    Audi RS6 Caught in Spain Going 133mph with 870kg of Hashish

    A smoking Audi RS 6 Avant was caught doing 213.8km/h on the A-49 stretch between Huelva and Seville in Spain. The driver was busy getting away from the long arm of the law, which in turn was keen on his load. Some law-enforcers spotted the big Audi carrying a number of rather suspicious-looking bags at the back. These could easily be seen through the clear windows.

    Upon realising his steed was being closely examined, the driver planted his right foot on the floor, letting loose all power to reach a high of about 240km/h at some point. The agents of course gave chase for about 20km but could not catch the flying RS 6 with its 580 horses in full attendance.

    Eventually the fleeing driver came up to some heavy traffic and could not exploit the car's engine anymore. So he got out and ran, on foot. It turns out he had quite a valid reason for his neck-breaking speed. A total of 27 bags of hashish weighing about 870kg (1,918 lbs) was confiscated from everywhere but the driver's side. The illegal cache's street value is estimated at €120,000 (US$180,500), about €10,000 less than a standard RS 6 Avant in Germany. The RS 6 driver was eventually apprehended.

    Unbelievable

    Looks like he had been grocery shopping for narcotics

    I was just thinking of getting one in replacement of the CT. Well now that i know that RS6 are good for dealers, i might think twice

    What a catch !

    "Go fast" sadly are really common nowadays, mostly from Marbella or Malaga to Paris' suburbs. Drug dealers use up to six cars, including one in front to make sure the "coast is clear" and one far behind as a backup vehicle in case something wrong happens. Thanks to their phenomenal speed, they are obviously not easy to stop, and they don't even have to hide the drug (which means that a single car can load up to 600 kgs, sometimes more).

    Most of the cars (usually S/RS Audi models, Mercedes, BMWs, Porsches) come from carjackings, and I heard that drivers (or should I call them lunatics) can be paid between 5k€ to 8k€.

    Not that long ago, a couple of drug dealers (driving a BMW X5) involved in a go fast were stopped by the GIGN... which is the equivalent of the US SWAT.

    apart from the guy being a moron for dealing with drugs, he is also a bigger moron by loading a car up with almost 2000 pounds of hash everywhere on the car and still drive around with clear windows. He should've at least put the darkest privacy tint available out there .


    Re: Audi RS6 Caught in Spain Going 133mph with 870kg of Hashish

    Wow, drivers get paid 5000 euros, where do i sign up? I watched all the chase movies so i wont do all the classic mistakes lol.

     Hey being paid to drive?  Cool, count me in!  Although I am not so sure about the added weight though.  At the very least he could have striped out the interior to counter the weight a little.  Oh, glad I bought a X5M and not RS6. 


    Re: Audi RS6 Caught in Spain Going 133mph with 870kg of Hashish

    Imagine how much faster the car would have been without the "hashish" option package!!!


    Re: Audi RS6 Caught in Spain Going 133mph with 870kg of Hashish

    WoW didnt knew about it !!!!. The photographs just speak for themselves, reality is better than fiction !!! lol ......May be he played a lot of gran theft auto 4 in his xbox 360, and decided it was time to make it happen

    The driver must have some balls, or be plain stupid.....or a mixture!!

    Here's my version of the story. The poor guy became a victim of the financial crisis and couldn't afford to pay anymore for the leasing of the car. At the same time he loved the car and wanted to keep it, that's why he was "forced" get into the drugs business.

    Btw, with the fuel consumption of the RS6, I am not sure that you will make any money if you move less the 200 kg of hashish on a long drive.

    You must be stupid, if you speed in as shiny car, instead of keeping the rules in a normal every mans car.

    Exactly. Get a Passat SW or some Golf and do not break speed limits.
