SPORTY, BUT ECONOMICAL: EVEN MORE DIESEL VERSIONS FOR THE ABT AS6
Clean lines in design, workmanship and technology for premium demands – this is what is typical for the Audi A6, no matter whether you choose a Saloon, an Avant or the versatile Allroad. Drivers who would like their elegant ride to be even sportier go for the ABT AS6. The engineers of the largest tuning company for cars from the Volkswagen Group have developed performance upgrades which highlight the characteristic features of this exceptional car even more and boost its sportiness and dynamism. The A6 version from ABT is an exceptionally elegant possibility for experiencing maximum driving enjoyment in everyday life.
The diesel engines are particularly economical and have enormous speed reserves at the same time. The 3.0 TDI is the flagship of the Audi A6, which the Bavarian company offers in various versions. With ABT POWER, 204 HP (150 kW) are transformed into a powerful 270 HP (199 kW). Depending on the respective standard power, ABT POWER “New Generation” can achieve even more: 300 HP (221 kW) for the low-end diesel model with 245 HP (180 kW) or 360 HP (265 kW) for the 313-HP standard diesel model provide more than an extra touch of sportiness. Customers who choose the strongest version of the large diesel engine are rewarded with a gigantic torque of 700 Nm and predominance in any situation. But also the 2.0 TDI boasts great power: 205 HP or 151 kW (standard: 177 HP/130 kW) bring the ABT AS6 up to speed with a vengeance. It depends on many different factors whether you choose a diesel engine or a petrol-driven car, but the 3.0 TFSI definitely is the highlight when it comes to engines for the AS6: 420 HP or 309 kW (standard: 300 HP/221 kW) can satisfy any desire for power.
The ABT AS6 not only is an elegant extreme athlete, but actually looks like one. The designers developed aerodynamics components, which not only make the A6 Saloon and the Avant look more confident and powerful, but improve their driving behaviour in addition. Front spoiler, side skirts, rear spoiler and the rear skirt set with exhaust tips form a visual and technical unity and harmonise with the design vocabulary of the AS6. ABT suspension springs or electronic lowering by means of ABT Level Control for cars equipped with air springs make sure that sporting spirit and comfort are not mutually exclusive. The performance braking system provides safety, even in extreme situations, and is a perfect match for the enormous potential of the car. The performance rims from ABT are the perfect “finish” for the look of the A6. The CR and DR models in 19 to 21 inches communicate the car’s enormous need for speed, even while standing still. Matching complete wheel sets with high-performance tyres are available in addition. They are an absolute must for the ABT AS6 due to its extremely sporty design.
