ABT are in the midst of a very special year; the ABT RS6 “1 of 12” which is on display at the Geneva Motor Show 2016 is a part of that celebration! The unique RS6 has been build to commemorate the company’s 120th anniversary. Just 12 will be built. We took a closer look at the 1of 12!
The Audi RS6 comes with a 4.0 twin-turbo TFSI V8 and 560 hp in its serial form. The ABT RS6 “1 of 12” improves upon that with an ABT Power S engine control unit, boosting power by 175 hp to a total figure of 735 hp. Torque is now 920 Nm which helps the Avant up to a top speed of 320 km/h.
ABT have also fitted a remarkably unobtrusive bodykit with air inlet panels, front flics, mirror caps, a rear skirt set, all made of exposed carbon. The ABT RS6 “1 of 12“ gets a unique carbon rear spoiler with a “1/12“ logo and four tailpipes painted in a matching body colour. The rest includes fender inserts and a set of carbon side skirts.
The wheels are ABT FR units with five double spokes. They measure 10×22 inches and come fitted with Dunlop high-performance tyres in 295/25 R22. An ABT spacer set has been used to give the car additional width,
Inside, the glove compartment features the “1/12“ badging. The floor mats get “120 years” lettering. The sport-type seats feature a bi-colour leather to match the exterior and the headliner, pillars and the tailgate are Alcantara-clad. Alcantara and leather cover the dashboard and body coloured stitching with carbon fibre accents cover the rest.
We’re certain the ABT RS6 “1 of 12” will be sold out after the Geneva Motor Show 2016 ends. Get in early for your chance to own one. For live updates from the Geneva Motor Show 2016, take a look at our dedicated news channel!
