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.
