    • Check out an ABT tuned 700 horsepower twin turbo V10 C6 RS6 play with a Kawasaki ZX-10R motorcycle on the autobahn at 186+ miles per hour

      The crazy thing about this video is you can do this legally in Germany. Seriously, Germans, you have it good and never let them take the autobahn away from you. Basically a Kawasaki ZX-10 and a tuned C6 RS6 by ABT stated to have 700 horses (well within line with the twin turbo V10... which the USA never got) go balls out on the Autobahn. The bike actually tops out its speedometer which reads 299 km/h or about 186 miles per hour although it sure appears both keep accelerating past that speed.


      The crazy thing is up top the RS6 appears to be faster than the bike seemingly pulling at ease and hitting higher speeds. Even when the bike is topped out at 186+ the RS6 just keeps on pulling away, amazing. Aerodynamics at these high speeds clearly playing a role but also that turbo V10 thrust helping out greatly. Check out the four videos below and cry that you can't do this in America without put away for years like some terrorist for enjoying a car built for these speeds:

        That was awesome! I find that most sport bike riders are down to play on the highway. I can honestly say I've had more bike encounters on the highway than I have respectable cars try to run me.

        Ugh the TT RS6 not being released in the US market is still sore subject with me. The ONLY sports sedan I would have considered over my M5 back 2+ years ago.

        I just realized how rare the RS6 sedans are!? Click here to enlarge

        From Wikipedia..

        The total production run of the C6 RS 6 was 8,000 units, with 6,500 of these being Avants and the remainder saloons.[11] The RS 6 was not available in North America, leaving the Audi S6 as the top performing trim there. (The unpopularity of wagons made it unlikely that the RS 6 Avant would be imported, and although it had been rumoured that the RS 6 sedan would be offered in the United States,[12] nothing came of this as the RS 6 importer could not clear US regulations).[13] Production of the C6 RS 6 ended in the third quarter of 2010.[14]

        However the estimated price of the RS 6 sedan in 2010 was $160,000 USD (another source quotes $126,000 USD in 2009, making the RS 6 perhaps too expensive for the United States market[11]) which set it apart from the performance variants of other executive cars: the MRSP of BMW M5's was $85,700 USD, of Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG's was $87,700 USD, and of Audi's own S6 was $78,025 USD

        This engine is related to the naturally-aspirated V10 found in the Audi R8, S6 and S8, and the Lamborghini Gallardo, but the RS 6's engine has around 400 unique parts.

        You can't directly convert the price like that. It would have been $100k or so.
