‘Daytona Gray Matte’ ABT RS6-R Facelift Heading to Geneva

Not to be outdone, ABT is bringing their facelifted 730 HP RS6-R to Geneva, rivaling MTM’s RS6 Clubsport, even though it’s down on power by just 20 horses.

Besides its power, ABT is also showcasing the RS6-R’s “Daytona gray matte” paintwork, saying that this estate’s engine is “more powerful than the NASCAR racers over there in America”.

Which is true, obviously. And then there’s its 320 km/h top speed, which is also down on what MTM has done with their RS6 Clubsport. But we prefer ABT’s version as far as the looks department is concerned.

”On this fit occasion, with new lamps for example, our extensive body kit really comes into its own,” said ABT CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt. We do love the carbon fiber bits, like the front lip blades and the air inlet trims, the side skirts, mirror covers and the rear spoiler. Most of all we love the all-new 22″ FR alloys – which are also set to premiere in Geneva.

ABT used their Power S kit in order to turn what were initially 560 HP, into 730 HP. Therefor it can get from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.3 seconds (only 0.1 sec slower than MTM’s RS6).

Considering the fact that this is arguably the better looking of the two, we wouldn’t shy away from saying this might be the greatest Audi RS6 Avant ever made.
