Audi RS6 Performance Avant 2016

A great wrap on this satin blue Audi RS6. This model is the Performance version of the RS6 in the Avant (estate) body. What's the Performance version, well how the name suggests, the standard 552 bhp RS6 got a bit of a power boost with the 4.0 V8 now reaching 597bhp. In terms of 'performance', we are looking at a 0-62 time of 3.7 seconds and a top speed limit increased to 189mph or 304km/h.

A BMW M4 with the M competition package. Under the bonnet, the M4 gets the 3.0 straight 6 with 444bhp. 0-62 is reached in 4 seconds with a top speed of 155mph or 250 km/h. I do like the GTS style wheels!

Ferrari F2X Longtail (Onyx) 2017

Something a little special today: a Ferrari F12 prepared by Onyx with its own name, F2X Longtail. When I first saw it, I thought this was one of the rare tdf because of the aero parts but as I got closer, I spotted the name and realised it was an after-market prepared F12 rather than a tdf. I had come across Onyx before but generally with Range Rovers or Bentleys, never with a Ferrari. 
So what did they do to create the F2X, well they added/changed quite a few pieces of the car body (bumpers, diffuser, splitter, spoiler, exhaust tips) They also changed the wheels, the suspension springs and the exhaust system and upgraded the power to 800bhp. The result is pretty impressive!
