A look at the new aerodynamic parts by ABT shows why people are going crazy over the RS5-R. Thanks to the separate ABT ECU, the performance of the Audi coupé increases from 450 HP to 510 HP. At the same time, the maximum torque is increased from 443 ft-lb to 502 lb-ft.
Carbon fiber exterior parts like the front lip, front flics and a front grille frame with RS5-R logo make for a more dynamic front. On the side of the car, optional carbon fiber side blades and wheel arch vents with carbon fiber fin accentuate the contours of the sports coupe. The carbon fiber upgrades continue at the rear with a rear skirt insert and trunk spoiler. Four 102 mm wide carbon fiber exhaust bezels top off the new ABT muffler 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, RS5-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 RS5 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 RS5 runs off the production line with 19 inch wheels, ABT outfits the coupe with its glossy black GR 21 inch rims. The athletically styled wheels have not an ounce of unnecessary weight and feature a strongly concave rim base.
