The German aftermarket specialist package adds 37 ponies to the standard 245 horsepower developed by the 3.0-liter TDI engine, for a total of 282HP. The ABT Power S package lifts performance even further, to 310 horsepower, thanks to the mounting of an additional turbocharger. In the Power S version, peak torque reaches 610 Nm (450 lb-ft), up 100 Nm (74 lb-ft) from standard specification.
The engineers are also working on an upgrade for the 3.0-liter supercharged V6 gasoline engine, which will develop 410 horsepower when it’s ready, up from the standard model’s 300HP.
