1896

COLLECTABLES BELONG IN THE DISPLAY CABINET.
BUT OURS ALREADY CONTAINS OUR TROPHIES

In 1896, my great-grandfather Johann Abt set up his own blacksmith’s workshop in Bavaria. His clear objective was the optimum transfer of horsepower to the road. This has remained true throughout the company’s 125-year history. Meanwhile, the blacksmith’s shop has become a high-end tuning facility. However, the founder’s pioneering spirit lives on – more than ever.

The ABT RS6 Johann Abt Signature Edition pays homage to our founder. 64 masterpieces, one for each year - hand crafted by our racing mechanics. The vehicles boast 800 HP and are the result of countless hours’ work. They each contain a unique relic from our history: a fragment of the original anvil from 1896*, preserved for eternity in a timecapsule.

It all started on this block of steel. On this, my great-grandfather realised his dreams. On this, he transformed his vision into innovation. An irreplaceable piece of history, that has now earned a worthy place for eternity. Not in a museum. But in the most exclusive ABT of all time.

1896

In the late 19th century, horse-drawn carriages were the means of transport in Bavaria. Unless it was snowing. Then people would use sledges. In Kempten and the surrounding areas, two methods of transport were required. It was complicated. Mainly because during the interim period, neither worked particularly well. That‘s why almost the entire region swore by a sophisticated skid system mounted under the carriage. The „Schutsche“ – invented by master craftsman Johann Abt. Back then, this combination of craftsmanship and innovation at the time ensured that more and more Allgäuer brought their beloved vehicles to the blacksmith’s workshop. Precisely this combination is the winning formula for our tuning facility today.

ABT FRONT SKIRT INSERTS

The Johann Abt Signature Edition’s oversized air inlets in conjunction with the signature red carbon structure create an aesthetic highlight. But it’s not just about looks: They also ensure optimum cooling of the equally oversized intercooler and further improve the engine’s performance.

JOHANN ABT SIGNATURE EDITION 22” FORGED RIM

As you would expect for an exclusive vehicle, the rims are also specially manufactured: With sporty spoke gaps, freely rotating hub covers and machined signature, the forged wheels emphasise the iconic look of the Johann Abt Signature Edition. At the same time, the glossy black rims – sporting 285/30 R22 tyres – dispense with any extra weight, as they provide a weight saving of 3.5 kg per wheel.

ABT REAR SKIRT INSERT

The rear skirt insert in signature carbon red is a real head turner. In addition, it is an essential component of the aerodynamic package, developed to the finest detail by our motorsport engineers over several months.

ABT REAR SPOILER

The side rear spoiler components in signature carbon red are connected to an exquisite black painted rear spoiler lip, and contribute to a significant increase in downforce. They ensure that the handcrafted unique cars remain stable and handle smoothly on the road, even at 330 km/h.

ABT GEARSHIFT PADDLES

For some, gearshift paddles are a means to an end. For our racing drivers, they are essential. As far as speed and driving pleasure are concerned, they play a central role. To underline their importance, we have extended the paddles slightly and finished them in signature carbon red.

ABT DOOR SILLS “SINCE 1896”

Every journey should be special. So we have placed great emphasis on making sure that the legacy of our founder resonates at every moment. This is illustrated upon entering the unique vehicle, by the illuminated founding year on the door sills.

ABT EMBLEM BAR VEHICLE NUMBERING “# OF 64”

The Johann Abt Signature Edition comprises 64 vehicles. The handcrafting makes each masterpiece unmistakeable. But the emblem bar on the dashboard makes it truly unique: Consecutive individual numbering means that each number occurs only once.

ABT SEAT FRAME COVERS

When tuning vehicles, we leave nothing to chance, but pay attention to every detail. With the Johann Abt Signature Edition, our perfectionism is of course particularly evident. For this reason, the red metallic thread of the carbon structure can also be found in the seat frame covers and the side dashboard covers.

ABT TIME CAPSULE

Johann Abt’s first anvil. It provided many years’ loyal service at the Bavarian master blacksmith’s workshop. Afterwards, it resided in the family archive - until its final destiny was determined: 64 metal fragments, preserved for eternity in 64 time capsules, make each vehicle unmistakeably unique.

WELCOME TO THE TUNING WORKSHOP.

In our sacred motorsport workshops, our mechanics usually work just on racing cars. For the Johann Abt Signature Edition, they are making an exception. Our experts have put all of their experience, engineering expertise and innovation into the 64 masterpieces. You can feel it at the first glance.

Good things come to those who wait. The best things come to those who wait a little longer. Our motorsports mechanics take all the time they need to meet their quality requirements. The result: Our master craftsmen complete six masterpieces per month. One man, one vehicle. From start to finish.

800 HP. HAND CRAFTED.

The Johann Abt Signature Edition comprises 64 masterpieces. But not only does it have a spiritual father, it also has a motorised offspring: the pilot series. It represents the culmination of many months of development and concentrated engineering skill. In the high-tech windtunnel in Stuttgart and on the High Speed Oval in Papenburg, our racing drivers have painstakingly tested these specifications in real-world conditions: Air resistance, top speed, downforce at 330 km/h, acceleration, lane changing, braking, handling and driving dynamics.

The results speak for themselves.

The Johann Abt Signature Edition accelerates without compromise. The High Speed Oval in Papenburg also shared this experience. From 0 to 100 km/h in 2.91 seconds* – a whole 0.69 seconds faster than a standard RS6. In addition, a maximum speed of 330 km/h*, which is essentially utopian for road vehicles, and an extremely usable rev range with over 980 Nm* of torque, peaking at 1,000 Nm*. The reason for this is hidden in the engine compartment: 589 kW* and 800 HP* performance, a huge 148 kW* or 200 HP* more than the standard model. Now we are bringing all this from the racetrack to the road.

Driving Car

The concentrated ABT technology under the hood makes it possible. To unleash the true power of the engine, in-house developed and manufactured intercoolers, turbochargers and the ABT Engine Control (AEC) control unit come into play. The oversized intercoolers provide a lower turbo air temperature across the entire operating range. To maintain a healthy engine temperature even at top speed,our motorsport mechanics have also installed an additional demand-driven oil cooling system. The whole package was extensively tested, safeguarded, verified, homologated and released.

You retain control of the vehicle at all times – thanks to balanced sports anti-roll bars, heightadjustable suspension springs and highly developed assistance systems. The racing gearshift and the personalised App combine to create an unrivalled driving experience.
