The AS5-R builds on the previous AS5 and features a new 510hp (375kW) powerplant
ABT’s latest kit for the A5 builds on its previous AS5 effort, adding extra grunt and a more aggressive bodykit. The top-of-the-range kit is the new AS5-R, which features a 510hp (375kW) version of the Audi S5’s 4.2L V8. The result of this extra power is a 0-100km/h time of 4.5 seconds and an unrestricted top speed of 292km/h. In spite of this enormous increase in performance, consumption and thereby emissions are similar to the production S5.
Exterior upgrades include a two-tone paint job, a body kit and a new rear spoiler. Wheels are BR 20inch alloys, however, as with all ABT kits, you can substitute any wheels you like. Inside, the AS5-R gets a custom ABT steering wheel with Nappa leather rim. Carbon-look leather accents, aluminum pedals and a special gear shift finish off the package.
Underneath, the suspension has been tuned to give the car a sportier ride and huge 380mm brake discs have been applied.
