The ABT AS6-R is two cars in one: a dynamic Nurburgring racer and a real
family estate car.
"This car provides both the space and the power to get anything from A to B. And why not via the Nurburgring's famous 'Nordschleife'?" says Hans-Jürgen Abt, the CEO of the globally largest tuner of cars produced by the Volkswagen Group.
Just look at the figures. This estate's original power was 420 hp (309 kW), ABT increased it to no less than 600 hp (441 kW). The impressive extra power of almost 43 % is made possible by the innovative ABT POWER S technology. The optimized engine control unit aside, the ABT Turbo Chargers render the ABT AS6-R a really roadworthy dependable and superior racing car. With a torque of 546 lb-ft (750 Nm), the eight-cylinder engine will show its power especially when the car has to carry something. The acceleration makes sport drivers hearts' beat faster: the ABT AS6-R reaches 60 mph in no more than 3.8 sec, 124 mph in 12.9 sec, and its top speed is an electronically controlled (310 km/h). So you better fix your load. The ABT development features 40 hp more than the new original Audi RS6.
The ABT AS6-R is a technical masterpiece and was subjected to endurance tests both on the road and on the test bench. After all, this car is supposed to last a lifetime.
When the ABT AS6-R is standing still, one is able to appreciate the exposed carbon on the front bumper, the mirrors, side skirts and the rear spoiler. Add to this the stainless-steel exhaust system and one knows what an expressive look this "express truck" has. Just one look at the rear end, outlined by the four pipes, will make onlookers see the car's sporty character.
The design is perfectly "rounded off" by the sporty and filigree ABT DR gun-metal sport-type wheels. On the ABT AS6-R, they are mounted in fitting 9 x 21 inches with 265/30 ZR21 tires. With its five dynamically bent double spokes, the extremely light wheel suggests motion; the unsprung masses have been optimized for high speeds.
