I think wAll can agree that Audi’s RS6 Avant is one of the coolest cars of the past decade. What’s not to like about a twin-turbo V8 AWD? big wagon? Well, okay, it would be better if it had a manual transmission. And available in brown color. Where were we? Oh that’s right! ABT Sportsline is here to turn that big wagon into a super wagon. Wagon? The 25-piece ABT Audi RS6+ is what happens when a long-standing tuning company gets to work on every system in a car. Badassery.
Immediately notable is the carbon fiber exterior and trim package. It’s spacious, as you’d expect. This car is all about excess, and in the end it has carbon on the front lip, canards, mirrors, grille trim, side skirts, rear frills and roof spoiler. All those carbon trims are gloss coated, so you can impress everyone at autos and coffees.
It’s clear that this car is more than just good looks, as it enhances the handling of already successful Audis. ABT has also equipped the car with stiff anti-roll bar for better performance on the track. To keep the vehicle firmly attached to the road, a set 22-inch wheels and bolted adhesive tires, one to every corner. It doesn’t hurt that the wheels look pretty cool.
The biggest part of the package that you’ll notice from behind the wheel is the increase in power. Thankfully, ABT didn’t have to change too many turbochargers for this RS6+, as the engine is still completely factory-made. With only one stainless cat-back exhaust to release some back pressure and provide some large 4-inch tips in the rear, and a “sophisticated ABT Engine Control”, the 4-liter V8 with up to 690 hp and 649 lb-ft of torque when you fill up on gas. tank with high test. That’s an impressive jump over the 591 horsepower and 590 foot-lubs that Audi gives you.
The Last Pieces of the puzzle found in special interior components that ABT has blanked out. The gearshift knob, gearshift lever behind the wheel and dashboard trim have been replaced with carbon fiber to give a visual interior hint of what you’re driving. Type in a number “1 out of 25”“The door sills and floor mats are distinctive RS6+, and you’ve got a taste that this is more than just a ‘normal’ RS6.
ABT doesn’t specify exactly how much the plus package will cost, but if it does, the lower-end RS6-S package (which includes carbon trim, wheels, anti-roll bars and sports exhaust) will get you running $36,500. Make an extra $10,000 for the interior and 100-horsepower front end, and you’re probably on the right ballpark. So that’s about $45k on your already $116,000 Audi wagon, but with only 25 built, you’re unlikely to see another on the street. And, I mean, can you think of a better dad cell phone?
