ABT Sportsline’s virtual shelves that have grown to include new upgrades for the 2019 Audi A6. Suiting both the Sedan and Avant versions of the executive car, they have discreetly updated the way it looks and have also made it more powerful.
We’ll start with the latter part of the equation, which brings the tuner’s engine control unit forward, applied to the 3.0-liter, TFSI V6 version of the car. The result is 419 hp (425 PS / 317 kW) and 405 lb-ft (549 Nm) of torque, up from 335 hp (340 PS / 253 kW) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque.

That’s almost on par with the 2.9-liter, twin-turbo V6 that powers the S6 in the United States, Asia and Middle East. The unit develops 444 hp (450 PS / 331 kW) and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. Europe, on the other hand, gets the 3.0-liter, V6 diesel-powered engine rated at 344 hp (349 PS / 257 kW) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque.
Visually, ABT’s A6 stands out from the stock models thanks to the added front apron and trim pieces for the sideward air inlets. It also gets a rear diffuser replacing the factory skirt insert, which leaves room for the double exhaust pipes with a black look. As for the new wheels, the tuner’s offering is vast and includes 20- and 21-inch sets, from the DR, ER-C, FR and GR series.
The firm also wanted to point out that their aftermarket parts come with a 4-year / 100,000-mile (160,934 km) warranty, and installing the aerodynamic upgrades and wheels won’t void the factory warranty.
