- The first Audi RS 6 and RS 7 performance have yet to be delivered to customers in the US, but once the models are out on the streets, ABT Sportsline will already be having a power upgrade available for those drivers, who feel that the twin-turbo V8 could do with a little bit more horsepower and torque.
- Through the separate ABT engine control unit, the output increases from 621 HP / 627 lb-ft to approx. 710 hp / 700 lb-ft.
Our latest generation control units are designed by our engineers to deliver the ideal performance for everyday use with the highest possible protection.
The ABT power upgrade can be ordered as a standalone product or as part of the latest special edition that ABT offers for the two high-performance Audi models: The RS 6 and RS 7 Legacy Edition. Limited to 200 units each, the ABT Legacy Edition offers a striking design paired with everyday usability. One of the aerodynamic highlights of the kit is the ABT carbon hood insert, which – in addition of being an eye-catcher – provides improved heat dissipation for the V8 bi-turbo engine. However, this is only a small part of the extensive aerodynamic kit that ABT has given the RS 6 and RS 7 performance. Numerous add-on parts made of visible carbon, such as the front lip, front skirt inserts, mirror caps, side skirt add-ons, rear skirt insert and a rear wing make it clear, that this is no longer an ordinary Audi. The exterior kit for the RS6-LE comes in regular carbon weave, while the RS7-LE features a “Signature Carbon Bold” surface.
For the appropriate orchestration, ABT provides a stainless-steel sport exhaust consisting of middle muffler and rear muffler, which ends in the distinctive ABT double end tips with a diameter of 4 inch / 102 mm.
ABT enhances the already high-quality interior of the RS 6 and RS 7 performance with Dinamica soul fabrics on the gearshift paddles, door sill trims and on the dashboard and seat frame trims. Also, part of the kit is the ABT steering wheel, that stands out due to the high-quality Alcantara finish and the sporty 12 o’clock marking in discreetly red stitching. Every ABT steering wheel has the full range of sensors, analog to the original Audi steering wheel.
To ensure that the performance of the Legacy Edition is perfectly transferred to the road, the RS6-LE and RS7-LE drive on lightweight ABT High Performance IR22 forged rims in Glossy Black. The wheels not only contribute to an improved road handling, but they make the car even more stand out with their dazzling 5-spoke design.
