ABT’s 530PS Audi RS4-R Avant Is All The Super-Estate You’ll Ever Need

The new generation Audi RS4 Avant has fallen into the hands of ABT Sportsline once more, only to come out even hotter than before.

By fitting the 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 engine with an engine control unit, and a high-performance exhaust system, the tuner’s engineers were able to lift the output to 530PS (523hp) and 690Nm (509lb-ft) of torque.

This represents a 20PS (20hp) and 10Nm (7lb-ft) of torque increase over their previous RS4 project, and 80PS (79hp) and 90Nm (66lb-ft) of torque more than the stock car.

Cornering performance is said to be enhanced by the sport stabilizers and height adjustable suspension springs. Those looking for a bit more will have to wait for the ‘shock absorber setup’, which is currently in development with KW.

Alongside the 102mm carbon tailpipes, the super wagon also has a host of visual updates on the outside, such as the tweaked grille, bumpers, and rear diffuser. As a final touch, the Audi RS4 Avant rides on 21-inch wheels, shod in 275/25 rubber.

More carbon fiber was added inside too, where the part-leather seats can also be found, in addition to other upgrades.

ABT has baptized their latest project the RS4-R, and they will bring it at the Geneva Motor Show, probably alongside other tuned vehicles.

    Yes! Not an Audi guy.
    P.S. rear end is very “nasty.” The good kind.
