Some special time with the new 2009 Audi RS6

2009 Audi RS6

There's little doubt that the recently-unveiled 2009 Audi RS6 is a serious monster, and a new salvo in the war between Audi, BMW, and Mercedes to create the perfect Autobahn uber-cruiser. Featuring a 5.2L, twin-turbocharged V-10 under the hood, the mighty sedan from Ingolstadt puts out a whopping 580 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque, channeling that power through a six-speed Triptronic transmission and the automaker's quatto all-wheel drive system for a 0 to 62 mph sprint of just 4.5 seconds. And if that weren't enough already, owners who want more performance can add optional 20-inch forged alloy wheels, ultralight 16.5-in. ceramic brakes, and reflash the ECU to raise the car's top speed from a "mere" 155 mph to a whopping 174.

But in case you don't happen to have approximately 105,550 euros (or $157,301) burning a hole in your pocket, here's a video that gives you time up close with the RS6 without emptying your bank account. The piece is offered without a soundtrack, however, so feel free to put on your favorite song as an accompaniment. Just make sure your windows are closed -- to do a car like this justice, you gotta turn the music up full blast. Check it out here.
