What are the chances of a pumped-up family estate defeating one of the world’s fastest accelerating and most powerful supercars? Well, it depends.
In this case, we’re looking at 700 horses in total, brought on by a tmchiptuning ECU tune, which pretty much equals what the Aventador has going for it underneath its carbon fiber engine cover.
It’s safe to assume that the RS6 is packing way more torque than the Lambo, as even in stock form it has 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) to the Aventador’s 690 Nm (508 lb-ft) of torque.
Now even though both cars feature all-wheel drive, there is a massive weight difference between them as the German estate is almost 500 kg (1,102 lbs) heavier than the Italian exotic.
This is of course something that plays a significant role on a drag strip, circuit or pretty much anywhere you choose to race these cars. The Lambo will hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.9 seconds – slightly irrelevant in this case, but it’s still better than a normal RS6’s 3.9.
Unfortunately, we can’t know the tuned version’s performance figures, but watching the video is telling.
Remember that both cars are taking off from a rolling start, which actually helps the heavier RS6 make better use of its torque advantage. Is that enough to make the Aventador sweat even a little? See for yourselves.
