ABT Sportsline has released a new special edition model based on the facelifted Audi RS4 Avant.
Called the ABT RS4-S, it features a power upgrade, a comprehensive aero package, 21-inch alloys, different suspension options and new interior components. Starting off in the engine compartment, the RS4 Avant’s 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 has been given the ABT Engine Control unit which boosts the maximum power to 510 PS (503 HP) and the peak torque to 660 Nm (487 lb-ft).
These are increases of 60 PS (59 HP) and 60 Nm (44 lb-ft) over the standard car and improve the sprint from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) by one tenth of a second to 3.9 seconds. If that’s not fast enough, the tuner also offers the ABT Power S upgrade which takes the V6 to 530 PS (523 HP) and 680 Nm (501 lb-ft) of torque. Upon request, this power kit also unlocks the top speed increase to 300 km/h (186 mph).
