Avus Performance has unveiled the new "WHITE POWER" Audi RS6, which is undoubtedly one of the most offensive automotive products ever conceived. While we cannot be certain whether this is a horrible German to English translation or a cheap ploy to get media attention, it seems dubious that a company - a German company no less - would actually use the term White Power as a product name.
The car is essentially an Audi RS6 equipped with Sportec's RS700 kit which includes a new high performance exhaust system, racing catalysts and retuned engine electronics. These improvements create major performance gains as the RS6 boasts 700 bhp and 800 Nm (590 lb/ft) of torque. This enables the White Power to run from 0-60 mph in just 3.9 seconds before hitting an electronically limited top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h).
Other features of the awfully named Avus include 22" Sportec Mono 10 wheels, lowering springs which reduce the ride height by 40 mm (1.6"), and an optional carbon fiber front-lip spoiler.
[UPDATE] AVUS Performance has issued a press release announcing the use of the "White Power" title is a mistranslation:
Dear visitors, readers and customers,
We are very sorry and unfortunate for what has actually happened and is currently happening to our first press report. Due to a mistranslation of our latest project car - the Audi RS6 V10 biturbo - there were lots of radical right-wing rumors on all different blogs and pages that received our first press report. We distance ourselves from the project title - it was done by our press agency which obviously mistranslated our German project name into English. Furthermore we distance ourselves from anything that has to do with that group synonym and we would also like to say sorry if anyone got personally touched.
The AVUS PERFORMANCE Team
