The Audi tuners have returned with a wagon that packs a punch.
ABT Sportsline has a reputation
for being Audi specialists and for good reason - the German tuner's work usually comprises of exterior tweaks
for more aggressive styling
and changes to the engines for more power
. This program for the A6 Avant is no different. Dubbed the AS6 Avant, the wagon features unique programs for both its diesel and gasoline engines. The 3.0-liter TFSI supercharged V6 engine now cranks out an impressive 420hp and 398 lb-ft of torque.
The 3.0-liter TDI V6 diesel engine packs a 360hp punch with a crazy-for-a-wagon 516 lb-ft of torque. In comparison, the stock A6 Avant's V6 plant produces only 300hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. The exterior of the AS6 Avant features new aerodynamic pieces like front and rear spoilers, rear apron with dual exhaust outlets, side skirts and two suspension options. ABT is offering a conservative suspension with lowering springs for a sleeker profile along with an adjustable electric suspension with Level Control. Bigger brakes have been added to handle the wagon's increased power and sets of lightweight wheels, measuring from 19- to 21-inches, are available as well.
The ABT Sportsline package for the A6 Avant turns the ordinary (though impressive) wagon into an AS6 Avant monster of a machine. No pricing information has been released as of yet for the new tuning program.
