2013 Audi RS 6 :: Ben Collins vs Damien Walters

Ahead of the official media launch, Audi UK has kindly shared this fun new RS6 video with us for users of AudiSRS.com to enjoy.

That car had to be rigged with some kind of special handbrake.  No normal Electric Handbrake could do some of those turns/stops and low speed tail out stuff!

Good though!

With some other videos, Audi UK have later published a "the making of" follow up, so maybe we will see one for this.

I agree I thought it was entertaining and the RS6 looked great.

Love that colour too, but I'm a big fan of Blue!

Look forward to the making of version.

I am not saying there will be, just perhaps there might be. It would be a good video to have one for.

If you watch closely at 1:18 it looks like Ben pulls a lever with his left hand.

I have seen other "stunt" cars using a line lock that locks off the hydraulic circuit to the front brakes and disables the ABS allowing the foot brake to lock only the rear wheels. The TVR they used in Swordfish had a line lock (no ABS on the TVR though), sure there was something on TV about it, on fifth gear maybe?

I remember that the stunt driver could do a 720 without changing lanes using it in the TVR, also that a line lock is illegal on a road car...... Electric hand brake aside, in my experience even the mechanical ones struggle to lock the wheels with wide sticky tyres.

A link to the making of the film was on the end title all along.

No detail of any modification to the car though.
