Speed Week: Deutsch Marques
Eins, zwei, drei... SLS AMG Black, M135i and RS6 head through the mountains to join the TG party in France

The Audi RS6 is a machine for the relentless acquisition and retention of momentum. The 560bhp V8 engine sounds soft, and its initial responses are gentle, but don't be fooled. Those well-upholstered arms will catch you in a bear hug and hurl you forward on the twin-turbo cyclone. On the autobahn, its ease and stability insulate you from the speed. You sit there in your quilted leather throne, wondering how many bankers they had to skin to get a perfectly aligned pinstripe for the trim veneer, and, shucks, you've used up an entire country.
