There are three things German tuner MTM likes more than anything else in this world: horsepower, Audi’s and the colour orange. Their latest creation, the RS6 Clubsport, takes MTM’s triple threat to new heights. Debuting at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the Clubsport starts life as an already fast and capable RS6 Avant but MTM got a little carried away after that.

MTM Orange Audi RS6For starters, the Clubsport wears an impressively un-subtle orange-over-gray paint job with white checkerboard squares splashed across the rear quarter-panels. If the RS6 Avant is the discerning gentleman’s sleeper, the RS6 Clubsport is rocking damn-near-pace-car levels of attention seeking. We think it looks amazing especially on its lowered suspension and with those great MTM wheels.

MTM Audi RS6About 176 pounds have been stripped from the RS6 Avant’s curb weight, but MTM wasn’t satisfied with mere lightweighting. Thanks to unspecified tuning, the Audi’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 now makes 750 horsepower and 697 lb-ft of torque (up from 553 and 516), power that MTM says makes the Clubsport “ready to claim more records in its class”. We know what you’re thinking: the 700-plus-hp luxury-sports wagons are a class? Perhaps you’ve forgotten about Brabus and the magic it sprinkles over Mercedes-Benz’s long-roof E63 AMG. So, yeah, there are multiple station wagons cavorting around Europe with Hellcat-challenging horsepower—and yeah, we’re still jealous.
