ABT Boosts Audi RS 6 and RS Q8 by 100 Hp and Adds More Aero

ABT’s new treatment packages for the Audi RS 6 and RS Q8 are wild and tasteful


  • Both Audi RS vehicles start life with 591 horsepower.

  • The new carbon fibre Aero package includes RS6-S and RSQ8-S badging.

  • The package will be available as of mid-January.


ABT’s at it again and we’re stoked as usual. Of the many Audi tuners out there, ABT is one of the few that is able to combine outrageous performance and a truly unique style all the while remaining true to the vehicle’s original design. The latest upgrades available from the tuners are reserved for the Audi RS 6 and RS Q8.

The first element as part of these upgrades is a new Aero package. It features numerous visible carbon bits such as a exclusive front lip with the “RS6-S” and “RSQ8-S” model names highlighted in red. Also part of the kit are side skirt and side blades. Both vehicles get a two-part rear spoiler and ABT stainless steel quad-tip exhaust system. Wheels for the RS6-S measure 22 inches while the RSQ8-S rolls on huge 23-inch alloys.

The cabins are similarly updated with new seats, customized door sills, carbon fibre shift knob, and more. GTSpirit adds that there’s also an additional package available which consists of carbon fibre dashboard and seat frame covers.

The twin-turbocharged V8 engine in both vehicles gets the ABT Power S Performance upgrade. The ABT Engine Control (AEC) heightens output from the standard 591 horsepower and 590 lb.-ft. of torque to a very appreciable 690 ponies and 649 torques.
