Bavarian King Ludwig II loved architectural extravaganzas, as you can tell by his fairytale castles. But if he were alive and drive a car he would certainly not only like Neuschwanstein but also the excellent “wagon maker” ABT Sportsline, the globally leading tuner of vehicles produced by the Volkswagen Group, which would be able to […] More…

DC-Baltimore area Audi tuner New German Performance just happens to be an APR distributor, so maybe it’s not surprising they’d have a few customers with an RS 7 or an S6. More interesting though might be what happens when two such customers head off to a local drag strip.

When you read 730 hp/537 kW, you may first think of an Italian super-sports-car or a big truck but not of a roadworthy family or business estate. But ABT Sportsline is still able to surprise its target group and at the Geneva Motor Show 2014 will present its latest Audi RS6 model, the 320 kph ABT RS6-R. “Mind you, the R stands for racy, not for rough or rude,” says CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt: “As with the normal Audi RS6, ours also provides the utmost comfort, sumptuousness and usefulness, limited to 25 cars worldwide.“ More…

At professional skiing events, X-game competitions or the Bull Run cross-continent rally, Jon Olsson likely needs no intro. Regular readers of this website and hardcore Audi aficionados are likely already familiar with him as well, but just in case you aren’t here’s the $20 rundown. Olsson is a renowned freestyle skier, renowned also for the often camouflaged and roof rack bedecked exotics he has at his disposal on location at ski competitions or the purpose-built street-legal LMP style car he used last year to trump the Bull Run.

ABT Sportsline, the globally largest tuner of Audis and Volkswagens, with its interpretation of the stylish and powerful Audi RS7 still has an ace up its sleeve.

Driven: 2014 Audi RS 7

When it comes to the Audi RS 7, I plead the 5th. I refuse to recount who’s driving or the exact state (other than heady euphoria) in which we’re driving, somewhere near the California/Nevada border. I refuse to reveal any of these details on the grounds they may incriminate my co-driver or me as we blast down a lonely stretch of long and straight tarmac at 140 mph while tucked behind a second grey RS 7.

Its full name: Audi RS6 4.0 TFSI quattro; and even it doesn’t exactly hang around when its bi-turbo eight-cylinder engine is suitably motivated. 560 hp and 700 Nm of torque make for irresistible traction. This Avant accelerates from a standing start to 100 km/h in not even four seconds. But despite that – Roland Mayer and his MTM team have done their stuff and breathed even more life into the power bundle – the current version boasts 722 hp and 885 Nm. This knocks a few tenths of a second off the sprint to 100 km/h, now achieved in exactly 3.3 seconds, 200 km/h is clocked in 11.3 seconds and on its way to its top speed of 340 km/h the 250 km/h mark is passed in a shade under 19 seconds.
