Once again, Audi have created the perfect synergy of the sports car and touring estate with the latest RS 6. Each new RS generation is accompanied by new developments. The latest edition is the first to feature optional all-wheel steering. This reduces the turning circle and at speeds above 100 km/h, the rear wheels steer to aid stability. ABT Sportsline is delighted to work with this excellent foundation and is transforming 125 Audi RS 6 into the special limited edition ABT RS6-R.
The core of the ABT RS6-R package is the ABT Power R performance upgrade, which unleashes an extremely sporty 740 hp (544 kW) and 920 Nm in the 4.0-litre V8 TFSI engine. This means an increase of 140 hp (103 kW) and 120 Nm over the standard model. Of course, as a special limited edition, the ABT RS6-R also demands visual enhancement. The Bavarian company has developed high-quality ABT Aerodynamics carbon body components, which give the RS6-R’s front in particular a much more aggressive and striking appearance. The package includes among other things, an ABT frontlip and front grille frame add-on, rear skirt add-on, side skirt attachments and fender inserts. The tuners have made ten interior components available. As such, the ABTleather and carbon finish for the steering wheel is both sporty and luxurious. The limited quantity of the RS6-R is immortalised in the ABT door sills (1 of 125) in the door frame. At the rear, the stainless steel ABT exhaust system with 4 carbon endpipes emphasises the sporty character of the vehicle. This is further underlined by the weight-optimised 22-inch ABT High Performance HR. These wheels are manufactured via a flowforming process and come into their own in combination with the ABT suspension programme. The RS 6 has been praised by the automotive press for its superb handling characteristics. ABT coilover suspension springs and sports anti-roll bars add the finishing touches. www.abt-sportsline.com/limited-editions/abt-rs6-r
An optional, enhanced ABT interior package is also available, comprising carbon dashboard covers and seat frame covers and 22-inch ABT HR Aero wheels.
