When more than four decades ago Audi presented the “80”, the new A4’s “forefather”, ABT was part of it. “The A4 is a benchmark against which Audi’s competitors have to be measured. This car sets premium standards”, says Hans-Jürgen Abt, managing director. "It stands for maximum dynamics and agility, but also for economic efficiency, roadworthiness and a self-confidently discreet design."
Also the current A4 delivers sporty performance in spades. For long-distance drivers, the brand-new 50 TDI or the recent 45 TDI qualify as real dream cars. Their sporty petrol-powered pedant is the 45 TFSI. An ABT Power Performance Upgrade unleashes even more power from all three. The upgrade, which is based on the high-tech control unit ABT Engine Control, provides the 45 TDI with a significant boost of 37 hp (27 kW) and 40 Nm. All in all, performance is increased from 231 hp (170 kW) and 500 Nm to 268 hp (197 kW) and 540 Nm.
