The general fitness trend is great: In any case, it clearly demonstrates that it does not take a professional athlete to achieve impressive performances. ABT Sportsline has achieved enormous training success with the standard Audi A6 ‒ since not all cars are destined to be an S6 or RS6: “A 2.0 or 3.0 TDI or even 3.0 TFSI are wholly sufficient to achieve race-car performances,” explained CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt. “At least if one invests in ABT Power New Generation.“
The separate ABT control unit, which includes independently developed software, can extract 215 HP/158 kW and 440 Nm from the four-cylinder Audi A6 TDI with 190 HP/140 kW and 400 Nm. The standard 320 HP/235 kW and 326 HP/240 kW 3.0 TDI are at the other end of the Diesel spectrum. Both can reach 365 HP/268 kW and 710 Nm (series 650 Nm respectively), thanks to ABT. Audi fans with petrol in their veins also do not have to despair: The standard 3.0 TFSI with 333 HP/245 kW is pushed to 410 HP/301 kW with a torque increase from 440 Nm to 520 with the new ABT Power New Generation. The official four-litre S6 does not have much more to offer.
“We not only add muscle to the game, but also increase general agility,” added Abt. The electronic suspension lowering system ABT Level-Control is part of the assortment for vehicles with air suspension; “steely” drivers receive height adjustable suspensions springs upon request. The optional ABT sport brake system with 8-piston fixed callipers is available for drivers who really work the break as they enter curves.
ABT Sportsline is also introducing a comprehensive optics package for the Audi A6: The styling assortment begins with aggressive fender inserts and mirror covers in high-gloss visible carbon and continues with two different rear spoilers for vehicles with the S-line package and the emblem set “Black Chrome”. But we saved the best for last: the ABT Sportsline rear skirt set including quadruple rear muffler and 89 millimetre pipe diameter. ABT mechanics installed 9x21 inch light-alloy wheels type DR on the photo vehicle. Are you looking for an alternative? Light-alloy wheels ER-C or FR from 19 inches are a good choice.
