Audi RS6-R Avant By ABT Is The Meanest Super Wagon Of Them All

[UPDATE] ABT has unveiled extra details about its newest wagon rocket, which does the to sixty two mph (one hundred km/h) dash in only 3.two seconds or .4s more quickly than the stock design. Best velocity has been enhanced to 199 mph (320 km/h) or nine mph (fifteen km/h) extra than right before. The bundle costs €69,900 (about $seventy five,600).

It was only final week when the German tuners at ABT unleashed an angry Audi RS7 Sportback and now they are turning their interest in direction of its wagon counterpart. The new RS6-R was teased again in early December 2019 and it’s lastly ready to clearly show off its intense stance many thanks to a new body package with various add-ons built from carbon fiber to continue to keep pounds in test.

As if the conventional RS6 Avant wasn’t already a menacing beast among wagons, ABT has slapped on a spoiler lip at the front and a redesigned diffuser at the again, alongside with fender inserts and aspect skirt attachments. There are no much less than 10 new exterior components for the Mercedes-AMG E63 Estate competitor, as well as the tuner’s have 22-inch alloy wheels to round off the seem. Optionally, all those oddly intriguing aero wheels are obtainable.

At the again of the prolonged-roof Audi, the RS-particular twin oval suggestions have built way for a extra in-your-deal with quad set up with carbon suggestions as aspect of ABT’s stainless metal exhaust program. The speedy Avant has gained a tweaked suspension to boost managing even though the motor vehicle is powering pushed tricky by way of the corners.

Substantially like with the aforementioned RS7 Sportback, the twin-turbo 4.-liter V8 generates a mighty 730 hp and 920 Newton-meters (679 pound-feet) of torque. We’ll remind the conventional design is not just underpowered, offering 591 hp and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) for a to sixty two mph (one hundred km/h) in 3.6 seconds and a best velocity capped at one hundred ninety mph (305 km/h). The dash from a standstill need to now be completed even more quickly thinking of the substantial energy gains, as a result further more having the high-functionality wagon further more into supercar territory even while it weighs about two metric tons in conventional kind.

ABT hasn’t unveiled pricing details, but it does point out only one hundred twenty five RS6 Avants will be transformed to the RS6-R specification. In the United States, the frequent design kicks off from an eye-watering $109,000.

The Kempten-based aftermarket experts have a delicate place for the RS6 Avant as they’ve crafted some astounding machines in latest several years. We’ll only remind you of the RS6 Avant Performance Nogaro Edition that was essentially offered immediately by Audi with practically seven hundred on tap, and the even crazier 1,018-hp RS6-E hybrid.
