Audi S5 Cabriolet By STaSIS Engineering
The guys over at STaSIS Engineering, a North American tuning company, though that the Audi S5 Cabriolet isn’t powerful enough so they’ve decide to create this upgrade program. They took the V6 supercharged 3.0-liter engine and increased its power by 77 hp, managing to squeeze 410 hp from that power plant. The torque is also up from the standard 344 lb.-ft (465 Nm) to 370 lb.-ft (500 Nm). This extra oomph was possible by remapping the ECU and installing a new high-performance exhaust system.
As you would expect, the car is a little bit quicker now, managing to do the 0-62 mph sprint in only 4.3 seconds, which is 0.7 seconds faster than the standard S5 Cabriolet. To lower the braking distance, they installed Alcon 6-piston monobloc calipers, along with high performance pads, braided stainless steel brake lines and 370 mm 2-piece front discs.
STaSIS Engineering also tweaked the handling of the S5 Cabriolet by installing Ohlins SL dampers that have two settings, along with an adjustable ride height. Other goodies include those exquisite 20-inch aluminum rims that are wrapped around in high-performance low-rolling rubbers.
