AVUS Performance Audi RS6 Avant

AVUS Performance, based in Berlin, that starting basis was not enough with its 580bhp and an impressive 650Nm ( 479.35 lb/ft) of torque the actual Audi RS6 is the perfect symbiosis of an estate and a super car.

As the importer for Sportec products in Germany they equipped the RS6 with a new high performance exhaust system with a diameter of 70mm, racing catalysts and a new ECU software.

The maximum power increased up to 700bhp and an astonishing 800Nm (589.97 lb/ft ) of torque are now tearing all 4 wheels.

The results are 0-60 in 3.9s, 0-120 in 12.1s and the RS6 is electronically limited at 211.27mph to not overstress the tires of the V10 biturbo. To get the power to the ground at best Avus Performance mounted a set of 22″ wheels in the classic Sportec Mono 10 design.

Besides the better grip these have great impact to the overall look.

The already good standard factory suspension with electronic settings was only slightly modified with lowering springs which help to lower the car by 40mm. The handling improves noticeable and the car gets much more agile. On the other hand it fits perfectly to the complete look of the car and makes sense in combination with all the other options. Last but not least a carbon front-lip and a rear diffusor are also offered and are the icing on the cake.

Iranian Car Designers Exhibit their Conceptual Proposals

Car designers from Iran? Why not, we ask? No one ever said that automotive designing is restricted to Italians, British, French, Americans, Koreans - you get the point. These conceptual proposals are the work of young Iranian graduates in Industrial and Transportation Design and they were displayed at an exhibition titled "From Dream to Reality" that took place from 18 to 23 April 2009 at the Kamal Aldin Behzad Gallery in Teheran, Iran. As with any exhibition of the sort, some projects were more interesting than others, but we'll let you judge for yourselves.
