[VIDEO] Audi RS6 sets world speed record on ice image

The Audi RS6 has recently became the fastest car in the world on ice with Janne Laitinen behind the wheel, and the video posted below stands proof of the achievement.

The impressive attempt took place on a 12 km ice track in the Gulf of Bothnia, between Finland and Sweden, with driver Janne Laitinen behind the wheel, who has managed to set a new world speed record on ice. With a slightly modified car and the Nokian Hakkapeliitta tires on its rims, Janne Laitinen has managed to reach a top speed of almost 340 km/h, 336.511 km/h to be more precise, or 209.098 mph.

In order for the record to be homologated by Guiness, the ice must be natural, not roughened or treated with chemicals, and the tires might be available in stores and approved for road use. Needless to say that the world speed record on ice can now be found in the Guiness Book of Records. The Audi RS6 in question has a 5.0 liter twin-turbo V10 engine under its hood, which is good for 426 kW and 650 Nm of torque.
