Last year, the new Audi A6 and A7 appeared on the scene powered by Audi’s 3.0 TDI, which has 286 PS (210 kW) . ahead of the Geneva International Motor Show, ABT has announced a power upgrade for the engine, based on the auxiliary ABT Engine Control (AEC) unit. It reaches 330 PS (243 kW) across the board. The torque in the two Audis increases from 620 to 670 Nm.
“Many of our customers want something beyond the 300 HP threshold, which also has a psychological aspect,” explains CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt. The AEC, specially developed by the Bavarian tuner, provides maximum reliability and optimum power delivery. This is ensured by complex calibration runs on the chassis dynamometer and on public roads as well as comprehensive measures for engine protection and extensive warranties.
But ABT Sportsline does not just make the Audi A6 and A7 faster, it also gives the cars a more dynamic look. The world’s largest tuner for Volkswagen and Audi vehicles offers an exciting selection of rims for all three as part of its extensive range: www.abt-sportsline.com/tuning/configurator/.
The Bavarian experts are currently sprucing up an A6 Avant 3.0 TDI to be presented at the Geneva International Motor Show from March 7 to 17, 2019 – hall 1, booth 1244. The glacier-white vehicle is fitted with the 9.5 x 21 inch ABT FR rims in mystic black, with the corresponding 255/35 R21 tires from partner Continental. An extensive aero package is also installed: It includes the ABT front spoiler with a glossy black air inlet panel, the ABT rear skirt set featuring a diffuser in the same colour and matt black tailpipe trims as the distinguishing features of the speedy station wagon. With its mighty torque and plenty of horsepower, it is a joy to drive even on Swiss freeways with strict speed limits – because the true experience here is the acceleration. 100 km/h, for example, can be reached in just 5.5 seconds – around two tenths earlier than with the production version. The Audi A7 achieves the same head start.
