(from ABT Press Release) The new ABT AS6 Avant – built sportive in a superior way

Light metal construction was used consistently for the new Audi A6 Avant – this saves fuel and makes the estate car even more sportive. Therefore the vehicle is the ideal tuning basis, as Hans-Jürgen Abt CEO of the long established Bavarian company stressed: "The car is characteristically versatile, stylish and dynamic – and we have tied performance packages which are perfectly suitable to it." The manager of ABT Sportsline mentions the long tradition in tuning the A6 estate cars quite casually: “The history began with the introduction of the Audi 100 C2, which hit the market in 1977 as Avant. With the new AS6 Avant we look back on 35 successful years in the segment of the noble lifestyle-transporter."

At the moment ABT has two power levels in its program for the new AS6 Avant - and both ensure that the all-round premium-automobile performs powerfully and superior in every situation. Thanks to ABT POWER the 3.0 TFSI offers a proud 420 HP or 309 kW (production version: 300 HP/221 kW) and a maximum torque of 540 Nm (standard: 440 Nm). 120 additional horsepower (88 kW) results in 40 percent additional power and – if it should go even faster – has the driving properties of an extreme sports car. Frequent drivers are quite economically on the way with the new 3-liter bi-turbo diesel engine: A maximum power of 360 HP or 265 kW (production version: 313 HP/230 kW) and a maximum torque of 700 Nm (standard: 650 Nm) is provided in the AS6 Avant. Thanks to the ABT lowering springs or the electronic lowering of the vehicle's barycentre with the help of the ABT Level Control the noble estate car brings the plus in performance at all times on the road.

One should also see what is contained in a "real ABT" in the new AS6 Avant. Therefore the designers took care of the elongated body and purposefully provided for a still more self-confident appearance: Side skirts, a front spoiler as well as a rear spoiler and a new rear skirt set with two powerful double end pipes clearly show for more presence and extreme dynamic optics. The sportive impression is strengthened with the ABT sports rims. ABT recommends the CR and DR model which harmonises particularly well with the silhouette of the Avant. The wheels are available in 19 up to 21 inch and naturally also in combination with high speed tyres. Transportation was seldom more attractive and faster…
