ABT Sportline tuning package for Audi A6 Avant

The ABT AS6 Avant represents a fast luxury sportline tuning package for Audi A6 Avant, designed for offering comfort in long journeys. the first impression that5 this car is offering is a strong one, trough its self-confident lines and the typical ABT view. The provided performance is even better: thanks to ABT POWER, it has a 3-liter cubic capacity with 300 HP/221 kW for its top versions, and 204 HP/150 kW for the 3.0 TDI models. The ABT AS6 Avant goes from 0 to 100 km/h in no less than five seconds.

The "Estate of the Art" in sport - the new ABT AS6 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-J?rgen 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 N?rburgring. 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.
