New Audi S4 pushed to 378bhp by Abt Sportsline
Audi’s new diesel-powered S range hasn’t even been around for a year yet, but tuners have already managed to turn it up a notch for those yearning for more power and a different look. Germany-based Abt Sportsline has turned its hand to the latest Audi S4, upping power and fettling aesthetics to help it stand apart from standard examples.
Abt is no stranger to Audi products, having taken a handful of RS cars to levels no sane person deems necessary, even unveiling its take on the latest RS5 alongside a 788bhp boat complete with dual V8 TDI engines.

In this instance, the tuner has equipped the S4 with its very own engine control unit, helping the hybrid-assistive 3-litre V6 TDI power plant reach 378bhp and a tarmac-tearing 560lb ft of torque, up 34bhp and 44lb ft over standard. Though these aren’t enormous gains, they shave two-tenths off the standard car’s 0-62mph sprint, bringing the number down to 4.7sec, matching the claimed time for the previous B8-generation RS4.
Aside from the performance upgrades under the bonnet, Abt also includes subtle tweaks to the appearance of the estate, lowering ride height by up to 40mm both front and rear with new suspension springs, and including 20-inch Abt Sport GR wheels, in either diamond-cut, or matte black finishes.
Not only do the new springs up the aggression factor, they’re also claimed to improve handling characteristics, helped along by the Abt (optional) sports anti-roll bar.
Pricing and availability for the fettled S4 can be had upon request.
VIDEO: Check this black ABT-tuned Audi S4 in the snow
The Audi S4 Avant is one of my personal favorite cars on the road. As an everyday driver, it’s pretty much perfect. It’s got the looks, the luxury, the performance and the practicality to be used every day, all the time, in almost any possible scenario. It’s just a brilliant car. When it’s tuned by ABT, it gets even more power and more aggressive looks. So when a black on black ABT-tuned Audi S4 Avant goes playing in the snow, we take notice.
In this new video from Auditography, we see just that. This ABT Audi S4 Avant has been tuned to make quite a bit more power. So its 3.0 liter turbocharged V6 engine makes a whopping 425 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque. That’s quite a bit bump up from the stock car’s 354 hp and 369 lb-ft. There isn’t a quoted 0-60 mph time but it should be around the low four-second range, rather than the low five-second range of the stock car. The ABT-tuned S4 makes almost exactly the same power and torque figures as the much more expensive BMW M3 and that car does 0-60 mph in around 4.1 seconds with just rear-wheel drive. So this ABT Audi S4 Avant should be even quicker still. This video shows off some of that performance, by showing it rev up and accelerate to about 150 mph. It’s a quick car.
We also get to hear what it sounds like, thanks to the new exhaust ABT installed. It sounds good and more aggressive than the standard car. Although, the standard S4 already sounds pretty good. Neither the stock nor the tuned version of the Audi S4 Avant will ever sound as good as the old 4.2 liter naturally-aspirated V8 but ABT does their best to make the new S4 sounds pretty good.
This video also shows off just how good it looks. Wearing black paint and black leather, it looks positively menacing in the snow. The black grille, black wheels and black paint give off such an angry, tough vibe in contrast to the white snow. It’s just an awesome car in an awesome environment. Check it out.
I've been in love with cars since I was a kid, specifically German cars. Now I get to drive them talk about them on the internet.All postsQuattroDailyBMWBLOG
ABT Audi S4 Avant. With its 354 HP turbo engine, the latest Audi S4 follows the motto “back to the roots.” ABT Sportsline very much appreciates this in terms of tradition and performance enhancement. A generous 20 percent more power is being poured into it: 425 HP and 550 Nm are now on the data sheet thanks to ABT Power. V8 naturally aspirated and compression engines used to set the tone with the B6, B7 and B8, which naturally was by no means a bad thing, but it did mean a departure from its roots.
Even the very first S4s were fired up by turbos – regardless of whether the version based on the first A4 generation is meant or the namesake from the 100 series, which later rebranded as the first S6. For a start, we want to overtake the parallel-constructed, 8-cylinder version without any charger due to its exotic presence, and preferably add to the list of turbo icons with the Audi 80 S2, which anticipated the concept of the Audi S4 under another name. Turbos can be found everywhere in more recent Audi history, although they are only comparable to the ABT Sportsline-enhanced Audi S4 B9 of today to a limited extent. Thanks to the engine control module specially developed by the Bavarian company, not only can you see the increased efficiency on paper, you can sense it at all times. The acceleration from 0 to 100 has improved from 4.9 to 4.7 seconds, which is exactly at the level of the last RS4.
Visually, an Audi S4 looks very impressive even in a sports jacket off the rack, but a little fine-tuning never hurts. Instead of a pocket square and tie pin, the automotive tuner supplies a front lip and a radiator grill attachment. ABT emblems, plated in black chrome, shiny chrome or matte black, complete the look just as much as fender inserts made of ABS plastic or visible carbon fiber. The only things still missing are the right 19- or 20-inch wheels from the ABT design series DR, ER-C or FR, which are also available in various finishes depending on the type.

2017 ABT S4 Is Not Your Regular Audi S4 Avant Quattro
It’s not enough, though. ABT Sportsline is one of the few entities who advocate for more grunt from the 2017 AudiS4 Avant. And so, ABT’s finest rolled up their sleeves to create the car featured in the adjacent photo gallery. Dubbed ABT S4, this fellow prides itself on no less than 425 PS and 550 Nm. In American money, that’s 419 hp and 406 lb-ft.
The key to this bump in output is the ABT Power New Generation package, which retails for 3,590 euros including VAT. Labor adds €175 to the tally, but still, fewer than 4,000 euros is not a lot considering what you get in return. More to the point, approximately 20 percent more ponies.
An ECUre-flash is all ABT needs to do to up the ante. 0 to 100 km/h also improves, from 4.9 to 4.7 seconds. Other than squeezing more power from the 3.0-liter TFSI V6, the Kempten-based tuner also has some visual trickery to offer. The front lip add-on and radiator grille attachment, carbon fiber fender inserts, 19- or 20-inch lightweight wheels, you name it, ABT Sportslinecan fit it to this ravishing longroof.
The cabin design can also be further for the right price. Here, ABT can improve the breed with premium floor mats, premium trunk mats, as well as integrated LED entrance lights. The latter cost 47 euros a pair and, based on what we can see in the following video, they’re totally worth it.

Abt Has Given The TDI Audi S4 More Power, More Torque And Huge Wheels
The German tuner has turned its hand to the facelifted Audi S4 Avant, freeing extra horsepower and torque from the diesel V6
Remind me later
Abt Sportsline has a long history of fettling fast Audis, and we’ve written about many of them on these pages. Recently, the company has wound the Audi SQ8 up to 513bhp and almost 1000Nm of torque, and it’s also created our favourite hot estate by piling on power on the SEAT Leon ST Cupra.
Now, Abt has focused its attention on the latest Audi S4 Avant. You know, the facelifted one with the - gasps - 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine. In standard form, the S4 kicks out 342bhp and 516lb ft of torque, which is plenty enough for a 0-62mph of just under five seconds and a limited top speed of 155mph.
Installing the Abt Power upgrade produces another 37bhp, for a total output of 379bhp. Torque meanwhile is up to 560lb ft. It’s not a huge increase, but it has brought the 0-62mph time down by two tenths to 4.7 seconds. While it has made the Avant quicker than the saloon, it’s fair to say that it’s unlikely you’d notice the difference unless you drove the Abt car and the standard S4 Avant back-to-back.
Alongside the engine tuning, Abt offers upgraded coilovers as an optional extra. Spec these and you’ll get an S4 with a meaner stance than when it left the factory, as they lower the car by up to 40mm all-round. They’re adjustable, too.
The coilovers are said to reduce the car’s body roll and improve the handling, without sacrificing ride comfort.
Abt also offers a range of lightweight 20-inch alloy wheels for the S4 Avant. The car in the pictures rides on a two-tone set, but black ones are available if you’re after something stealthier. Combined with the lower ride height, it makes one of the most conservative-looking fast estates a bit more noticeable.
Inside, you can get Abt-branded puddle lights, plus lashings of carbon-fibre and more Alcantara trim.

Following the recently reported MTM Audi S4 enhancement, Abt Sportsline takes the Audi S4 into RS4 territory.
The German tuner is now offering a package that provides a considerable kick upstairs in power to the standard Audi S4 model. The S4's already hefty 3.0 liter TFSI V6 is dialed up to 435 hp (320 kW) and 520 Nm of torque as opposed to the production version's 333 hp (245 kW) and 440 Nm.
The resulting performance improvement is evidenced by the new numbers - 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds, compared to 5.1 seconds for the Audi dealer-issued S4. The juiced up model also offers a top speed of 282 km/h (175mph), with Abt having lifted the electronic limiter that keeps Audi's S4 maxed out at 250 km/h (155mph).
Abt promises lots of driving pleasure (to borrow a phrasing from Audi arch-competitor BMW) from the performance kit and assures us it is perfectly in tune with the Ingolstadt-based brand's 7-speed DSG gearbox in keeping the Abt S4 properly humming along.
The Allgäu-based tuner also offers a quad sports exhaust unit and 18 to 20-inch Abt or BR wheels for the S4.
Abt likely intends this performance tuning package to go along with the styling kit it offers for the A4 model range seen in the photos of the white and silver A4.
Abt website prices the upgrade at €3800 plus €60 for installation and €130 for TÜV certification.

ABT recently got its hands on a facelifted Audi S6 in Avant guise to fiddle with its diesel engine and now it’s doing the same with its smaller brother, the S4. Also a wagon equipped with a diesel engine, the recently facelifted performance Avant from Audi Sport has lost its stock wheels to make room for the tuner’s own 20-inch set featuring a diamond-machined black finish for a greater visual impact.
The wagon’s new shoes are complemented by a new suspension kit developed by ABT to lower the S4’s ride height from 15 to as much as 40 millimeters (0.6 to 1.6 inches). The speedy Audi wagon feeding on diesel has also gained a high-tensile spring steel anti-roll bar to sharpen up handling while going fast through the corners. In typical ABT fashion, the Kempten-based tuner is keeping things subtle in terms of visual changes as you can’t immediately tell the car has been modified.
It all sounds lovely, but what about more power? Indeed it has, with the electrified 3.0-liter V6 TDI no longer developing the standard 342 horsepower and 516 pound-feet (700 Newton-meters) of torque. It has been massaged courtesy of ABT’s custom engine control unit to push out 378 hp and a meaty 560 lb-ft (760 Nm).
save over $3,400 on average off MSRP* on a new Audi S4
It goes without saying the extra 36 hp and 45 lb-ft (61 Nm) have improved performance off the line as the S4 Avant only needs 4.7 seconds to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) or two tenths of a second less than the stock model. Applying this upgrade to the slightly lighter sedan will result in a sprint time of 4.6 seconds, which is only half a second than the crown jewel in the A4 lineup – the mighty RS4 Avant.
The S4 package is the latest in a series of upgrades prepared by ABT for a variety of Audi models, ranging from the tiny A1 Sportback to the SQ8 luxobarge.
