Audi A4 Avant 3.0 TDI by SKN Tuning - 160+ mph 'Bahn-burning diesel

. Thursday, September 16, 2010

The Audi A4 Avant 3.0 TDI is a car we've lusted for and unfortunately been deprived of in America. A powerful, thrifty, utilitarian vehicle combining everything that is awesome about the Audi brand. So, to raise the awesome-bar just a little higher, SKN Tuning has introduced a Stage 2 tuning program boosting the A4 3.0 TDI's output to 298 HP and 450 lb/ft of torque - enough to make us consider moving to Germany.

The SKN Audi A4 3.0 TDI features SKN's Stage 2 chip tuning program, Milltek Performance exhaust system, Bilstein PSS10 B16 suspension system and Radsatz OZ Ultraleggera 20" wheels wrapped in Conti Sport Contact III rubber. All told, the program adds 59 horsepower and 81 lb/ft of torque - enough to rocket this TDI to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.7 seconds on to a delimited top speed of over 260 km/h (160+ mph). Let's see your hybrid do that.
