Audi RS 6 + Former Stig + Parkour Guy + Paint Fight = Fun: Video


Duel was a 1971 movie directed by Steven Spielberg and featuring a guy in a Plymouth Valiant being chased by a semi truck.

Now, there's a much less terrifying version, with a much better car.

"The Duel" features former Stig Ben Collins in a very Top Gear-esque challenge: a man vs. machine paint battle against a parkour runner.

Collins' weapon of choice? An Audi RS 6 Avant.

One would think that a 4.0-liter V-8 with 560 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque controlled by James Bond's driving instructor would have an advantage over a guy on foot, but it's kind of hard to throw paint-filled eggs and steer at the same time.

The dockyard locale of the challenge also prevented Collins from fully unleashing all of that power.

When it's not being driven in a warehouse, the RS 6 can launch itself to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds, and reach a top speed of 189.5 mph with the top Dynamic packages plus.

So, for awhile, parkour expert Damien Walters toys with the car and ruins its paint, making us wonder why Collins didn't simply run him over.

While stopping just short of homicide, Collins really made the RS 6 dance; it seems almost as agile as the person it's chasing.

Besides the RS 6's explosive power and nimble, quattro all-wheel drive-equipped chassis, Collins does have another secret weapon in his arsenal. Watch the video above to see what it is.
