ABT Sportsline reveals new Audi A6 tuning programs


Following the same basic recipe as the ABT A7 revealed early last month, ABT Sportsline has now introduced a line of tuning programs for the all-new Audi A6. Making use of the company's POWER and POWER S tuning kits, ABT offers power upgrades for both the A6's 3.0 TDI and TFSI powerplants ranging from 282 to 410 horsepower. In addition to the upgraded styling and performance, the ABT A6 features all-new, "DR" design wheels.

As both the Audi A6 and A7 share the same 3.0-liter diesel and gasoline powerplants, engine tuning on the ABT A6 is identical to that of the ABT A7. In POWER form, the 3.0 TDI's horsepower gets a bump from 245 to 282 horsepower. With the addition of an upgraded turbocharger, ABT's POWER S program boosts the A6's 3.0 TDI to 310 horsepower with 450 lb/ft of torque and 410 horses from the 3.0 TFSI.

Outside, the ABT A6 sports an upgraded rear skirt with four-outlet exhaust, rear spoiler, front skirts and front spoiler; all working to accentuate Audi's latest generation design. "For us the A6 is an extravagant, straight-forward car, which doesn’t show off yet also doesn’t hide away," states ABT's General Manager, Hans-Jürgen Abt. "It is just the prefect choice for our demanding customers."

Rounding out the package are a set of newly designed wheels from ABT Sportsline. Known as the "DR" design, the new wheels feature a very unique, 3D rotational design and gun-metal finish. Available in sizes ranging from 19 to 21 inches, the "DR" wheel is in our opinion, the nicest design we've seen from the Bavarian tuner.

The new ABT A6 will make its official world debut at this week's 2011 Geneva Motor Show.
