German tuner ABT Sportsline is to launch its latest ABT RS4-R at the 88th Geneva Motor Show (March 8 to 18, 2018). The powerful Avant delivers 530 PS (390 kW) and 690 Nm. That is 20 PS more than the strongest previous ABT RS4 and 80PS more than the standard Audi RS4’s 2.9 litre biturbo V6.
ABT Sportsline relies on a multi-stage performance package for the RS4-R. This consists of an additional engine control unit, the ABT Engine Control (AEC), and a high-performance sports exhaust system. For added visual and acoustic appeal it features four 102 mm carbon tailpipes. The car also comes equipped with an extensive aerodynamic package, including ABT Front Lip, Front Flics, a Front Grille with RS4-R logo and Rear Skirt. Massive 21 inch ABT SPORT GR alloy rims sport 275/25 ZR21 tyres.
Handling upgrades from the Bavarian tuning company include ABT Sport Stabilizers and ABT Height Adjustable Suspension Springs. A complete coilover suspension system with a special ABT Shock Absorber Setup is also under development, in cooperation with the partner KW automotive. This setup provides a sporty-dynamic driving experience without neglecting the required comfort.
The interior design includes partial leather seats with a prominent RS5-R Logo, ABT Gear Shift Cover in carbon and many other extras.
