ABT RS6-R: Elite Performance Wagon for Four People Plus Luggage

ABT will present a 200-mph Audi RS6-R model at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. The performance wagon squeezes 730 horsepower and 679 lb-ft of torque from its 4.0-liter V8 turbo.

When you read 730 hp (537 kW), you may first think of an Italian super-sports-car or a big truck but not of a roadworthy family or business estate. But the German tuner of vehicles from the Volkswagen Group is still able to surprise its target group and at the Geneva Motor Show 2014 will present its latest Audi RS6 model, the ABT RS6-R.

"Mind you, the R stands for racy, not for rough or rude," says CEO Hans-Jurgen Abt: "As with the normal Audi RS6, ours also provides the utmost comfort, sumptuousness and usefulness, limited to 25 cars worldwide."

To turn this high-performance car into a refined gem, ABT uses ABT Power. This kit includes the ABT Engine Control unit, a specially developed software and a specially adapted stainless steel exhaust system - including a Y-pipe and sport-type catalytic converter - that makes for a superb sound and an even more attractive look with its two double end pipes.

But power isn't everything. In order to make the Avant even more of a sports car, the engineers used an ABT height adjustable spring kit. Dunlop high-performance tires specially selected for the RS6-R complete this dynamic set-up. This inviting features may make it hard for some people to accept that this racy ABT in Geneva can only be viewed while it is standing still. But that may be just as well, because it makes for a better appreciation of the extensive body kit and the lavish 22-inch ABT DR alloy wheels. Selected parts made of exposed red carbon is what all body components have in common: they can be found on the front lip with its blades, air inlet covers including flics, side skirt attachments with side blades and the rear skirt. Mirror caps, fender inserts and a rear spoiler complete the imposing look.

And since passengers would find it difficult to see their car in the rear-view mirror, ABT also "decorated" the interior with letterings and embroidery that are as discreet as they are tasteful. Carbon-shift paddles and LED-shifting lights on the steering wheel help finding the perfect gear shift moment.
