ABT AS5: German Tuner Tweaks Audi’s A5 Coupe

Thank you ABT, if you don’t mind I think I’ll just go now and deposit my mini wursts in the dunny… Nein, nein and nein again. What’s with the kitsch bi-colour body paint anyway? Phwee… Bypassing ABT’s AS5 Harlequin outfit, the German tuner’s proposition for the 2008 Audi A5 includes an exterior package consisting of a front skirt with a grid element which emphasizes the single-frame grill and the fog lights, rear spoiler, gill-shaped air-inlets, rear skirt inset in diffuser optics and the 4-pipe rear muffler. Finishing off with the exterior, ABT offers the AR wheel, which is available for the A5 in the sizes from 18 to 20 inch, of course together with appropriate sport tires. -Continued: Click the title above or “Read More…” below

For the moment, the only version of the A5 that’s available with an engine upgrade kit is the 3.0TDI, however, ABT promises to broaden its offerings shortly. Thanks to the improved motor management, the 3.0-liter turbodiesel’s output has increased by 32Hp to 272Hp. If your pocket allows it, you can add an extra ABT turbo charger that lifts power to 300Hp. ABT backs the engine mods with an adjustable sports suspension and a new brake with a disc diameter of 380 millimeters.
