German tuner ABT has unleashed the Audi RS6-R Avant at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The high performance wagon is wearing a Daytona grey matt paint job and the car is based on the facelifted RS6 Avant but has received a plethora of upgrades both inside and out. It has gained a more aggressive and aerodynamic body kit with some of the parts made from carbon fiber to shave off weight. Moreover, it now sits on massive 22-inch alloy wheels which make their debut on this model.
Perhaps even more impressive is the fact that ABT has managed to squeeze no less than 730 HP (412 kW) for this Audi RS6-R Avant compared to the series production model which delivers “only” 560 HP (412 kW). It was all possible by implementing the ABT Power S system which encompasses an ABT Engine Control unit that has specially developed software.
Moreover, the Audi RS6-R Avant has gained a specially adapted stainless steel exhaust system that has two double tailpipes generating “a roaring sound”. It rides on high-performance tires from Dunlop and benefits from height adjustable suspension springs while the interior cabin has also received an extensive makeover.
According to ABT, their Audi RS6 Avant consumes 13.4 liters / 100 km in the city, 7.4 liters / 100 km on the highway and 9.6 liters / 100 km in the combined cycle, with combined CO2 emissions standing at 223 g/km.
