ABT RS6-R And RS7-R Make Video Debut: Fast Audis Made Faster

The RS6 Avant and RS7 Sportback by ABT take the concept of a family car to a whole new level.

Unless car companies will all agree to limit horsepower like Japanese automakers did between 1989 and 2004 when all domestic cars were capped at 276 hp, the horsepower wars will probably never be over. The tuning scene is relevant when it comes to the insatiable thirst for power some customers have as even though today's performance cars have significantly more oomph than their predecessors, people still want more.

Take for example the original Audi RS6 Avant from nearly two decades ago, which had to make do with "only" 444 hp whereas its modern-day equivalent packs a massive 591 hp. ABT has lifted those numbers furthermore to 730 hp for a bonkers edition of the super wagon limited to 125 conversions. Unveiled at the beginning of the month, the RS6-R is now making its video debut courtesy of Motor1.com long-time collaborator Auditography. He also had the privilege of being among the first to shoot the Avant's sleeker cousin, the RS7 Sportback, now dubbed RS7-R after getting the aftermarket treatment.

Bear in mind these are not the most powerful Audis created by ABT as that title belongs to the RS6-E Hybrid, a 1,018-horsepower electrified wagon.
