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 ...

Motor Authority: Decision To Bring Audi RS 6, A6 Avant To US Coming Soon

source: Motor Authority Audi plans to make a decision on whether it will introduce a new generation of the A6 Avant and the hotter RS 6 Avant for the U.S. market soon. CarBuzz initially reported in January that its own source was told by Audi executives that the company had given both wagon models the green light for the U.S., and that they will arrive with the next RS 7 Sportback. However, Audi spokesman Mark Dahncke told Motor Authority on Monday that information is not correct. He s...

Motor1.com: New Audi A4 allroad Spied For The First Time

source: Motor1.com The beefy A4 will either be a 2020 or 2021 model. We know Audi has a major facelift coming for the A4. We caught our first glimpse of the camouflaged sedan and wagon last month, and now spy photographers captured the elusive allroad model testing in the snowy white north. At a quick glance this could almost be mistaken for the A4 Avant we saw previously – the camouflage pattern matches, as well as the wheels and even the location for the photos. There are some ke...

Limited Special Edition With Up To 530 HP: The New ABT RS4+

source: ABT Sportsline Yeah yeah...I know we don't get the magnificent RS 4 here in the States (but rumors of the RS 6 coming soon abound) and we certainly don't get the monstrous ABT RS4+ but we can enjoy some great photos of the RS4+ in the snow, can't we?

Find of the Day: 1994 Audi S2 Avant

words: Bill, photos: Autoscout24.com I know I've mentioned this ad nauseam but you can import RS2s into the States now that it's 2019. Hurray but only if you have the money to find one that isn't beat. However, there is a consolation prize and in itself, not a bad prize at all. The RS2's little brother is the S2. Unlike the Avant only RS2, the S2 came in an Avant, coupe, and the very rare sedan version. I've picked the Avant because who doesn't love Avants? Powered by a 230hp 2.2L turbo 5, it'...

Autoblog: 2020 Audi A4 Avant Spy Photos Show Yet Another Refresh

source: Autoblog Audi just showed a refreshed A4 back in June, but the company apparently still feels the design won't be up-to-date when sharing showroom space with the new A8, A7 and A6. We know this because one of our spy photographers caught the above A4 Avant example testing with yet another new front fascia. This update is more dramatic, but it's still just a mild refresh overall.... Read the rest of the story HERE

Find of the Day: 1994 S4 Avant (C4)

photos: suchen.mobile.de Yesterday, a 1993 Ur-S4 with just under 12,000 miles sold on Bring A Trailer for $33,000. Thirty...three...thousand...dollars.  With this in mind, I decided to search the sites for a similar S4 to see how much people were asking for them but then I ran across this. This is a 1994 C4 S4 Avant. While it's not a low mileage example (205,631 kms/127,773 miles), it is slightly more affordable at €6,000 ($7,742) and in my opinion, a more desirable ...

This one can be had for quite a bit less and it's a 1994 model which means you only have to wait a couple of months to legally import it to the States. Located in Amsterdam at De Automobielfabriek, this RS 2 has 126,395 km (78,538 miles) and can be had for significantly less that the Polar Silver...

[source: ABT Sportsline] With 530 HP (390 kW) and an impressive 690 Nm torque, the ABT RS4-R leaves almost everyone in its wake.

RS 4 Times Three: ABT Reveals Tuning Secrets From Different Generations

[source: ABT] Everything began in 1994 with the RS2, which is not included here. Porsche gave the compact Audi 80 Avant 315 turbo-horsepower (232 kW), driving any trace of conservativeness from the car. The idea of a sportscar in the body of a station wagon was born. “Today, I see one of the greatest advantages of this model in the fact that it looks like a normal family car but offers the driving performance of a pure sportscar,” rally driver Walter Röhrl said back in the day. 2,8...

Find of the Day: 2002 Audi S6 Avant – Big Turbos and Manual Transmission
