ABT Sportsline now offering two performance kits for Audi A6 Avant

Article by Anita Panait, on April 13, 2012

Naturally versatile thanks to its light metal construction, the new Audi A6 Avant is the ideal tuning basis, according to Hans-Jürgen Abt, chief executive of ABT Sportsline. Because of its versatile and stylish characteristics, ABT Sportsline was able to develop performance packages and upgrades for the A6 Avant. ABT Sportsline is currently offering two power levels in its tuning program for the new AS6 Avant: one for the gasoline-powered version and another for the diesel-powered variant. 

Both upgrades take the A6 Avant to a new level, improving its performance as well as its looks. The ABT POWER package for the gasoline-ran A6 Avant improves the performance of the car’s 3.0 TFSI engine from a standard output of 300 HP/221 kW and 440 Nm of torque to a dazzling 420 HP or 309 kW and a maximum torque of 540 Nm. The 420 hp output, a 40% upgrade from the production version, give the Audi A6 Avant enough power to rival extreme sports cars.

Meanwhile, the ABT POWER package for the diesel-ran A6 Avant hikes the performance of the car’s 3-liter bi-turbo engine from a standard output of 313 HP/230 kW and 650 Nm of torque to a dynamic 360 HP or 265 kW and a maximum torque of 700 Nm. ABT Sportsline’s package also includes lowering the springs or electronic lowering A6 Avant’s barycentre through the ABT Level Control, resulting in a dynamic performance on the road.

ABT also made some tweaks on the A6 Avant’s exterior looks by fitting side skirts, a front spoiler and a rear spoiler. AVT also fitted a new rear skirt set with two powerful double end pipes for more dynamic looks.  Abt remarked that his company, ABT Sportsline, has been tuning Audi Avants cars for 35 years. The chief executive of the renowned German tuner recalled his company tuning the Audi 100 C2, which was rolled out in 1977 as Avant.

Amazing what it can do: the ABT AS6 Avant is a fast luxury liner which likes going on long journeys. Both sporty and dynamic, it offers driving pleasure - its excellent comfort ensures that this pleasure remains even on long trips. And in the rear it impresses with large luggage space as well as the typical ABT view of four exhaust pipes. "This estate stands for lifestyle and power. Which is also going to be honoured by the driver behind you", Hans-Jürgen Abt clarifies. The CEO of the now 115 years old company adds: "The vehicle shows all of our experience in tuning."

The AS6 Avant is certainly self-confident, no question. But it also acts elegant and classy, and looks just as good outside the opera as well as at the car park of the Nürburgring. The fact that its home is originally on the race track is clear from the three swift letters: A-B-T. The performance data speaks the same language: the most powerful turbo diesel with three litre cubic capacity provides 300 HP/221 kW thanks to ABT POWER (series-standard: 245 HP/180 kW). The weaker version of the 3.0 TDI now provides 240 HP or 177 kW (series-standard: 204 HP/150 kW). The AS6 Avant provides the maximum sports combination with the performance-improved V6 gasoline engine: the Kempten engineers have conjured up a huge 420 HP (309 kW) from the basic version's sporty 300 HP. The versatile premium class fun estate, is also capable of a strong sprint: the ABT AS6 Avant sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in exactly five seconds.

Optically the estate looks decent and extravagant, and appears confident and powerful from all sides: the sidebars and front spoiler harmonise with the elongated contours of the vehicle. The crowning feature is the rear spoiler and the rear apron set with four exhaust pipes. The design of the ABT AS6 Avant also includes light-metal designer wheels, which are available in 19, 20 and powerful 21 inch sizes. It goes without saying that ABT also offers alloys in combination with high-speed tyres which suit the car's performance potential.

Whatever engine the customer chooses - he/she always gets a balanced vehicle which meets the highest demands: everyday reliability and suitability for long journeys in combination with maximum sportiness characterise the new ABT AS6 Avant. After all you don't want to go without comfort and luxury just because you are in a particular hurry.
