Audi A6 Sets World Record: Travels 14 Countries Without Refill

Written By:

The Audi A6 TDI ultra is now officially a Guinness World Record holder, having covered 14 countries on a single tank of diesel.

The car travelled a total distance of 1158.9 miles without the need for a fuel-stop, that is averaging 75.9 mpg.

The A6 TDI ultra was driven by Andrew Frankel and racing driver Rebecca Jackson, almost non-stop for nearly 28 hours from the Netherlands to Hungary, passing through Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Serbia.

The journey of course was not the smoothest, as they faced detours, traffic, closed roads and tunnels and even an unplanned detour!

Commenting on the new record, Jon Zammett, the Head of Audi UK Public Relations, said, "By covering so much of Europe on a single fill-up, we have proven that real-world economy of almost 76 mpg or more can be had from the latest engine technology."

"The Audi A6 TDI ultra has proven the range capability of one of the world's most advanced executive cars."
