Somebody has played with the Volkswagen Group’s 3.0 TFSI engine again! This time, the three-liter unit, which relies on supercharging and direct gasoline injection to impress, has been targeted by STaSIS, which also took care of the special wrapping chose for the unit, the Audi S5 Cabriolet.

Dubbed Challenge Edition, the package aims to bring out the animal in the S5 Cabriolet, targeting multiple parts of the vehicle’s tech side and offering mods that take the game one step further.

Since we started the description with the engine, we’ll mention that the North American tuner brought the mill, which delivers 333 hp and 440 Nm (324.5 lb-ft) when it left the factory, up to 410 hp and 502 Nm (370 lb-ft). This was possbile through the installation of a custom exhaust system, which comes with quadruple stainless steel tailpipes, as well as through an ECU remap.

The vehicle now deals with the 0 to 60 mph sprint in 4.3 seconds ( an improvement of 0.7 seconds). As for the handling, this should match the straight line performance, as the tuner installed a set of adjustable shock absorbers and also upgraded the brakes, using Alcon six-piston monobloc calipers, high performance pads and stainless steel brake lines.

The Audi S5 Cabriolet Challenge Edition rodes on 20-inch rims that use a multi-spoke design and come in a 20-inch size, being wrapped in high performance tires that give the driver the necessary confidence to push the car to (and why not past?) its limits, regardless of the difficulty level of the road used.
