New Audi RS5 Coupe Gets Buttock And Power Injections From ABT

As most drivers will only see the rear end of the latest Audi RS5 Coupe, ABT Sportsline has concentrated its efforts in this area.

The Bavarian tuner added a few extra bits, which are meant to make the car look a hint more aggressive compared to the stock model, without going the boy-racer route.

Among the new aftermarket parts, the ABT Audi RS5 gets a ducktail-style spoiler made from CFK, with visible carbon structure. Gloss black tailpipe covers on each side are also part of the package, hosting the four exhaust pipes arranged in pairs, each one with a 102 mm (4 in) dimeter.

Changes made beneath the skin include an ABT engine control unit, new water radiator kit, air intake cover and exhaust system. These combine to raise the output of the twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 engine from 450 PS (444 hp / 331 kW) and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque, to 530 PS (523 hp / 390 kW) and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) of torque.

The extra power has been available from the tuner since the beginning of 2018, when they uncovered the meaner Audi RS5-R, prior to its Geneva Motor Show debut.

And while this new project may lack other bits, the older one has an upgraded suspension, 21-inch wheels, a discreet body kit and several updates inside as well, which ABT will gladly apply to other Audi RS5 Coupes for a premium.
