For the first time ever the legendary five-door Avant is available in North America in limited quantities, presenting ABT Sportsline with the opportunity to extend its famous ABT RS6-R to this important market as well. The very first completed RS6-R in North America was built by ABT’s longtime partner Pacific German in Laguna Hills, California.
Of course, the ABT RS6-R demands exceptional visual enhancements. The German company from Bavaria has developed high-quality ABT Aerodynamic carbon fiber components which give the RS6-R’s front in particular an even more aggressive and striking appearance. Besides other parts ABT has created a front lip, front grille frame add-on, rear skirt add-on, side skirt attachments and a new rear spoiler. The limited quantity of the RS6-R is immortalized in the ABT door sills mentioning the “1 of 125” units and a badge on the dashboard.
At the rear, the stainless steel ABT exhaust system with 4 carbon end pipes emphasizes the sporty character of the car. This is further highlighted by the weight-optimized 22-inch ABT High Performance HR wheels that are manufactured via a flowforming process.
Optional ABT interior upgrades are also available like carbon dashboard covers and seat frame covers. Bringing the thus upgraded Avant to the road with as much fun as possible is the duty of the ABT Power which boosts the performance of the standard model from 591 hp and 590 lb-ft to 690 hp and 649 lb-ft.*
