ABT’s Audi RS5-R Coming To Geneva Motor Show With 530PS

ABT Audi RS5-R

ABT has announced its presence at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show with a tuned Audi RS5 Coupe, which is limited to only 50 units.

The premium compact car’s 2.9-liter biturbo V6 engine has received a few upgrades that allow it to produce 530PS (523hp) and 690Nm (509lb-ft) of torque.

That’s 80PS (79hp) and 90Nm (66lb-ft) of torque more than the stock model, enough for this Audi RS5 Coupe to complete the 0 to 100km/h (62mph) acceleration in 3.6 seconds, an 0.3sec improvement.

The new ABT RS5-R also features an upgraded suspension with sport stabilizers and height adjustable springs, with the tuner claiming that a special coilover suspension is under development in collaboration with KW.

Its head-turning ability has been enhanced by the special green shade, tweaked grille, front apron, side skirt add-ons, wheel arch vents, decklid spoiler, and rear diffuser with incorporated quad exhaust pipes. The 21-inch wheels replace the standard 19-inch ones, and are wrapped in 275/25 tires.

At the time of writing, ABT hasn’t released any images with the interior, but states that the partial leather seats, with the RS5-R logo, ABT gear shift cover made from carbon fiber, ‘1 of 50’ plaque, and other extras, complete the package.

As previously mentioned, the ABT RS5-R will be shown to the public in Geneva, which starts on March 6 for the international media, and two days later for the public.
