Meanwhile in Russia: Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Give a Truck Driver the Finger… (Explicit) [HD 3D]
The incident begins with an obnoxious driver of an older Audi A6 sedan illegally and dangerously overtaking a truck and then being a -insert whatever word works for you here- constantly slamming on the brakes.
After doing the same thing a few times and in response to the truck driver’s use of the horn, the middle-age driver of the Audi shows him the ring on his finger – if you catch our drift…
The performance packages start with the 2.0-liter four-cylinder TDI that receives an ECU reflash lifting output from 174hp (177PS) to 202hp (205PS).
For the three variants of Audi’s 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 TDI, the base 201hp (204PS) unit is boosted to 266hp (270PS), the 242hp (245PS) engine to 296hp (300PS) and the flagship 309hp (313PS) version to 355hp (360PS).
The fine-tuning starts from the engine bay where MTM engineers upgrade the V6 unit’s software boosting output and peak torque from 309hp (313PS) and 650Nm (479 lb-ft) to 376hp (381PS) and 780Nm (575 lb-ft) respectively.
The cost for the ECU optimization is set at €1,800 (US$2,230) while MTM also offers a slightly less powerful version at 360hp (365PS) and 760Nm (560 lb-ft) for €100 less.
To improve the diesel-powered A6’s stopping power, MTM has developed two different brake sets. The first one comes with 380 X 34 mm discs, stainless-steel-flex-line and eight-piston calipers priced at €4,900 (US$6,070), while the second set with uprated 405 X 36 mm discs at a cost of €6,400 (US$7,930).
Next up on MTM’s menu is the €1,740 (US$2,160) F-Cantronic ECU upgrade for the air suspension that allows the driver to drop the ride height by up to 25mm at the front axle and 20mm at the rear.
Last but not least, the German tuner offers a variety of alloy wheel designs in sizes from 18- to 20 inches priced from €1,730 to €5,230 (US$2,140-US$6,480).
2013 Audi A6 Allroad Turbocharged (European Market)
In Europe, there are four available powerplants including one TFSI gasoline engine and three TDI diesel units.
The 3.0-liter V6 TFSI is rated at 310HP and 440 Nm (325 lb-ft) and accelerates the Allroad to 100 km/h (62mph) in 5.9 seconds on the way to an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155mph). It consumes 8.9 liters of fuel per 100km (26.4 mpg US).
All three diesel engines are based on Audi’s 3.0-liter V6 TDI producing 204HP, 245HP and in the case of the twin-turbocharged version, 313HP. The most powerful diesel, which is linked to an 8-speed auto, allows for 0-100km/h sprint time of 5.6 seconds and an electronically regulated 250 km/h (155mph) tops speed.
The TSI and the two less potent diesel engines are paired to Audi’s 7-speed dual clutch transmission.
We still don’t know if Audi will bring the A6 Allroad to North America, but in Europe, it goes on sale this spring the base 204HP TDI model starting from €54,600 (about US$70,000).
New 3d mapping installation for Audi presented a few new challenges for our ops team since we have to move it around several locations and manage to fit the mapping movie. The projection was done using 2 of our new Christies DHD800 (full HD) which we absolutely love and definitely make a huge difference compared to XGA projection. For the mapping movie our talented design team used 3DMax, Cinema 4D, AfterFX and lots of computer power. Thanks to our friend Paolo Palazzo for the sound effects and to ORBITAL (one of our fave electronic bands) for the sound track.

The road is not exactly a place of intelligence. You read about it. You hear about it in the news. You witness it every day on your commute. Which is exactly why Audi engineered the highly intelligent new Audi A6 - built to combat whatever “genius-ness” the road throws its way. These spots shed some light on the current state of our unintelligent roads and drivers, offering up a solution in the new A6 - a technologically advanced car that makes 2000 decisions every second.
WTF?: 2012 Audi A6 Avant promo - full edit (it’s like Chrysler 200’s commercial)
Audi is launching the next generation of the A6 Avant, the most successful business-class station wagon in Europe. The new model presents the brand’s full array of progressive technological expertise. Its lightweight body, large portions of which are made of aluminum, sets new standards, as does the wide selection of assistance and multimedia systems. The keyword for the latter is Audi connect. The new Audi A6 Avant is available with a choice of six engines: two gasoline engines and four diesel units. Fuel consumption has been reduced by as much as 18 percent compared with the previous model. Topping the engine lineup is the new 3.0 TDI with twin-turbo technology and 230 kW (313 hp). Audi also offers numerous high-end options for the drivetrain and the chassis. The luggage compartment has a capacity of up to 1,680 liters (59.33 cu ft) and offers a number of elegant features, including a power rear hatch that opens in response to a sensor signal.
