From a performance perspective the 55 TFSI e quattro is the hidden champion of the Audi Q5 models. After all, the plug-in hybrid offers a staggering performance of 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. This is even more than what the SQ5 delivers. ABT Sportsline puts the spotlight on the powerhouse SUV by adding an extensive aero package: The body kit includes a front skirt, door strip attachments, rear skirt and 4-inch (102-mm) twin carbon end pipes. A rear spoiler can be fitted upon request. The particularly striking wide body package also includes fender flares. They not only give the Q5 55 TFSI e quattro an extremely sovereign appearance, but also open up the possibility for spectacular 22-inch alloy wheels.
The world’s largest tuner for Audi and VW vehicles puts the dynamic and elegant ABT GR on the hybrid Q5. Here, a glossy black wheel body contrasts with a diamond-finished rim flange. However, the ABT GR is not just a pretty face. Its fine balance also contributes to optimum handling. And that is not insignificant for a high-powered vehicle such as the Audi Q5 TFSI e.
This cutting edge, plug-in hybrid vehicle combines a four-cylinder petrol engine with 248 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque with an electric motor. Of course, ABT Sportsline has successfully and significantly improved the factory system performance of 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to the ABT Power* upgrade, the combustion engine output increases of up to 305 hp and 309 lb-fb of torque. When combined with the standard electric motor, an impressive system performance of 419 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque is achieved.
Furthermore, the Bavarian company also offers attractive details for the interior. Alongside ABT integrated entrance lights, the latest additions include the start-stop switch cap and carbon/leather gearshift cover.
