Audi RS6 Avant 2020 from ABT or the feisty super-versatile 690 hpFebruary 4, 2020
Tuning company ABT is preparing a major upgrade for the German wagon Audi RS6 Avant 2020. The final version of the upgraded car will be shown in April this year. Well, now they tell us about the intermediate result.
Few generalists in the world can boast such a powerful “stuffing” as the current generation Audi RS6 Avant. This car has long been a true superstar in the world of high-performance cars. Its engine in a standard form can give out 591 horsepower. The car accelerates and at the same time sounds like a real supercar, not a station wagon. In addition, the car boasts a comfortable five-seater cabin.
But despite this, the German tuning studio ABT decided once again to make this car even better, and by that we mean faster.
The new ABT RS6-R project was announced back in December last year, and will not be fully presented until April. But now, the ABT guys have raised the power of the 4.0-liter Twin-Turbo V8 engine to 690 hp. ABT does not offer complete information about what has been changed in the design of the motor, but it is known that the engine received a new control unit with clearly more “aggressive” software than what you get from the factory.
In addition, ABT mentions “a range of engine protection measures to ensure you enjoy driving without harming the motor.” Regarding this pleasure, ABT says the tuned RS6 Avant accelerates to 100 km / h in 3.3 seconds, which is a very fast acceleration. There is no mention of whether the motor has a speed limiter or not. There are also no references to changes in the design of the suspension.
It is not known whether the performance of the station wagon, which will be shown to us in April, will receive more power, but we will not be surprised if this happens. At least, previous projects of the ABT tuner based on the RS6 station wagon almost always had a power of 700+ hp.
