ABT Sportsline is a well-known global leader in high-quality aftermarket components and tuning options for the most elite cars from the Volkswagen and Audi Group (VAG). With over 125 years of experience, our legacy dates back to the establishment of an innovation workshop by Johann Abt, a renowned blacksmith, in 1896. ABT Sportsline has a proud history of pushing the boundaries, often resulting in a line of limited edition models that makes other owners of the regular OEM versions a little jealous. In 1967, Johann Abt, (a different one, the grandson) also had a passion for fast cars and that’s when he founded ABT Tuning, eventually launching the world's first chip-tuning product in 1980. Jumping to today, the company is responsible for some of the coolest and fastest VAG cars around. Audi’s RS6 is already a beast of a machine with a twin-turbocharged V8 that generates a stonking 463 kW with a properly powerful 850 Nm of torque that’s sent to all four wheels via Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive system, and it can send the large wagon to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds and has a top speed of 305 km/h if the top option is specced when ordering the car. With ABT Sportsline, there’s even more potential unlocked from the car. Sure the top speed will stay pretty much the same, that’s a gearing thing, but in the power stakes, things change quite a bit for the better.
