You Can Already Buy A Tuned Audi RS5 Coupe With Over 500 Horsepower

Tuning

450 horsepower not enough for your Audi RS5? ABT Sportsline has the solution.

The 2018 Audi RS5 was only revealed a few months ago at the Geneva Motor Show as a rival to the BMW M4, but it hasn’t taken long for tuners to work their magic on the potent German sports coupe. Considering the RS5 already packs 450 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque courtesy of its new twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6, you would think that most owners would be satisfied with its performance. German tuner ABT Sportsline strongly disagrees, however, and has released its first performance package which cranks up the power considerably.

With the package installed, ABT has managed to extract an additional 60 horses and 59 lb-ft of torque, resulting in an RS5 that now cranks out 510 horsepower and 502 lb-ft. ABT is charging 4,760 Euros including assembly for current owners of the RS5 to have the package installed, which works out at around $5,600. No performance figures have been supplied, but the increase in power should make the upgraded coupe quicker than the standard model. For reference, the standard RS5 needs just 3.9 seconds to sprint from 0-62 mph and maxes out at an electronically limited 155 mph, or 174 mph with the optional R5 Dynamic Package fitted. ABT isn’t only offering a performance bump, either.

Those who want their RS5 to stand out from the crowd can choose from a range of distinctive 20-inch alloys and integrated LED entrance lights mounted in the front doors that project the tuner’s logo onto the floor. If that still isn’t enough for you, ABT hinted that it’s working on "an even more powerful and limited model." Watch this space.
