ABT BOOSTS RS FAMILY TO OVER 700HP

Posted by Matthew Bell on 4th February 2020

Despite the new RS6, RS7 and RS Q8 only just hitting the market, ABT Sportsline is ready with a selection of upgrades that see each model from the RS family top 700hp.

Thanks to ECU fettling, the standard power output from the 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbo with mild hybrid engine jumps from 600hp and 590lb ft of torque to 700hp and 649lb ft.

ABT says that because the new RS6’s chassis upgrades have made it possible for power gains to be genuinely useable in the real world.

Power upgrades are also available for the RS4, which sees its V6 engine jump from 450bhp to 510bhp, putting it in line with the current generation Mercedes-AMG C63 S.

Prices are not yet available but we imagine it won’t be cheap as guarantees and warrantees are available from ABT as well as the products being TÜV approved.
