The Audi S4 Avant is one of my personal favorite cars on the road. As an everyday driver, it’s pretty much perfect. It’s got the looks, the luxury, the performance and the practicality to be used every day, all the time, in almost any possible scenario. It’s just a brilliant car. When it’s tuned by ABT, it gets even more power and more aggressive looks. So when a black on black ABT-tuned Audi S4 Avant goes playing in the snow, we take notice.
In this new video from Auditography, we see just that. This ABT Audi S4 Avant has been tuned to make quite a bit more power. So its 3.0 liter turbocharged V6 engine makes a whopping 425 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque. That’s quite a bit bump up from the stock car’s 354 hp and 369 lb-ft. There isn’t a quoted 0-60 mph time but it should be around the low four-second range, rather than the low five-second range of the stock car. The ABT-tuned S4 makes almost exactly the same power and torque figures as the much more expensive BMW M3 and that car does 0-60 mph in around 4.1 seconds with just rear-wheel drive. So this ABT Audi S4 Avant should be even quicker still. This video shows off some of that performance, by showing it rev up and accelerate to about 150 mph. It’s a quick car.
We also get to hear what it sounds like, thanks to the new exhaust ABT installed. It sounds good and more aggressive than the standard car. Although, the standard S4 already sounds pretty good. Neither the stock nor the tuned version of the Audi S4 Avant will ever sound as good as the old 4.2 liter naturally-aspirated V8 but ABT does their best to make the new S4 sounds pretty good.
This video also shows off just how good it looks. Wearing black paint and black leather, it looks positively menacing in the snow. The black grille, black wheels and black paint give off such an angry, tough vibe in contrast to the white snow. It’s just an awesome car in an awesome environment. Check it out.
