Tuner ABT Will Build 25 Audi RS6-based Super Wagons With 690 HP

I believe we can all agree that Audi’s RS6 Avant is one of the coolest cars of the very last ten years. What is not to adore about a twin-turbo V8 AWD mega wagon? Very well, all right, it’d be cooler if it had a guide transmission. And ended up offered in brown. The place ended up we? Oh, appropriate! ABT Sportsline is right here to make that mega wagon into a tremendous wagon. Hyper wagon? The confined-to-twenty-5-units ABT Audi RS6+ is what transpires when an previous-college tuning firm will get its hands on every one process in the car. Badassery.

Immediately noticeable is the exterior carbon fiber aero and trim package deal. It is considerable, as you’d hope it to be. This car is all about surplus, and to that close it characteristics carbon on the entrance lip, canards, mirrors, grille trim, facet skirts, rear valance and roof spoiler. All of that carbon trim is coated in gloss, so you can stunt on everybody at the cars and coffee.

Obviously this car is much more than about seeking good, as it cranks up the managing functionality of the now bonkers Audi. ABT has also equipped the car with particular residence-grown stiff anti-roll bars for much better on-keep track of efficiency. To hold the car glued to the road, a bespoke established of 22-inch wheels and sticky tires are bolted on, one to each individual corner. It does not hurt that the wheels search quite damn awesome.

The largest element of the package deal that you are going to notice from at the rear of the wheel is the electricity increase. Fortunately, ABT has not experienced to so a lot as swap the turbochargers for this RS6+ develop, as the engine remains all manufacturing facility. With just a stainless cat-back again exhaust to totally free up some backpressure and provide some large 4-inch guidelines out again, and a “sophisticated ABT Motor Regulate unit” the 4-liter V8 is cranked up to 690 horsepower and 649 lb-ft of torque when you fill the tank with substantial test. That’s an spectacular leap about the stock 591 horsepower and 590 foot-lubs that Audi presents you.

The remaining pieces of the puzzle are observed in the special interior parts that ABT has drummed up. The change knob, shifter paddles guiding the wheel, and dashboard trim have been swapped out for carbon fiber to give a visual inside trace as to what you’re driving. Tack on some “1 of 25” sill plates and distinctive RS6+ floor mats, and you’ve obtained a mild flavor that this is additional than just a ‘normal’ RS6.

ABT doesn’t specify just what the plus package deal will price tag, but if the lessen-tier RS6-S offer (which consists of carbon trim, wheels, anti-roll bars, and sport exhaust) will operate you $36,500. Tack on yet another ten grand or so for the inside trim and the 100 horsepower bump, and you are in all probability in the appropriate ballpark. So which is all over 45 grand on top of your currently $116,000 Audi wagon, but with only 25 built, you’re not likely to see a further one particular on the avenue. And, I signify, can you feel of a cooler dad-cell?
