhp and 317Nm as of 100km/h. In simple terms, this implies that the car can get the power down at idle from its main engine, and will receive a temporary boost from the electric motors once the 100km/h is reached.
Because the electric motor is only used to supplement the combustion engine at speed, ABT succeeded in fitting a compact 13.6 kWh to the drivetrain.
For starters the 0-100km/h sprint is accomplished in an awesome 3.3 seconds. The boosted 4.0-liter V8 keeps the fun going up to 320km/h. Wow, all this and it is still a family car that easily completes family vehicle duties.
