Audi’s medium-sized cars have been a success story for more than 30 years now, first with the Audi 80 and from 1994 onwards with the A4. And ABT Sportsline has dedicated itself to these models right from the start. So it is only logical that at the Geneva Motor Show this year a new ABT AS4 is going to be presented. After all, ABT celebrates its 120th birthday and for most of that time – since the early 1920s, to be precise – a partnership with Audi and its four predecessors has existed.
ABT ENGINE TECHNOLOGY
3.0 TDI, 2.967 cc capacity, V6
ABT POWER „New Generation“
325 HP/ 239 kW (Serial: 272 HP/ 200 kW)
680 Nm (Serial: 600 Nm)
To make the AS4 put its power perfectly on the black top, ABT has given the unobtrusively racy Avant height adjustable suspension springs. This makes it corner as if it’s on rails. In conjunction with the wheel spacers, the lowered CoG perfectly fits into the customised aerodynamics package, which includes a front skirt add on including air inlet grilles, a front grille add on, fender inserts and a rear skirt set with the characteristic four-pipe exhaust pipes.
