The second-generation 2006 Audi Allroad A6 Quattro (C6) was introduced only last year, but the car already looks like it was designed in late 1990s. The German tuning specialist Abt Sportsline has removed some signs of ageing from the face of the new sports wagon by giving it a set of new wheels, a rear spoiler and by fine-tuning its diesel engine.
The upgraded 2.7-liter turbodiesel with common-rail fuel injection system got its power boosted from meager 180 to more formidable 230 hp, while its peak torque has been increased from 332 to 384 lb-ft (which is 450 to 520 Nm respectively).
More powerful 3.0-liter TDI engine’s power output also rises from 233 to 272 hp and torque from 406 to 479 lb-ft (550 to 650 Nm respectively).
As for the wheels, Abt offers the Audi Allroad Quattro their sexy five-spoke 8.5×19 Zoll ET 50 alloys and 255/40 R19 tires, or 9×20 Zoll ET 40 and 265/30 ZR20.
Since the German station wagon runs on a pretty sophisticated air suspension system, which is capable of increasing the vehicle’s ground clearance by up to 60 mm (from 125 mm to more impressive 185 mm) the tuning specialist decided to leave it as is.
No info on the tuning package’s price as of yet.
