ABT Made Audi A5 Cabrio
The Germans took an Audi A5 Cabrio, tampered with it and codenamed it the AS5. The "fresh air sports car", as the tuner calls the car, received both exterior and performance enhancements. The modifications ABT has made when it comes to the vehicle's performance levels are quite extensive, as you are about to see, for the entire engine range of the A5 Cabrio.
The 2.0l TFSI engine, which up until now developed 180 or 211 horsepower has been "squeezed" to produce no less than 275 hp. The 2.7 TDI was boosted from 190 horsepower to 230, while the 3.0l diesel was tweaked into developing 282 horsepower, up from 240 hp.
Visually, the A5 got ABT grille, which accentuates the area around the headlights, fog lights and a front apron. At the back, the rear apron and exhaust unit have been designed to match the taillight clusters. The AS5 rides on BR alloy wheels, with a choice of either 19- or 20-inch, respectively. High performance tires are of course a must and they are also provided by ABT.
“It is important to capture the character of the car and emphasize its uniqueness,” Hans-Juergen Abt, the tuner's general manager said in a release.
