ABT Sportsline presents its version of the Audi RS6 Legacy Edition limited to 200 units
ABT Sportsline, the brand that specialises in the customisation of Audi and Volkswagen vehicles, has just presented its latest creation: the ABT RS6 Legacy Edition (LE). Limited to just 200 units, this high-performance version offers breathtaking looks and durable everyday use.
This latest generation version of the RS6 is a well-deserved tribute to a truly legendary model. The original 10-cylinder engine has been downsized to a lighter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that has produced better axle load distribution and allowed it to become a true ‘turn-in specialist’.
Using ABT POWER R technology, ABT has increased the Audi RS6 Performance’s standard 463 kW (630 hp) to 559 kW (760 hp) and 980 Nm, with an ABT turbocharger, ABT intercooler and carbon-fibre full-skirt inserts with an optimised air intake grille.
New ABT RS6 Legacy Edition turns heads
ABT Sportsline presents its latest version of the Audi RS6 – the ABT RS6 Legacy Edition. This special version includes a new ‘myABT’ app that offers owners a view of their vehicle’s performance data, such as additional power increase, coolant temperature and air intake temperature, via Apple CarPlay. Users can also choose from different Charisma settings, such as ECO, SPORT or RACE, to match performance characteristics to fuel quality.
One of the aerodynamic highlights is the ABT carbon bonnet panel integrated into the bonnet of the ABT RS6-LE. This, in addition to the visual aspects, provides improved heat dissipation from the performance-enhanced twin-turbo V8 engine. The special limited model passed the head impact tests required by German road homologation regulations (StVZO) without problems. However, this is only a small part of the extensive aerodynamic kit that ABT has brought to the car. Numerous exposed carbon parts, such as the front spoiler, mirror fins, side sills, rear apron insert or rear spoiler, make it clear that this RS6 is a very special vehicle.
Premium interior finish with ABT and Dinamica
ABT has added an extra touch to the Audi RS6’s luxurious interior with Dinamica fabrics on the gearshift paddles, door sills and trim on the dashboard and seat frames. The combination of very fine fibres and Dinamica’s Teflon coating results in a soft, velvety surface that is resistant to flames, moisture and dirt.
The ABT steering wheel, which also stands out, is characterised by the alcantara finish and the 12 o’clock marking which discreetly shines through the porous material in red. Each ABT steering wheel includes all the sensors of the original Audi version. It is clear that this limited model is a very special product, which is visible with the ABT logo stitching on the top of the headrests and the RS6-LE logo on the seatbacks. The RS6-LE logo is also embroidered on the ABT carpets. Other modifications to the interior of the ABT RS6 Legacy Edition include the door access lighting, the start knob cap and the boot mat with an ABT design.
ABT offers you a perfectly optimised chassis
ABT offers a perfectly optimised suspension system with sporty front and rear suspension springs and stabilisers. The Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport 295/30 ZR22 tyres on ABT HIGH PERFORMANCE IR22 wheels in gloss black finish also contribute to this performance. The ABT in-house stainless steel exhaust system with its 4 pipe covers of 102 mm ensures a rich and powerful sound.
