Aftermarket companies inherently have a crazy side to them. How else do you explain the need to add on cars that have already been built for the sheer purpose of making them faster and more powerful than what the automakers themselves intended. This understanding of tuning firms help in setting expectations, but even with these expectations, there are programs that still leave us scratching our heads.
I say that because a Redditor brought up this insane Audi RS7, which was the subject of a Stage 10 performance kit. Yep, stage 10. Total Race, a Russian tuning company, is said to be responsible for this program. I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t know what a Stage 10 kit entails, but I do know that from the basic act of counting, nine programs preceded it. That begs the question on how powerful this RS7 is with a Stage 10 kit when a Stage 4 program from Total Race already gives the RS7 an incredible 1,100 horsepower and 1,000 pound-feet of torque. Do the math and there’s still five stages of engine upgrades before reaching Stage 10.
One look at the RS7 shows you how insane the car really is. It’s so mental that the RS7’s actual hood was taken out just to fit that huge engine. And if my eyes don’t deceive me, those “devil horns” look like built-in exhaust systems. There’s no word on how powerful this RS7 is, but judging by how quickly the RS7 launched from a standstill, I’d be remiss if I didn’t let my imagination run wild.
