Abt RS5-R! When performance meets light weight!

Reading time approx. <1 Minute

ABT actually lets off steam on pretty much every model from the Volkswagen group, including the Audi RS5. From the factory, the RS5 with 450PS and 430NM torque is anything but weak on the chest. 470PS are now at the Ingolstadt! In connection with the consistent effort to be as "light" as possible, an impressive result.

The slightly increased engine power makes the RS5-R a little faster to get out of the starting blocks than the production model. 4,3 seconds pass for the sprint of 0-100km / h, after all 0,2 seconds faster than the series. Just before the 300km / h mark force and head wind form a unit and the RS5-R has to be defeated at 290km / h.

The look of the RS5 has been changed a lot by ABT. The car now has a new front apron with aerodynamic flaps and a built-in spoiler lip, making the look much more massive. ABT also worked on the rear apron and the side skirts to make the RS5 look deeper.

In order to optimize the contact pressure ABT has designed a rear wing which is installed on the boot lid. Incidentally, each of the attachments was made of carbon.
