ABT pushes the Audi RS6 and RS7 to their limits, with preparation offering them no less than 1,000 horsepower and 1,150 Nm of torque!
Last year, Audi unveiled a more powerful version of its Audi RS6 et RS7called “Performance”: this offers a power of 630 horsepower for 850 Nm of torque to the 4.0 liter TFSI engine, a cavalry already impressive on paper.
ABT Sportsline, a company specializing in the preparation of models from the Volkswagen group, and more precisely from the Audi, Volkswagen, Seat, Cupra, Škoda and Lamborghini brands, this year unveiled a “Legacy Edition” series for the Audi RS6, which pushed the cavalry of the model at 760 horsepower and 920 Nm of torque. But this was obviously not enough, since a new version of Audi RS6 et RS7 « Legacy Edition » has just appeared, now with a power of 1,000 horsepower and 1,150 Nm of torque !
ABT a thoroughly revised the TFSI engine to obtain this increase in power: we find in particular forged pistons, reinforced connecting rods, new turbos and even improved piston pins. A carbon fiber air intake as well as wider scoops allow it to be filled with fresh air, while an intercooler is also part of the kit.
The German preparer also added a direct water and ethanol injection system, to improve performance. A 15 liter tank, located in the trunk, allows you to refuel every 3,000 km with a specific mixture called IWI/IWE (Indirect Water/Ethanol Injection), which can be ordered from ABT via the MyABT application, which also allows you to monitor the fluid level.
This injection technology plays a key role in the power gain: a mixture of water and ethanol is injected upstream of the butterflies, further cooling the air already pre-cooled in the intercooler. This not only allows for more efficient combustion of fuel, but also lowers the temperature in the intake manifold, combustion chamber and exhaust tract.
ABT specifies that the fuel used must have an octane number of 102 to unlock all of the 1,000 horsepower of the preparation, without forgetting to activate the “RS” mode by pressing the eponymous button, which allows you to activate the water and ethanol injection system. With unleaded 98, the cavalry drops to 940 horsepower and 1,050 Nm of torque, which is already interesting.
According to figures published by ABT, this preparation for the Audi RS6 and RS7 is capable of swallowing the 0 to 100 km/h in 3.0 seconds0 to 200 km/h in 8.4 seconds, as well as 0 to 300 km/h in 21.2 seconds.
But all this has a price: you will need to count no less than 205.000 euros, pose included, to offer you all the elements of this wicked preparation. A budget to add to the 147,910 euros requested for an Audi RS6 Avant Performance, or to the 154,250 euros for an Audi RS7 Sportback Performance.
