Times are changing! While in the year 2007 still the official presentation of the Audi S5 (series 8T) and its suckers V8 was eagerly awaited, one deals nowadays rather with the fantastic suckers rauszuschmeissen. Ok, this action may be a bit exaggerated, but it shows where the journey will go sooner or later. The American e-specialist Polykup has grabbed a first-generation Audi S5 and equipped the Ingolstadt-based company with the technology of a Tesla Model S P85. The factory 421 HP of the Model S are even history because the electric engine of the "P85D Audi E5" now even spits out an impressive 500 HP. But it only worked because the specialists disconnected the motor from the factory-connected inverter.
The inverter has now found space on the left-hand side and can do its job. The 85 kWh battery from the Model S provides enough "juice" with its 16 battery modules in the rear of the vehicle. Instead, the S5 no longer has a back seat, but the luggage compartment has been completely preserved and usable. Allegedly, the range should even be up to 370 km and the S5 is charged via the well-known charging socket of the Model S, which is hidden under the fuel cap. The automatic six-speed automatic transmission transfers the power, as usual, to all four wheels via the factory Quattro all-wheel drive and you can see how well it all works in the following video.
