Looking at this ABT revised Audi RS6 Avant, I can only imagine taking a long drive down the coast and enjoy that engine’s sound. In the meantime, back in the real world, I have to tell you that the tuner has been working on a power boost program for the Audi to be revealed at next month’s Geneva Motor Show.

ABT engineers had impressed everyone last July, when the Audi RS6 Avant received an upgrade kit, which resulted in a V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine that developed 666 HP (490 kW) and 830 Nm (612 lb-ft). The kit was improved later that year, so that the Audi’s engine featured 700 HP (515 kW) and 880 Nm (649 lb-ft).

So, this would be the third time ABT improve upon their own work – now, that’s having high standards. This new package lifts output of the Audi 8-cylinder engine to 730 HP (537 kW) and 920 Nm (678 lb-ft), a great improvement to the stock provided 560 HP (412 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of the Ingolstadt built vehicle.

But this Audi will be owned by only 25 lucky Petrol-heads, ABT says. Aside from the significant power increase, the cars will also feature a full body kit and 22-inch alloy wheels wrapped around in 295/25 ZR22 Dunlop tires. Adding to that, the high-performance wagon will also be equipped with a custom stainless steel exhaust system, a height-adjustable spring kit and a tweaked cabin with bespoke floor mats, sports steering wheel – featuring LED shifting lights and shift paddles –  along with red carbon fiber applications and embroidered headrests. Any questions, besides how to get one?
