Other mechanical upgrades include the introduction of a Bilstein coilover suspension with adjustable height and the addition of a new stainless steel exhaust system.
As for the performance upgrade, the Senner engineers tweaked the 3.0-liter TDI diesel powerplant to produce 300 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque, up from 240 hp and 500 Nm respectively. The car is now capable of reaching a maximum speed of 280 km/h (174 mph) compared to 250 km/h (155.3 mph) on the stock version.
The standard Audi A5 is being offered in a choice of four engines, two diesels - 2.7-liter TDI and 3.0-liter TDI - and two gasoline - 1.8-liter TFSI and 3.2-liter FSI V6. The latter is the top-of-the-range unit, releasing a maximum output of 265 horsepower at 6500 rpm and up to 330 Nm of torque between 3000 and 5000 rpm. This means the car can reach sixty in 6.1 seconds, while topping at a speed of 155.3 mph (250 km/h). Other highlights include a manual 6-speed transmission, all-wheel drive and ventilated brake discs on the front.
