ABT Launches 760 Horse Audi RS 6 Avant Legacy Edition

Monster RS 6 says goodbye to V8s?

  • ABT Sportline turns up the wick on RS 6

  • Legacy Edition a farewell to the V8 engine

 


ABT says that Audi‘s V8 era is coming to an end. The tuner isn’t quite ready for that to happen just yet, so it wants to send the burly engines out with a real bang. So say hello to the RS6 Legacy Edition, a 760 hp tribute to the Audi RS 6 Avant.

That’s 169 more horses than the standard RS 6, and the power is accompanied by a whopping 723 lb-ft of torque. The Audi RS 6 is already a rocketship, this will turn it into something even more out of this world.

The longtime Audi tuner brings gets the extra power from the 4.0L twin-turbo V8 by fitting a pair of larger turbos as well as a new intercooler, some cooling upgrades, and a thorough ECU tune. This isn’t ABT’s most powerful RS 6, surprisingly, with that honour going to the 790 horse Johann Abt Signature Edition.

There are plenty of cosmetic changes, too, starting with that carbon hood scoop. There are other carbon parts including the front lip and larger air intakes, wheel arch ventilation, and the new rear wing. Then there are the four 102 mm exhaust tips that should make sure everyone around you can hear the V8 sing.

ABT coilover suspension with lower springs along with new anti-roll bars helps with handling. If that’s not enough, there is a “sports suspension” on the options list. The ABT wheels are 22 inches in Diameter and wear 295-wide Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport rubber.

The company is only going to build 200 of the Legacy Edition cars. The price starts from 102,600 euros, or around $150,000. Of course, that doesn’t include another $15k or so for installation and it doesn’t include the base RS 6 Avant. You’ll need to source one of those, too, with a starting price in Canada of about $133,000.
