It features a higher tuned engine (+60hp, +60Nm of torque) over what Audi can offer, allowing for 510hp and 660Nm at the crank thanks to ABT Engine Control and a custom air intake cover. And if you want the engine to be pushed further, you can pay for the ABT Power S upgrade and get 530 horsepower and 680Nm of torque along with an optional upgrade of its top speed limiter to 300km/h.
As for looks, there’s an ABT Aerokit adorning the RS4-S and this includes the following:
- ABT front lip
- front blades and wheelhouse ventilation
- Carbon fibre reinforced polymer rear spoiler and rear skirt insert
- ABT stainless steelexhaust system with four 102mm carbon-fibre end pipes

Inside, you’ll find the following:
- RS4-S logos on seat refinement, door sills and floor mats
- carbon fibre for the seat shells, seat frame covers and dashboard covers (optional)
- leather and carbon upgrade for the steering wheel (optional)
Other performance-related upgrades include:
- ABT height adjustable suspension springs
- ABT anti-roll bars on the front and rear axles
- ABT coilover suspension (optional add-on)
Here’s the press release with more.
The current Audi RS 4 can look back on an impressive lineage that goes back to the RS2. While it recently received a facelift, ABT Sportsline is already showcasing the next stage of its evolution. The special edition ABT RS4-S features an alluring aero package and clearly offers more performance*: 510 hp (375 kW) and 660 Nm are the key data. This means an increase of 60 hp or 44 kW and 60 Nm compared to the standard 450 hp (331 kW). This is made possible by the high-tech control unit ABT Engine Control and a special air intake cover. The acceleration is correspondingly impressive – from zero to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds. If you want a further performance upgrade, ABT Power S is available for an extra charge, and this will achieve 530 hp (390 kW) and 680 Nm. As an exclusive extra for this version, a V-max increase to 300 km/h is available on request.
