The “Daytona grey matt“ paintwork of the ABT RS6-R to be shown in Geneva says it all: with 730 hp/ 537 kW this estate’s engine is more powerful than the NASCAR racers over there in America. And its top speed of 320 kph is also quite something. But all these potent figures should not let us forget that the new ABT RS6-R is also a visual highlight. After all, the car is based upon the Audi RS6 facelift presented at the end of 2014. ”On this fit occasion, with new lamps for example, our extensive body kit really comes into its own,” says Hans-Jürgen Abt, CEO of the globally largest tuner of cars produced by the Volkswagen Group.

Driven: 2016 Audi S6 Sedan (Europe)

When it comes to performance Audis, we consider the S6 and its lineage to remain the brand’s “true north”. Over the years, things like consumer tastes change. Badges move to new nomenclature, supercars get launched and are subsequentally driven by super heroes, Avants become passé to some, while 4-door coupés prove lower slung and more sultry.

It is the model by which audi can measure its direction as readily as that little engraved “N” on your compass will help you find your way in a dense forest. More…
