Eklund Racing Audi A5 Drag Car

Audi makes some really great factory sleepers. Anything from their RS line will be a lot faster than it looks, but none of them have anything on this A5. On the exterior, Eklund kept the modifications to a minimum, just the things the car needed. This means it's wearing a set of big Hoosier drag slicks, a parachute and a wheelie bar. There aren't exactly, sure, but they still only barely hint at the enormous amount of power under the hood.

This A5 is now putting out 1,000 horsepower. This hasn't come from shoehorning a W12 into it either, all 1,000 of those horses are still coming from just five cylinders, albeit with quite a bit of help in the form of some serious turbocharging. The interior has, of course, been completely stripped out. Eklund hasn't told us the exact technical specifications of the modification, or the car's quarter-mile time, but you can be sure that both are probably pretty impressive.
