ABT Gives Audi RS6 735 Horses With Limited Edition

Audi‘s super estate, the RS6 Avant, was transformed by ABT Sportsline into an even more powerful machine, just in time for its debut in Switzerland.

Named the ABT RS6, the model celebrates the company’s 120th anniversary with 175 PS more over the standard car, to a total of 735 PS and 920 Nm (679lb-ft) of torque, achieved with a specially developed Engine Control unit and a special software. Zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) time was not announced, but the tuner claims the upgraded RS6 can go up to a top speed of 320 km/h (199mph).

Setting it apart from its regular siblings is a new aerodynamic package, which adds carbon fiber exposed air inlet panels, front flics, side mirror caps and rear skirt, on top of the rear spoiler, made from the same lightweight material.

Since ABT’s special RS6 will be available in just 12 units, a “1/12” logo will complement its design, along with the four tailpipes, painted in a matching color, and the 10×22-inch ABT FR wheels, with a five-double spoke design, wrapped in 295/25 Dunlop performance tires.

Inside, the car benefits from sports seats in bi-color leather, matching the exterior, and it has Alcantara-wrapped headliner, pillars and tailgate. A combination of leather and Alcantara was added on the dashboard, door panels and steering wheel.

ABT will announce full details on the limited edition Audi RS6 at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, next week.
