Germany’s AutoBahn highway system takes the speed limits away from the cars in some areas and if there’s one estate vehicle you need to see eat up those roads, it’s the 2018 Audi RS6 Performance. 

Being ahead through technology is the name of the game for Audi and there’s no doubt that their RS6 Performance model is among their most impressive releases to date, for the executive portion of the market at least.

In what would probably be a dream scenario for car enthusiasts, one of AutoTopNL’s lucky drivers were handed the opportunity to take this powerful set of wheels for spin and the results were both scary as well as magnificent.

AudiHere’s the Audi RS6 Performance model featured in AutoTopNL’s video speed test.

For those who aren’t aware, AutoTopNL is a car filming and testing company that often posts their videos to YouTube for their fans to enjoy. At the time of writing, their official channel has over 1.74 million subscribers and the video of the R26 Performance has eclipsed 100,000 views.

The top speed for the vehicle is actually 189.5 mph and during the course of the video you can hang off the edge of your seat to see how close it gets to that figure. There’s a speedometer on the right side of the screen for reference.

This car included in their review has a 4.0 litre V8 BiTurbo AWD engine, which is capable of 720hp, and has SKN tuning. Without further ado, though, let’s see how it looked on the road.

Seeing a motorcar like this roar through the German countryside is one thing, but hitting “crazy fast” speeds will be enough to keep any of their viewers entertained.

Some of which, interestingly, noted in the comment section that the car was physically shaking as it climbed towards its top speed. “That transmission hasn’t got much life left,” one posted, while another joked: “In the time my car takes to reach 40mph this car is already four cities ahead.”

Those interested in buying the Audi RS6 Performance featured in this speed test, you can pick one up on the market for between £90,560 – £107,060.

TikTok star Nikita Crump has managed to pull off the incredible feat of living in her car, a 2012 Honda Civic, for over one year. Now, she has explained how she was able to pull it off in a new YouTube video.

Crump’s journey began in a video first uploaded on November 3, 2019 where she explained how she officially told her landlord she would be moving out of her home and into her car.

According to Crump, this wasn’t some impromptu decision and she had been spending a few months actively thinking about it before taking the plunge.

Nikita has been living in her car for over a year.

Despite having a nice house with affordable rent and good roommates, she felt moving into her car was something she “had to do.”

Since then, she has successfully spent a whole year living in her car and marked the anniversary of her first night by explaining how she is able to stay cool or warm at night.

In the backseat of her car, the YouTuber keeps a pillow and too fuzzy blankets which she uses to cover herself up.

Along with her sweatpants and sweatshirt, she is able to stay warm even in the winter months. However, occasionally she has to put a jacket on if it’s ever especially cold outside.

“In Northern California, a lot of the warmer days are still cool nights, so I’m fortunate that most nights throughout the year are totally bearable, but there’s totally been the occasion where it is hot, I am sweating and I wear as minimal clothing as I can,” she explained.

Luckily, she also has a rechargeable fan which can help her get through the night if need be despite only staying charged for one day.

@nikitaraschellYeah, I’m homeless. I live in my civic, I shower at my gym, and I’m just your average gal. ##whatsinmybag ##hotelcivic ##homeless ##sponsorme♬ Aesthetic Girl – Yusei

In addition to just staying cool, the TikTok sensation also revealed she showers at the gym and keeps plenty of personal hygiene products inside her bag including shampoo, toothpaste, and deodorant to name a few.

Now, Crump is hitting the road and embarking on a two-month-long trip around the United States where she’ll be documenting her experiences.

The entertainer’s decision to live in her car has paid dividends, as she currently has over one million followers on TikTok.
