The Audi RS 5 Coupe is a beautiful powerhouse of a car and since ABT has recently introduced their power upgrades also to the US, the 2.9 Liter Biturbo V6 received a well-desired boost as well.
By using state-of-the-art technology ABT is adding horsepower to the RS 5 and also ensures reliability and durability. The separate ABT engine control unit increases the performance output from 444 HP up to 510 HP and raises the maximum torque from 443 lb-ft to 501 lb-ft.
From the design point of view ABT is adding a lot of Carbon fiber exterior parts like a front lip, front flics and a front grille frame with RS5-R logo to create an even more dynamic front. Optional carbon fiber side blades and wheel arch vents with carbon fiber fin accentuate the side contours of the sports coupe. The carbon fiber upgrades continue at the rear with a rear skirt insert and trunk spoiler. Four 4 inch wide carbon fiber exhaust bezels top off the new ABTmuffler system that amplifies the charismatic sound from the V6 engine that is loved by car enthusiasts all over the world.
What bystanders will only get see if they are invited for a passenger ride are the custom interior parts: a carbon fiber gear shift cover, RS 5-R “1 of 50” dashboard badge, RS5-R door sills and entrance lights as well as floor mats. Optional carbon fiber dashboard covers and seat panels add some more luxury to the performance-oriented interior.
ABT is also taking care of optimising the driving dynamics of the RS 5 with new height adjustable suspension springs and anti-roll bars. A coilover suspension system with a special shock absorber setup that was developed in collaboration with KW automotive is available for drivers that really want to feel the race track when driving. While the factory RS 5 runs off the production line with 19 inch wheels, ABT outfits the coupe with its glossy black GR Design 21 inch rims. The athletically styled wheels have not an ounce of unnecessary weight and feature a strongly concave rim base.
Currently the power upgrade for the 2018 Audi RS 5 Coupe is exclusively available as an option for owners of the limited edition ABT RS 5-R package.
