Despite being “impressed by the calm and elegant design” of the new Audi A5/S5, ABT Sportsline took a closer look at the models and decided that they need new body kits.
As a result, they added a few discreet visual elements to the entire family, which includes both A5 and S5 versions of the Coupe, Cabriolet, and Sportback, such as the front spoiler, rear skirt, and 4-pipe muffler system.
Topping the new styling is a power increase launched by the tuner earlier this year, which takes the stock 3.0-liter V6 engine of the S5 and massages it to deliver 425PS (419hp) and 550Nm (406lb-ft) of torque. This represents a 66PS (65hp) and 50Nm (37lb-ft) of torque increase over the regular models, thus making it almost as powerful as the new RS5.
ABT has also rolled out power upgrades for various A5 models, including the 2.0-liter TFSI and TDI, and the 3.0-liter TDI.
Completing the bundle of aftermarket parts are a selection of 19- and 20-inch wheels, and coilover suspension springs, available for the A5 and S5 Coupe, and S5 Sportback, which bring them closer to the road by 15 to 40mm (0.59-1.57in).
