The fourth generation of the Audi RS 6 recently came onto the market. Now, with the help of a performance upgrade from ABT Sportsline, you can further enhance the already enormous power of the Avant. But first things first: Since the “Big Bang” in 2002, when the first Audi RS 6 saw the light of day, a great deal has happened, particularly in the field of driving dynamics. So, the latest edition with mild hybrid system is not only driven by a 4.0-litre V8 TFSI boasting 600 hp (441 kW) and 800 Nm, but it can also perfectly conceal its weight. The abundance of high-tech in the chassis area makes it possible: such as the mechanical centre differential, or the optional rear axle sports differential together with all-wheel steering. CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt was convinced from the outset: “This provides an exemplary platform with all of the prerequisites for an ABT Power Performance Upgrade”.
Therefore, the world’s largest tuner of Audi and VW vehicles developed a bespoke software system and utilised its high-tech control unit ABT Engine Control (AEC). The new, spectacular benchmark specification figures are 700 hp (515 kW) and 880 Nm, which, of course, are also reflected in the acceleration: Compared to the standard version, the sprint time from 0 to 100 km/h is reduced from 3.6 to 3.3 seconds. The ABT Performance Upgrade comes with TÜV certification, comprehensive guarantees and a whole host of engine protection measures to provide you with remorse-free driving pleasure. Since the ABT Sportsline range is constantly expanding, the ABT Configuratorkeeps you right up-to-date regarding new products for the RS 6. Of particular interest are the new alloy wheels currently under development which will soon be available in a range of models.
