Starting with the 3.0-liter diesel engine, they fitter their own Engine Control Unit. As a result, the TDI’s output has increased from 286 PS (282 hp / 210 kW) to 330 PS (325 hp / 243 kW). Not bad at all, considering the only work done concerned the ECU.
ABT claims that the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) has been improved by two tenths of a second , down to 5.5 seconds from the stock model’s 5.7 seconds.
For the exterior, the tuner chose a Glacier White paint that’s contrasted by a few glossy black accents. They also installed a front apron, rear skirt add-on and matte black tailpipes, 89 mm (3.5 in) in diameter. ABT dropped the standard rims for new, big 9.5×21-inch ones finished in Mystic Black and wrapped in 255/35 Continental tires.
Greeting driver and passengers upon opening the doors are the ABT integrated entrance lights. The interior is pretty much stock, apart from a specific push-button cover.
ABT also announced that they will bring their tuned A6 Avant to the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, where visitors will see it in the flesh starting from March 7, a couple of days after the event kicks off for the press.
