At the Top Gear car show, a renowned racer named Stig decided to showcase what the Audi RS6 Avant family wagon is capable of. “The car is very confident on the track and very good cornering, even at high speeds” – said the driver.

For many, a station wagon is presented as a large, clumsy family vehicle. However, the high-performance Audi RS6 Avan, which is also a station wagon, is by no means a clumsy car. This is exactly what a racer named Stig, who “works” in the iconic Top Gear car show, decided to prove it.

The RS6 has always been a powerful car, but this video shows that the latest generation Audi family car, the C8, isn’t all that bad not only when driving in a straight line, but also when driving at high speeds on a race track.

It’s certainly not the same level of handling as the Mazda Miata, but again, the German station wagon weighs about twice the weight of the Japanese roadster. There is noticeable understeer here and there, but nevertheless, the Audi RS6 Avant can handle all corners with confidence.

Its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine develops 591 horsepower (800 Nm). By the way, Audi representatives have repeatedly talked about the possibility of a more powerful version of the station wagon, which will receive the Performance designation, and under its hood there will be a plug-in hybrid power plant, which will also be applied to the RS7 Performance.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that a Ducati motorcycle of ex-Top Gear leaders appeared on sale. At the end of this month, the Ducati 851, which was owned by two former Top Gear presenters, was originally owned by James May at a Charterhouse auction and sold to Richard Hammond.
