ABT Bringing 470 HP Audi RS5-R to Geneva
Their kit will upgrade both the look and the engine output of the RS5, to complete the all-might quattro sports coupe.
Subtle exterior changes have been made, adding a new front apron and splitter, new side skirts and rear wing - all of which are made of carbon fiber. Wheels were not neglected, so the car sits on a set of 20-inch rims combined with high-performance tires.
The interior is decorated with black and red Alcantara, carbon fiber for the door panels and bucket seats with racing stripes. In addition, they’ve mounted a stainless steel roll cage and four-point seatbelts.
Under the sexy painted hood, we find the the same normally-aspirated 4.2-liter V8, but now it produces 470 hp (instead of 450) thanks to a new exhaust system with side-mounted dual pipes. ABT probably decided to do this in order to show their connection to motorsport.
As a consequence of the extra power, 0-100 km/h is reached by the RS5-R in 4.6 seconds - 0.3 seconds quicker than the standard version.
In other ABT news, the tuner is also bringing a hot version of the R8 supercar to the Geneva Motor Show.
