300HP Senner Tuning Audi A5 White Speed TDI

Audi’s Le Mans-dominating R10 race cars plus a recent string of TDI concepts have shown that diesels are capable of serious speed and are not out of place in performance circles. Thankfully for consumers, diesel engines are finally gaining a foothold in the performance car market as technology allows them to rev more freely and the seriously big torque they are capable of becomes more widely appreciated.

Furthermore, aftermarket tuners like Germany’s Senner-Tuning have a number of performance upgrades designed to work with the latest in diesel powertrain technologies such as its new White Speed package for the Audi A5 3.0 TDI.

Once Senner-Tuning has its way with it, the diesel coupe will be able to accelerate all the way to 175mph (280km/h). Output from the turbodiesel V6 engine has been boosted to 300hp (224kW) – up from 240hp (179kW) – and 450lb-ft (610Nm) of torque.

The car’s body and interior have also been extensively modified, receiving a host of new carbon-fiber accessories and 21in alloy wheels with 295mm Hankook tires. Finally, the car also rides on a new sports suspension set-up that lowers the ride height by a full 40mm.
