    ABT Audi AS4

    Abt AS4: Exquisite sportster in new outfit is the new star

    For the specialists from Abt Sportsline perfect is simply not enough. Members of the family firm, founded over a century ago, follow this motto. Hence, the specialists from the world´s leading tuner of Audi and VW vehicles added their touch to the new Audi A4 and gave the best-seller from Ingolstadt an extra portion of sportiness. The result could be seen for the first time at the Automobil International in Leipzig: The Abt AS4 with comprehensive optics kit and power enhancement.

    The standard 1.9-litre turbo-diesel features plenty of torque, however the Abt Sportsline specialists increased the power of the DI from 96 kW (130 hp) to ca. 114 kW (155 hp). With enough power at hand, a matching optics package is called for. Here, Abt Sportsline again prove to be pioneers and confirm why the company is the world´s leading tuners of Audi and VW vehicles. No sooner had the Audi A4 appeared on Germany´s roads, Abt had a comprehensive optics kit ready.

    With a wide range of body components the Abt AS4 boasts even more sportiness and dynamic qualities than its standard cousin from Ingolstadt. An Abt front grill and front spoiler lip lend the AS4 that extra sporty touch. Abt running boards make the AS4 a real eye-catcher on the streets. Most drivers only get to see this super sporty car from the rear. For this reason the team from Abt Sportsline paid extra attention to the back end, developing a rear apron as well as an Abt rear wing.

    There is more to the AS4 than just its looks: For optimal road handling the Abt AS4 receives a sports suspension that lowers the body by around 35 to 40 millimetres. In Leipzig the two different sports wheels for the A4 demonstrated the diverse possibilities that Abt offer. The Abt AS4 on display is fitted with A25 (8.5 x 18 inch) rims on the driver´s side, with A27 (9 x 19 inch) rims mounted on the co-driver´s side. The two variations are just a sample from Abt´s comprehensive range. A total of 14 head-turning wheels are available in the dimensions 15 to 19 inches. Complete tyre sets are also available.

    An extensive range of power enhancement solutions are also offered by Abt. The smooth-running six-cylinder diesel receives a power plus from 132 kW (180 hp) to 155 kW (210 hp). After undergoing "Abt treatment", the standard 110 kW (150 hp) 1.8-litre petrol engine is boosted to around 142 kW (193 hp). Abt Sportsline also tunes the AS4 to ca. 162 kW (220 hp) and ca. 184 kW (250 hp). Either way, the Abt AS4 is a top sprinter.

    The Abt AS4: aggressive look for the bestseller

    There is hardly a car that was spoken about so much this year as it was about the Audi A4: at its debut in the DTM (German Touring Car Masters) the bestseller clinched the titles in the driver’s, team and brand championship in Europe’s most popular touring car series at first go. It’s a matter of course that Abt Sportsline sets a high value on sportiness, dynamics and high-quality design for the street version of the Limousine the company from Kempten is presenting the result on the Essen Motor Show with the AS4.

    The Audi A4 from Ingolstadt was already born with a dynamic line management. Using premium manufactured body add-on parts, Abt Sportsline understands accentuating this skilful line management. Thus, a marked front grill and a matching front spoiler lip were developed for the Abt AS4 for an equally friendly and aggressive facial expression. This look continues to the Abt side skirts and the rear where the AS4 is equipped with a rear wing and rear skirt. Beside sportier optics the add-on parts also provide an improved contact pressure and so a more stable road holding.

    The driver will appreciate this, as also concerning power, the engineers have done their job on the so-called “volume model” from Ingolstadt. Originally the 2.0 TDI engine performed 140 HP (103 kW) under the bonnet but after the power treatment in Kempten a total of 170 HP (125 HP) can be measured. The chip tuning perfected by Abt Sportsline which enables this leap, moreover causes a considerably improved responding behaviour of the power unit. Appropriate sound comes from the Abt rear muffler with four chrome end pipes and necessary safety from the Abt sport brake system.

    The optimal contact to the road surface is an important fact when possessing so much power – Abt Sportsline has two important components: the Abt sport wheel SP1 in noble titanium design and a size of 8.5 x 19 inch as well as the matching tyres of Dunlop. The tyre manufacturer is not only partner of the champion team Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline in the DTM, but also in the tuning business.

    The package for the Abt AS4 is rounded off by an Abt shift knob as well as marked emblems on the rear and the engine cover.

    The best in its class - the Abt AS4

    The new Audi A4 is definitely the premium model of the middle class cars. All the more when it is additionally improved by Abt Sportsline. The exceptional vehicle shows self-confidently that it is a real winner. With the front skirt, accentuating the headlight area, the Abt AS4 appears aggressive and powerful. Actually, the designers from Kempten managed to enhance the sporty charisma of the car without changing its elegant nature. Like the serial version coming from Ingolstadt, also the AS4 is a wonderful, very comfortable car for longer travels, but much sportier and more agile. Thanks to the well done body kit, one can see these strenghts. Side skirts and fender insets harmonize with the striking front and the extremely dynamical rear. Impressive is the rear skirt inset underlining the effect of the mighty 4-pipe rear muffler. The rear spoiler is not only an interesting stylistic element, it also makes sure that the AS4 never loses grip.


    For the A4, a range of ultra-modern engines is offered, and they all are a perfect basis for the engineers from Abt Sportsline. For example, the new 1.8 TFSI, upgraded with Abt Power from 160 HP (118 KW) to 200 HP (147 KW). The mighty torque of 310 Nm then offers the shear force. With Abt Power S the engine even provides sporty 240 hp (177 kW). Equally good choices are also the self-igniting engines. With Abt Power, the 2.0 TDI achieves 170 hp (125 kW), with Abt Power S even 200 hp (147 kW). The serial two liter Turbodiesel offers 143 hp (105 kW). The Abt engineers know how to make reliable 230 hp (162 kW) out of the 2.7 TDI's 190 hp (140 kW) (Abt Power), while they modify the strongest Diesel, the 3.0 TDI with 240 hp (175 kW), to maximum 300 hp (221 kW), thanks to
    Abt Power S. Then an enormous torque of 600 Nm is available. With Abt Power, also the three-liter Diesel becomes a real power pack. 270 hp (199 kW) and 550 Nm torque unveil the athlete in the AS4.

    The Abt suspension springs, perfectly adjusted by Christian Abt, in particular the
    Abt thread sports suspension enables the car to confidently master every situation and offers a more agile and active driving behaviour. If need be, the Abt brake system
    (345 millimeter disc diameter) or the Abt sports brake system (diameter 380 millimeter) are powerfully operating.

    Wheels from Abt Sportsline's range are the perfect complement for the exceptional premium vehicle. No matter if the successful AR or the new BR wheel, no matter if in 18, 19 or 20 inch, the wheel creations designed in the Allgäu region exquisitely fit the AS4. As a matter of course, Abt also offers appropriate wheel-tyre sets for this car.
