Generations: ABT’s legacy with Audi from ur-quattro to RS

words: Aaron Plante, photos: ABT Sportsline Editor’s note: This article originally ran in the Q1_2019 issue of quattro magazine. It was in the 80s, with the unveiling of the ur quattro at the Geneva motor show, that transitioned Audi from automotive marque curiosity to a direct competitor for chief German luxury rivals BMW and Mercedes-Benz. The Ingolstadt-based automaker introduced their legendary 5-cylinder, 200 horsepower, angular coupe to the world with something until then unseen… q...

ABT Presenting The Speed-Style A6 3.0 TDI in Geneva

source: ABT Sportsline Ok...let's get this out of the way. We know we do not get the TDI in the States/Canada and probably will not see a new one in the future but we may get the A6 Avant so this still applies (at least in terms of everything but the engine management)? The Jet d’Eau fountain with its up to 140 meters (460 ft) high and bright white water jet is the best known attraction of Lake Geneva: Thanks to a pump performance of 1,000 kW, the cool water is jetted upwards with ...

Luckily, that c...

Iconic ABT quattro Meets Great-Grandchild – The ABT RS5-R

source: ABT Sportsline The Audi quattro presented in 1980 is the "godfather" in the history of Audi all-wheel-drive sport models. It is what other racers from the brand have to live up to. With regard to the engine, the 20V with 220 HP (162 kW), which was introduced in 1989, was the benchmark after the exclusive Sport quattro. The former can be found in the ABT Sportsline museum in Bavaria – in a good, but certainly not the standard production condition. "Back then, we tuned the ...

The ABT Audi SQ5 with 425 HP and The Dream of Flying

source: ABT Sportsline Even if it might seem quite obvious for the ABT Audi SQ5: The category designation "sport utility vehicle" has nothing to do with the engine power of 425 HP (313 kW) or with the wide-body aerodynamics package, which ensures a particularly sporty appearance. The SUV name is rather an American term where it is used to designate vehicles for leisure and sports. As this also included hunting and fishing, a certain level of off-road capability was also assumed. Admittedl...
