Abt has prepared very well for the Essen Motor Show, which will open its gates for public tomorrow and one of the cars on display will be this, the Abt Audi AS5 tuning program. The car is powered by Audi’s 3.0 liter TDi turbodiesel which features and Abt Power S turbo kit and now develops 300 hp (that’s 60 hp more than the production version) and 600Nm (442 lb-ft) at just 2,400rpm. Abt has also fitted the car with a new suspension and a 380mm brake kit, especially with the AS5 reaching a top speed of 164 mph (264km/h) and going from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.3 seconds.
As you’d expect, the AS5 also got a new, sportier appearance, with a new body kit, new rear spoiler and a new two-tone paint job, not to mention the BR 20 inch alloy wheels. On the inside, the AS5 features a custom Abt steering wheel with nappa leather rim and carbon-look leather accents and aluminum pedals and gear shift.
