Audi RS6 of the King of Spain, Juan Carlos I One More Reason Why It's Good to Be King?
thought this one has to be extremely special to actually be worth
covering. And boy, did I find the right candidate! A true car fanatic,
Juan Carlos I, the King of Spain, has just added to its amazing car
collection (which includes a 1959 Rolls Royce Phantom IV, a Maybach or
his first drive, a classic Mini) with this slick new Audi RS6 that
features a lot of monarchical upgrades .
Speaking of goodies, the Royal Audi RS6 is stylish painted in black,
features a blacked-out Audi logo and aeye-catching dark graphite
five-spoke wheels. Power comes from a tweaked 5.0-liter TFSI engine
mated to a six-speed Tiptronic transmission, that helps it churn out 572
horsepower and up to 480 ft-lb of torque. All these to propel the beast
from naught to 100km/h in 4.5 seconds on its way to an electronically
limited 280 km/h.
Other changes to the Royal Audi RS include front-mounted emergency
lights to help it move easier during rush hour, a special license plate
to stand out from the crowd and flag-holders above the front wheels.
