If you can’t wait for the soon-to-debut Audi RS 4 Avant then you need to see ABT Sportsline, because the tuner’s latest upgrade package for the estate is a serious piece of work.

It has upgraded the 3.0-litre TFSI V6 to produce 419 horses and 550Nm of torque — that represents a 70bhp and 50Nm increase over the stock motor. It can hit 100kph from rest in just 4.7 seconds and it has a top speed of 250kph — but apart from the oily bits, ABT has also tweaked the exterior a tad by adding a front apron and fender inserts.

The Audi also gets ABT badges on the body (they can be had in black chrome, shiny chrome or matte black) and there’s a choice of 19 or 20in lightweight wheels.
