Kimi Raikkonen's Audi RS6 For Sale
It has F-1 levels of horsepower, of course, except it's a station wagon.
Have you always wanted to own the car of a Formula 1 World Champion? Well, this could be your chance, but it might not be exactly what you were expecting. It has F-1 levels of horsepower, of course, except it’s a station wagon, not an open-wheel racer. One that shows that Kimi Raikkonen has automotive taste as good as you’d hope.
Audi’s RS6 Avant left the factory with a 4.0L twin-turbo V8 tuned to a maximum of 597 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque, but when your weekend car is a Ferrari that makes somewhere north of 1,000, that’s not even close to enough. So this one’s been modified from stock to put out a more respectable 670 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque thanks to a tuning kit from BSR of Sweden, according to the ad. That makes the already quick and subtle wagon into a rocket ship, one that’ll rocket off with a ferocity close to that of an F1 car. Maybe even quicker since it’s all-wheel drive. That’s ok, though, you can leave Kimi alone behind the wheel, he knows what he’s doing.
It comes with 22-inch Vossen wheels wearing Michelin tires, but since this one makes its home in Finland, some more winter-appropriate rubber was required. In this case, that means 20-inch wheels wearing Nokian studded winter tires. Which means that this rocket ship can work in the snow as much as it can the summer.
The ad says that when this one was new it stickered for € 228,000, which is about CAD $335,000 thanks to the modifications and heavy new car taxes in Finland. Today the car has just under 60,000 km on the odometer, plus a couple of owners since the Iceman himself drove it, but that means that the price has come down too. Now it’s more like € 125,000, which is about $184k. So maybe it’s not that much of a bargain, but this is still an uncommon car with a cool previous owner story.
Aside from the powertrain and winter rubber, this one’s fairly standard RS6 Avant. So it’s got plenty of cargo space if that’s your thing, and you can use it to transport five people and cargo to wherever you want to go in just about any weather conditions. Just that in this one, when the five red lights go out, you can do it extremely quickly.
