Abt’s new program for the 2008 Audi A4 Avant station wagon consists of a sporty five-piece body kit, as well as a two-stage engine tuning option.
The body kit includes rather odd-looking (but hopefully aerodynamically effective) front fascia, a set of new side and rear skirts with integrated four-pipe exhaust system (the latter not only looks cool, but also lets the car’s powerplants breath more freeely) and a roof spoiler.
The A4’s front fenders are now equipped with two cutouts that (presumably) allow air get out of engine compartment while moving at high speed. While the rear bumper of the original was rather dull and not particularly pleasant to look at, the new part from Abt looks a lot more energetic (although it constantly reminds me of optional rear diffuser available for current Porsche Cayenne Turbo).
The vehicle’s dynamics is also significantly enhanced with the help of engine tuning kits.
For example, the humble 1.8-liter TSI engine gets revved up from 160hp to 200hp, or even to 240hp. The vehicle’s diesel engine may also have its power output increased.
The first-stage Power package increases the max power output from its normal 240hp to more appealing 282 hp, while the top of the line Abt Power S program delivers impressive 310hp and 610Nm of torque.
Abt Sportsline also recommends installing its adjustable sport suspension and better braking system, making the car more controllable and safer on the road.
