ABT Audi RS6 Avant Johann Abt Signature Edition added power to 790 hp


It reaches 62 mph in 2.91 seconds. The Audi RS6 Avant is already one of the coolest station wagons in the world, but ABT wants to make it even more special with the Johann Abt Signature Edition.

Limited to just 64 cars, it marks 125 years since the Abt family opened their workshop in 1886. The RS6 Avant Johann Abt Signature Edition develops 790 horsepower (589 kilowatts). Usually the torque is 980 Nm, but it can reach 1000 Nm.

By comparison, the standard RS6 Avant develops 591bhp. (441 kW) and 590 800 Nm. This power pushes the tuned Abt station wagon to 100 kilometers per hour in 2.91 seconds, up from 3.6 seconds for the standard version. It can also accelerate to 200 km / h in 9.79 seconds and 300 km / h in 28.35 seconds. To make the RS6 Avant much faster, ABT is installing in-house developed turbochargers, larger intercoolers and an optional oil cooling system. There is also a custom engine control unit.

The new exhaust system features four matte black stainless steel tailpipes with a diameter of 102 millimeters. ABT also features height-adjustable suspension including new anti-roll bars. The redesigned bodywork features a new front fascia and rear elements that are made of carbon fiber with a red metallic thread weave.

It rides on 22-inch forged wheels, each weighing just 3.5kg (7.72lb). The cabin is more carbon fiber with a reddish tint.

The seats, doors, armrests and sills bear the inscription “Since 1896”. Ironically, each of the 64 machines comes with a time capsule that contains a fragment of an anvil from the original Abt family workshop.

Meanwhile, Mansory has unveiled its own tuning project for the Porsche Taycan. Interestingly, the innovations turned out to be not as serious as this tuning studio usually does.
